Abstract: The research subject is the set of provisions of international law and the U.S. national legislation in the field of legal regulation of commercial activities aimed at the survey and extraction of space resources by private entities. The author studies the legal regime of minerals, contained in planets and asteroids, and the legal possibility of their commercial use by citizens (legal entities). The author analyzes the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act and compares it with the provisions of international law. To reveal the importance of provisions of the American legislation in the field of commercial space resources extraction, the author applies the comparative-legal and the technical research methods, analysis, and synthesis. The novelty of the study lies in the fact that the research of legal regulation of commercial survey and extraction of space resources in foreign states hasn’t been carried out in the Russian Federation so far. The author comes to the following conclusions: international law doesn’t prohibit the survey and extraction of space resources by private entities; persons, extracting minerals form planets (asteroids), have to follow the rules of the state of their citizenship; the Russian legislator should revise its attitude toward private space activity and initiate the development of the concept of the respective law.
