Across decades of space exploration and utilisation - from Sputnik to the comet-chasing Rosetta, from Yuri Gagarin to the International Space Station, from state actors to commercialisation, from space exploration to the exploitation of resources, the rise of the multi-billion euro comsat industry and weather satellite forecasting - a rich body of space law has arisen. As space comes to play more of a role in our everyday lives, space law is becoming more relevant than ever. This book stands apart from existing space law literature. It is the first book that: - features a collection of exciting space law cases; - presents a novel didactic approach to space law; - showcases the variety of legal problems in modern spaceflight; - allows for a hands-on exposure to space law; - addresses law students and students in related study programmes; - supports public outreach.
