  • Ricky J. Lee
Part of the Space Regulations Library book series (SPRL, volume 7)


This chapter is an introduction and overview of the monograph, which outlines its structure and its hypothesis. It then proceeds to justify the approach taken to analyse the relevant issues in the monograph and discusses the contents of the other chapters. The first and most fundamental question to be answered is the feasibility of mining resources on celestial bodies within the Solar System.
