DRAFT June 1947Relationships with Inhabitantsof Celestial BodiesRelationships with extraterrestrial men presentsno basically new problem from the standpoint of internationallaw; but the possibility of confronting intelligent beingsthat do not belong to the human race would bring up problemswhose solution it is difficult to conceive.In principle, there is no difficulty in accepting thepossibility of coming to an understanding with them, and ofestablishing all kinds of relationships. The difficulty liesin trying to establish the principles on which theserelationships should be based.In the first place, it would be necessary to establishcommunication with them through some language or other, andafterwards, as a first condition for all intelligence, thatthey should have a psychology similar to that of men.At any rate, international law should make place fora new law on a different basis, and it might be called "LawAmong Planetary Peoples," following the guidelines found inthe Pentateuch. Obviously, the idea of revolutionizinginternational law to the point where it would be capable ofcoping with new situations would compel us to make a changein its structure, a change so basic that it would no longerbe international law, that is to say, as it is conceivedtoday, but something altogether different, so that it couldno longer bear the same name.If these intelligent beings were in possession of amore or less culture, and a more or less perfect politicalorganization, they would have an absolute right to berecognized as independent and
eoples, we wouldhave to come to an agreement with them to establish thelegal regulations upon which future relationships should bebased, and it would be necessary to accept many of theirprinciples.Finally, if they should reject all peacefulcooperation and become an imminent threat to the earth, wewould have the right to legitimate defense, but only insofaras would be necessary to annul this danger.
Another possibility may exist, that a species of homosapiens might have established themselves as an independentnation on another celestial body in our solar system and
' *:
evolved culturely independently from ours. Obviously, thispossibility depends on many circumstances, whose conditionscannot yet be foreseen. However, we can make a study of thebasis on which such a thing might have occurred,
In the first place, living conditions on these bodieslets say the moon,-or the planet Mars, would have to be suchas to permit a stable, and to a certain extent, independentlife, from an economic standpoint. Much has been speculatedabout the possibilities for life existing outside of ouratmosphere and beyond, always hypothetically. and there arethose who
so far as to give formulas for the creation ofan artificial atmosphere on the noon, which undoubtedly havea certain scientific foundation, and which may one day cometo light. Lets assume that magnesium silicates on the moonmay exist and contain up to 13 per cent water. Using energyand machines brought to the moon, perhaps from a space station,the rooks could be broken up, pulverized, and then backed todrive off the water of crystallization. This could be collectedand then decomposed into hydrogen and oxygen, using an electric.current or the short wave radiation of the sun. The oxygencould be used for breathing purposes; the hydrogen night beused as a fuel.In any case, if no existence is possible on celestial 'bodies except for enterprises for the exploration of theirnatural riches, with a continuous interchange of the men whowork on them, unable to establish themselves there indefinitelyand be able to live isolated life, independence will nevertake place.Now we come to the problem of determining what todo if the inhabitants of
bodies, or extraterrestrialbiological entitles (EBE) desire to settle here.1. If they are politically organised and possess acertain culture similar to our own, they may be recognized asa independent people. They could consider what degree ofdevelopment would be required on earth for colonizing.
If they consider our culture to
evoid of politicalunity, they would have the right to colonize. Of course, thiscolonization cannot be conducted on classic linos.
A superior form of colonizing will have to be conceived,that could be a kind of tutelage, possibly through the tacitapproval of the United Nations. But would the United Nationslegally have the right of allowing such tutelage over us in such
have no right of tutelage, since its domain does not extendbeyond relationships between its members. It would have theright to intervene only if the relationships of a membernation with a celestial body affected another member nationwith an extraterrestrial people is beyond the domain of theUnited Nations, But if those relationships entailed aconflict with another member nation, theUnited.Nations wouldhave the right to intervene•(b) If the United Nations were a supra-nationalorganisation, it would have competency to deal with allproblems related to extraterrestrial peoples. Of course,even though it is merely an international organisation, itcould have this competence if itsmember states would bewilling to recognize it.It is difficult to predict what the attitude ofinternational law will bo with regard to the occupation bycelestial peoples of certain locations on our planet, butthe only thing that can be foreseen is that there will bea profound change in traditional concepts•We cannot exclude the possibility that a race ofextraterrstrial people more advanced technologically andeconomically may take upon itself the right to occupyanother celestial body. How, then, would this occupationcome about?1. The idea of exploitation by one celestialstate would be rejected, they may think it would be advisableto grant it to all others capable of reaching anothercelestial body. But this would be to maintain a situationof privilege for these states.
The division of a celestial body into zonesand the distribution of them among other celestial states.This would present the problem of distribution. Moreover,other celestial states would be deprived of the possibilityof owning an area, or if they were granted one it wouldinvolve complicated operations.3. Indivisible co-sovereignty, giving each celestialstate the right to make whatever use is most convenient to. .its interests, independently of the others. This wouldcreate a situation of anarchy, as the strongest one wouldwin out in the end*4. A moral entity? The most feasible solution it
