    People laugh at it but, with more and more countries and private companies going into space, this might be a good idea.

    When first they started to think of the ocean, they made ships to conquer the world; first Vikings, later the English who conquered most of the world. Now we have ships that go into space and if you don't get there first and set up a prescience you might be in trouble. I know there is a treaty to stop nuclear weapons in space but how do you check? Now there are weapons which are not nuclear probably more dangerous like [rods of god] that is not nuclear. It was only time that space would be the new ocean for mankind

    I agree that it is a good/necessary idea whose time has come.

    It saddens me though that the United States, Russia, China, etc... will eventually spend trillions of dollars to protect their assets in space when they could all be honorable and respect each other's property at little or no cost to any of the countries involved.

    I think it's inevitable.

    As far as : they could all be honorable and respect each other's property at little or no cost to any of the countries involved. Has never happened and never will.

    Ah, but leave it to mankind to produce potholes even in space. Out of nearly 8000 man made objects in space, there are about 5000 of them that are satellites.
    That’s a lot of stuff to navigate around with zero gravity and friction brakes to help out so I do predict that someone, from some nation will have a fender bender and then we’ll have to figure out who to give the reckless driving ticket to.
    Maybe we’ll have a MSP (military space police) ship roaming around to keep our space cadets in line.......
    They might even have to post an “off limits” sign at that strip joint on the dark side of the moon....
    After all, wherever our military goes, there’s always a cat house, strip joint and a bar that seems to spring up.
