U—Colonization Now 
No uniqueness- space colonization planned in status quoNational Post 07
(June 1,“Space Hotels Seen in Exploration Vision,” L/N)
Mining the moon and space tourism
-- including "space hotels" --
are part of a grand plan for spaceexploration agreed to by agencies from around the worl
d
. The Global Exploration Strategy, released
yesterday
by the Canadian Space Agency and 13 other organizations, spells out what officials are calling theirshared vision for space exploration and colonization
. The strategy makes no mention of the enormous costsinvolved, but says agency officials have agreed after months of negotiation to co-ordinate their ambitious plans.
"With increasing intent and determination, we are resolved to explore our nearest companions -- the Moon,Mars and some nearby asteroids," the strategy says. "Our goal is not a few quick visits, but rather asustained and ultimately self-sufficient human presence beyond Earth
supported by robotic pathfinders." Thedocument outlines the rationale for returning to the Moon and exploring Mars, noting it is fundamental humannature to explore the unknown. The agencies, notorious for incurring cost overruns on such projects as theinternational space station, also make reference to economic opportunities related to the plan. "Already, far-sightedentrepreneurs are thinking about further commercial expansion into space," says the report, pointing to opportunitiesfor companies to provide crew and cargo transportation services, telecommunications and navigation systems, andspace-based resource extraction and processing capabilities. Moon rocks, for instance, are rich in oxygen that might be exploited to provide life-support systems for lunar operations.
