Outer Space: Law, Policy and Governance

G.S. Sachdeva (Author) Vinod Patney (Introduction)

In the wake of the euphoria consequent to the Soviet space forays and the US landing on the moon, innovative space law evolved rather rapidly in just two decades and then came a stalement. In this hasty growth of nascent space law, some gaps remained, some inadvertently due to lavk of vision and some deliberately, due to lavk of consensus or because half-baked concepts remained pending till the achievement of a better understanding of space phenomena or development of supportive technology. These issues have since started jumping to centre-stage and this book falls in this niche of deficiencies.

A few challenges and unresolved contingencies that stare us in the face, needing to be addressed suitably, are space jurisprudence in jus cogens of space law, pointers on policy issues for India, modalities for sharing of benefis between nations, procedure for nomination of an astronaut as envoy of mankind in space by name o designation to avoid confusion in the eventuality of multiple astronauts of multiple nationalities, all being at one place at the same time, et al. This book is a modest effort to help resolve issues in that direction.
