Human Rights for Prospective Martians

Mars One is a crowdfunded space exploration project that plans on sending humans to Mars. The trip is one-way, and after they have arrived the explorers will be expected to set up their own rules of governance and social organization. While the spirit of exploration and experimentation is admirable, certain ethical, legal, and political questions arise. These have been discussed somewhat in the news, on blogs, and now in a paper by Clare Tsimpourla, an LLM student at Strathclyde University, on the rights of the prospective Martians. (via Bookforum)
