In July, a rock with a platinum core passed that was worth £3.5 trillion passed by Earth. Planetary Resources, an American company that intends to make money by mining asteroids, said that the new law was the “single greatest recognition of property rights in history”, and that it “establishes the same supportive framework that created the great economies of history, and will encourage the sustained development of space”.Much of the ownership of space is regulated by the “Outer Space Treaty”, a document that was signed by the US and Russia among other countries in the 1960s.
She uses quotations from 19th century LDS leaders to support this position and claims that public school was only allowed in Utah “so we could have statehood.” She comes perilously close to saying that several generations of Saints have been cursed because of a decision by earlier prophets to allow public schools so that Utah could become a state.

As well as giving the right to mine asteroids, it extends America’s commitment to the International Space Station and makes it easier for to run a private space startup company.
It is hoped that the new rules will allow people to harvest the often vast amounts of expensive resources that are inside of the asteroids that fly near our planet. It also requires that US authorities specify the way that asteroid mining will be regulated and organised.
Until now, space has largely been treated as publicly-owned, meaning that nobody could claim commercial ownership of anything that was out there.
The US government has now thrown out that understanding so that it can get rid of “unnecessary regulations” and make it easier for private American companies to explore space resources commercially.In earlier civilizations and among primitive peoples, where there was less communication between different settlements or groups, different methods of reckoning the day presented no difficulties.Most primitive tribes used a dawn-to-dawn reckoning, calling a succession of days so many dawns, or suns.A calendar is convenient for regulating civil life and religious observances and for historical and scientific purposes.The word is derived from the Latin , since this is concerned with reckoning time by regular divisions, or periods, and using these to date events.This is not accurate; in 1870, 20% of the population was illiterate, including 80% of African Americans.
