Making Luxembourg a Global Space Hub

Leading the way in supporting space exploration, Luxembourg is the first European state with a legal framework on the use of space resources and comes only second in the world in doing so, after the United States. 

The  Chamber of Deputies is soon to vote on the draft law dedicated to the appropriation of space resources, which follows international law and the Outer Space Treaty. 

 "We want to be first movers and we are now talking to many governments to continue the discussion on a legal framework for space exploration at a UN level," stated  Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy Etienne Schneider  while visiting Luxembourg's Science Centre in Differdange to launch Asteroid Day on June 30.   

Credited for supporting the Asteroid Day live streaming to take place from Luxembourg this year, on the day of the event Etienne Schneider also shared his ambitious vision to make Luxembourg one of the biggest world players for the extraction of space resources, attracting private investors and experts.
