Mars Won't Follow Earth-Based Laws

The Founder of SpaceX Elon Musk's planned colony on the Red Planet will not be ruled by any "Earth-based government" and will instead adhere to is own "self-governing principles," according to report Friday.

“For services provided on Mars, or in transit to Mars via Starship or other colonization spacecraft, the parties recognize Mars as a free planet and that no Earth-based government has authority or sovereignty over Martian activities,” the governing law section states.

Instead, disputes “will be settled through self-governing principles, established in good faith, at the time of Martian settlement,” it notes.

The service terms, however, note that earthlings using the internet on the Earth’s Moon must follow the laws of California.
