Law in Space – What for?
“That’s one small step for a man – one giant leap for mankind“. There is probably nobody on Earth who hasn’t heard those words of Neil Armstrong. But with the landing on the moon and the planting of an american flag in its soil Neil kicked off a load of questions you didn’t even think about.
Who owns the moon? Can the moon be any nations property? Which country’s law system are in force in space? Was the most famous step in the history of mankind a case of trespassing?
50 years later, several hightech-billionaires have started a real race to space and plan missions to occupy moon and mars. With more players involved usually comes a regulation.
But what is space law and why do we need it? Who sets space law and what are space lawyers doing? How can students get engaged in the field of space law?
In cooperation with SpaceWatch.Global, a platform for the global space community, ELSA Frankfurt am Main will host an event to answer you all the questions above and more. Together we will talk to Professor Michelle Hanlon, Co-Director of the Center for Air and Space Law at the University of Mississippi and one of the leading space lawyers in the world.
After having answered the main questions of space law you will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to ask Professor Michelle Hanlon all the questions you ever had about space law. With this unique event, spacewatch.global is launching a new format of it’s famous space-cafés: the space café young global talents. Come and join!
