As Earth’s resources dwindle, the world’s superpowers and wealthiest corporations are turning their eyes to the moon and planets for valuable raw materials. 

In his fascinating book Who Owns the Moon?, eminent British philosopher A.C. Grayling calls for a new global consensus to curb territorial and commercial ambitions in space, exploring how the devastating precedents of colonisation and terra nullius make clear the need for treaties and conventions that protect the interests of humanity as a whole.
