Most of the articles highlight the present space activities and their legality in the light of the existing space treaties. The articles also stress on the need for the progressive development of the space law in various fields of outer space activities. Therefore, the book would be helpful in understanding the intricacies of the space activities from the legal point of view. It would also analyse the practical difficulties and the loopholes in the existing space law and give an insight into the possible ways of plugging those loopholes.
