COSMONAUTICS; VEHICLES OR EQUIPMENT THEREFOR (apparatus for, or methods of, winning materials from extraterrestrial sources E21C 51/00) [2013‑01]
NOTE

  • This subclass covers only vehicles, equipment or the like, which are specially adapted for cosmonautics.
  • This subclass does not cover vehicles and equipment applicable to both cosmonautics and aeronautics, which are covered by the appropriate aeronautical subclasses of class B64.
  • In this subclass, the following term is used with the meaning indicated:
    • "cosmonautics" includes all transport outside the earth`s atmosphere, and thus includes artificial earth satellites, and interplanetary and interstellar travel.
