    How do the mining rights work in a case like this? Is it a total free-for-all where you can take whatever you can get away with? Have all the countries on Earth agreed to the same interplanetary treaties about asteroid rights, or is this just exporting war to outer space? If I kill someone out there in order to steal his water, I’m not sure what jurisdiction is supposed to prosecute me – will there be space cops?

    I’m serious. If we’re going to make science fiction science fact, then let’s think about all the consequences. Sci fi has been preparing us for space battles for a very long time.

    Since we get along so well when it comes to sharing oil down here, it ought to be no problem sharing water out there….
