    New Zealand is urging progress on sustainability in space mining as the country becomes the 11th worldwide to sign on to the NASA-led Artemis Accords for human-led moon exploration.

    Peter Crabtree, head of the New Zealand Space Agency, signed the pact during a ceremony Monday (May 31) in Wellington, N.Z., according to NASA.

    "The Artemis Accords enable us to prepare for future economic and trade opportunities as well as meeting foreign policy objectives," Stuart Nash, New Zealand's economic development minister, said in a government statement from his country.
