Richard Westfall

Broadcast 292 (Special Edition)

Richard Westfall discussed the legal concept of telepossession and how it can be used to facilitate mining in-situ resources on the Moon, nearby asteroids and elsewhere in space. Richard went into some detail explaining how the concept works, that it is based on the legal concept of first possession and not salvage rights as was initially understood. He explained why first possession is so important for developing space commerce and getting the necessary financing for commercial space projects.
