The subject of Space Law is as indefinite as Space itself. During this panel, we’ll discuss the current contours of Space Law, as well as some potential issues that may arise as the use of Space increases at a rapid pace. For example, is the existing international legal architecture for Space sufficient as more and more private entities displace nation-States as the primary Space-going actors? How should the increasing amount of Space material and defunct Space “junk” be regulated to avoid collisions and Space pollution? How might national security regulations apply to private actors operating in Space? How can domestic legislation in the United States promote peaceful and commercial uses of Space?
