Silicon for microchips, manganese for batteries, titanium for missiles – our moon contains a wealth of natural resources. As the Earth’s supplies begin to dwindle, it’s no surprise that the eyes of the world’s superpowers and wealthiest corporations have turned towards space. But who, if anyone, owns the moon? Or other bodies in near space? And what do these corporations owe to Planet Earth and its inhabitants? Join Professor A.C. Grayling for this keynote talk which puts forward a compelling argument for a bold new global consensus, one that defends the rights and future of everyone who lives on this planet.
