Om boka

Spaceflight is a rational undertaking, yet full of emotions. It is a dream of mankind and a multi-billion industry likewise. It is subject to a distinct branch of law - and moreover part of modern pop culture. In short: spaceflight is fascinating. "Outer Space in society, politics and law" is an inter-disciplinary approach to the understanding of modern space law. Technical, cultural and historical aspects lay the foundation for a sound comprehension why space law norms have been established and what they mean in practice. The reader will realize the impact space and spaceflight have on society - from Stonehenge to climate change. A new approach to presenting space law: comprehensive and illustrative.





"We live in a society absolutely dependent on science and technology and yet have cleverly arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. That's a clear prescription for disaster."

Carl Sagan
