This is why the UN should be vested with ultimate sovereignty in space (as well as all territory outside of individual UN member states). Thete should be a uniform system of laws for all of space with which people living and working there would be under. And the absolute last thing that should happen is for Earth countries to be allowed to establish their own colonies and territories in space.

Actually, an American astronaut can drink at 18, as the federal drinking age is 18. Its only the states that set it at 21, and so it doesn't apply on military bases, for example.

America invented space... sorry i thought the first human in space was from the U.S.S.R. PLUS when America eventually managed it , it was only due to the fact they used german scientists .... before using the Germans almost every test failed . So if anything america didn't really achieve anything on their own

But I never agreed to any of the governments laws, I can have marijuana if I want anywhere on earth because no one owns the country’s, especially my property, no birth certificate, no citizen, no Capitis Dominutio Maxima Straw Man Representing A Corperation Government Name, I’m myself and no government owns me

Doubtful any astronaut having done all that is needed to become an astronaut and go into space would waste time committing any crimes but it is an interesting hypothetical.

You can't do a line in zero-G. The little particles of cocaine would just float off before you got them into formation. They'd also play hell with instrumentation and stuff, just like bread crumbs. You'd be inhaling tiny bits of cocaine for months if not years.

So, it's not that far off that people plan on colonising mars, which means attempting to breed on Mars. Then we get into the questions of the babies nationality, would we have to start considering mars its own entity?

It's exactly the same with aerial flight. Brazil solemnly swears Dumont flew a proper unaided aircraft first, U.S. solemnly sticks to its brothers "lighter than air flight" thing.
