What Is Space Law?

“Space Law” is just as it sounds—that which governs space-related activities, including space exploration, liability for damage, weapons use, rescue efforts, environmental preservation, information sharing, new technologies, and ethics, encompassing both international and domestic agreements, rules, and principles. Space law is also tightly intertwined within the purview—or universe—of other fields of law such as administrative law, intellectual property law, arms control law, insurance law, environmental law, criminal law and commercial law.
