Richard Garriott Discusses Luna 21 and Lunokhod 2

Those of you who have been following the Codex and its predecessor for a while now will recall that, back in 2013, it was revealed that Richard Garriott had become the owner of two objects on the surface of the Moon: the Luna 21 lander and the Lunokhod 2 rover.

Evidently, though, the people who run the Space Archaeology blog weren’t aware of this, and thus had a spirited conversation with Richard Garriott via Twitter — about his ownership of the lander and rover, and the politics and economics surrounding ownership of objects on the Moon — back in January.

It’s worth a read in full, but here are a couple choice quotes from Lord British:

It’s that last one, I think, that’s particularly interesting.

    The concept of ownership is only as good as civilized cultures permit it to be. There may not be law enforcement on the moon, but there sure as hell is down here. I don’t think Garriott has anything to worry about, unless of course aliens with whom we have no treaties decide to salvage it. In that case, it’s war!
