Abstract:
Avalon, a settlement in space, is intended to be embedded in a system of space law that will allow its inhabitants and controlling entities legally to acquire resources and to trade, and which will enshrine their rights and responsibilities. Such a system is outlined here, based on principles of extant space law, considerations of fundamental human rights, and applicable terrestrial precedents.
