UN Space Treaty Symposium

50 Years of the UN Space Treaty: Looking Back, Looking Forward


Date: 10th October 2017

World-Space-Week-LogoThe British Interplanetary Society is holding a one day symposium to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the UN Space Treaty which has been the foundation of Space law for half a century. The Society invites proposed papers as contributions to this symposium on two themes:

  • Theme 1) The history of the UN Space Treaty and its contribution to the exploration and exploitation of space.
  • Theme 2) The future of the UN Space Treaty and how it may need to change to reflect the changes in space activity such as the growth in non-government activity.

Speakers are asked to send details of their papers via the BIS (click here) to Mark Hempsell and Jerry Stone, coordinators of the symposium.

Be sociable; support the BIS!
