Elon Musk has made no secret of his desire to be the first to establish a colony on Mars, but if you still have doubts about his motives, know that he is already setting up a legal framework for it. And it is doing so by declaring Mars exempt from the Earthbound Act.
There is a section called Operation Law buried under the terms of Starlink’s beta consumer service and discovered by the entire Mars catalog, which clearly declares Mars a “free planet.” As such, it is free from earthbound laws, which means that immigrants here will not have to obey the laws on earth but will be able to create their own. Musk aims to keep them there with SpaceX, this basically gives him free rein to make laws on Mars.
“For services provided on Mars, or for transporting Mars by starship or other colonization spacecraft, the parties recognize Mars as a free planet and have no Earth-based government right or sovereignty over Mars eclipse activities.” This section reads.
Earthbound laws will apply around the earth and to the moon, but nothing more is considered liberating to them. As such, Mars settlers will have to make their own laws. Or, more precisely: “Disputes will be settled by self-governing principles established in good faith at the time of the Mercy settlement.”
Now, the meaning behind the musk “Free Mars” Fully public / confirmed. Then again, for those who continued the latest developments Starlink, A network of artificial satellites, which was to bring the Internet into space, and SpaceX, This may not come as a huge surprise. Not long ago, Elon Musk himself said that the Martian colony would have to be independent of the Earth in every way, as the imaginary World War III could be the end of our planet, so the settlers had to learn to do without any outside help. .
