Elon Musk and SpaceX stated regarding the future of the human species on Mars that “no land-based government has authority or sovereignty over Martian activities.”
There’s no doubt Elon Musk already has his sights set on Mars with SpaceX working day and night to fulfill his dream: Establish a colony on the red planet. But, what about the laws of Marcianas, who creates them? Who defines them, enforces them? And the truth is that it is a great question.
Musk plans a Mars colony that will not be ruled by “any Earth-based government” and will follow its own “principles of self-government.” SpaceX will use its Starlink Internet project to give those who colonize Mars access to Internet services, and these people will not be forced to recognize international law.
This is directly outside the terms of service of SpaceX’s Starlink Internet project, where the government law section reads: “For services provided on Mars, or in transit to Mars via Starship or other colonization spacecraft , the parties recognize Mars as a free planet and that no terrestrial government has authority or sovereignty over Martian activities.
In addition, he added that ” Consequently, disputes will be resolved through principles of self-government, established in good faith, at the time of the Martian settlement .” It is worth mentioning that the Declaration of the Rights and Responsibilities of Humanity in the Universe establishes that space must be “considered free, by all, of all and for all”.
