NASA’s Artemis Accords document seeks collaborative moon exploration

В NASA предложили России участвовать в соглашении по Луне

The Accords emphasize a few of the Treaty's Articles in particular, including one that says that the Moon and other celestial bodies are "not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means". "Hopefully you've seen it in our own actions in how we comport ourselves at NASA".

NASA has laid out the principles through which it will operate its Artemis program to return astronauts to the moon in a document called the Artemis Accords, and has asked its partners - including both global space agencies and private companies - to agree to them.

The Artemis Accords would apply to missions aimed toward sending astronauts to the lunar floor starting as early as 2024, Greekwire, com stories.

"Specifically, via the Artemis Accords, NASA and partner nations will provide public information regarding the location and general nature of operations which will inform the scale and scope of 'Safety Zones, '" NASA officials wrote.

It is not yet known which United States countries are negotiating accession to this agreement.

Therefore, under Artemis Accords agreements, NASA and partner nations will also commit to the protection of sites and artifacts in space with historic value. Partner nations will be required to publicly describe their own policies and plans in a transparent manner.

The US aerospace agency NASA introduced the "Pact of Artemis" - an agreement between space countries on the rules for the exploration of the moon. These are in addition to the principles grounded in the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, "to create a safe and transparent environment which facilitates exploration, science, and commercial activities for all of humanity to enjoy". There are already many nations that take part in agreements and treaties, but the process of space exploration is much more than that. For one, Russian Federation isn't very pleased with this idea and Dmitry Rogozin, director-general of Russia's Roscosmos argued that "the principle of invasion is the same, whether it be the Moon or Iraq".

He and NASA's deputy administrator, Jim Morhard, spoke with Ars in advance of Friday morning's announcement. "We hope for Russian support moving ahead and look forward to engaging with Russia moving ahead".

"I hope that when our colleagues in Russian Federation see what we're trying to achieve, they will support what we're trying to accomplish - to achieve norms of behavior for a peaceful and prosperous future", Gold said on Friday.
