No escape! Feds will regulate you on the moon

The Federal Aviation Administration intends to “leverage the FAA’s existing launch licensing authority” on the moon, for “ensuring that commercial activities can be conducted on a non-interference basis.”

The FAA would do this by licensing who is permitted to occupy and exploit the moon.

The FAA claims it is following a 1967 United Nations treaty requiring countries to supervise their citizens and “non-government entities” in outer space.
