I've been investigating Krafft Arnold Ehricke's thoughts upon human expansion into space. Ehricke was a rocket propulsion engineer who promoted a philosophical concept called the "Extraterrestrial Imperative." Ehricke believed that it was the responsibility of humanity to explore space and exploit the resources of the Solar System in order to sustain the development of the species. I thought it might be interesting to have a discussion here within the context of Asgardia about his three Laws of Aeronautics.
First Law: Nobody and nothing under the natural laws of this universe imposes any limitations on man, except man himself.
Second Law: Not only the Earth, but the entire Solar System, and as much of the universe as he can reach under the laws of nature, are man's rightful domain of activity.
Third Law: By expanding throughout the universe, man fulfills his destiny as an element of life, endowed with the power of reason and the wisdom of the moral law within himself.
