Space Law : The Emerging Trends

The space law started to emerge as a separate branch of international law. During 1960s and 70s, five major treaties were entered into the field of outer space under the auspices of the United Nations. However the progressive development of space law halted after the Moon Agreement in 1979 due to the divergence in the opinion of the States. Now in the 21st century, with the entry of private sector into space activities, commercial use has emerged as a single largest use of outer space. This has made the world community to rethink on the existing space law which is directed towards the regulation of traditional State activities in outer space and not towards the regulation of modern commercial activities.

With the entry of private players into the realm of space activities, we find the existing international space treaty regime is inadequate to deal with manifold nuances of space activities. This brings forward the question--what steps need to be taken to deal with the emerging trends in space activities?

The nature of different emerging activities in outer space has been studied, which include space tourism, space transportation, space research, exploitation of space resources, and human habitation in outer space. Also the inadequacy of current legal regime to regulate these activities needs to be explored to suggest a working model for regulating and channelizing space activities.

Hence, an attempt is made through this book by the contibutors who have explored the possibilities of legal regulation of emerging trends in space activities through concerted effort at both national and international levels.
