• Such a project would violate international law.
  • That depends on who did it. MOST nations - including, I believe, ALL of the current nuclear powers excepting North Korea (and, technically, Russia) - have signed the treaty that disallows the placement of nukes in space. Certainly the U.S., China and the Soviet Union signed the treaty. More info: {{ }}

      I should have specified "nations" since international law differs inapplicability to individuals. Sometime in the 1980s, a man named Dennis Hope used a loophole in the United Nations Outer Space Treaty to file a claim of ownership of the moon. His claim has never been contested.
      Interesting. I vaguely remember something of the sort. It turns out the thing has grown far worse than either of us could have imagined...
