Did you know that last week – when the people of America were carving their Thanksgiving turkeys – President Barack Obama was signing the Space Act of 2015?
The Space Act of 2015 is meant to be a way of encouraging small independent space companies.
It allows them to launch rockets with little government interference and gives them property rights to any resources they mine from asteroids. Like water and minerals.
