I wonder if we'll survive long enough for those in power to fark up outer space.

We can add it to the things the US refuses to sign off on, like food as a human right and the condemnation of Nazis.

Just have the UN update space law to include Earth.  Earth is in space, and if weapons are outlawed in space, weapons on earth are outlawed.

Problem solved.

Oh, that could happen tomorrow. All it would take is one good missile exchange, and we'd have a field of high speed debris that would utterly destroy all the satellites that run all our communications, GPS, weather monitoring, and bar humans from accessing orbit for literally thousands of years.

The UN needs to pull off its one world government plan. Playing Stellaris at the moment and wishing it was real instead of this sucky simulation. I never understood why people thought that would be a bad thing.

In space, it's just called 'law'.

Wobambo: one world government plan


Think of China as the global government and the Uighurs as the population of the entire Middle East and you might have an idea why it scares the hell out of people.

Honestly, the U.N. shouldn't be as weak as it is, but we need to know how to stop it from getting too powerful while making it stronger.

I read that as "Middle Earth" but I suppose it works both ways.

Note to all: Mass Drivers - BAD IDEA.  Especially when we only have one planet to begin with.

Elon is doing a bang up job of farking up the space around our planet. You see what the Russians did? What are you going to say when hundreds of Elon's satellites hit each other a day?

A pity, as Subby's mom was looking forward to all the space "junk".

My law school had space law classes on the books, but none ever came up to select in any of the six semesters I was there. I wonder if that's changed?
