Ethical Exploration and the Role of Planetary Protection in Disrupting Colonial Practices

Ethical Exploration and the Role of Planetary Protection in Disrupting Colonial Practices

This is a really interesting paper from NASA asking people to consider how we go about exploring the solar system, setting up bases on the Moon, Mars and Beyond and consider the ethical and other impacts of us.

Trying to avoid the human history of colonisation of other parts of the world, and the way we treated and in some cases wiped out entire groups of people either directly or indirectly through spreading of disease.

I am going to set up a post on my blog and also a thread on Mastodon facilitate further discussion to hopefully will complement this post here.
