session 4

Title

Legal Issues of Space Traffic Management

Description

The current amount of 10.000 man-made space objects larger than 10 cm including approx. 650 spacecraft and the fact that the number of launches as well as the number of actors (governmental as well as non-governmental) are growing lead to the expectation of a growing number of space debris in the future. This makes space traffic management necessary which may limit the present enjoyment of the freedoms of outer space: In the IAA Cosmic study of 2010 Space Traffic Management is defined as “the set of technical and regulatory provisions for promoting safe access into outer space, operations in outer space and return from space to Earth free of physical or radio-frequency interference”. Speakers in this session are invited to highlight legal problems and present proposals for the frame of the legal regime for space traffic management.
