Title

Moon and Mars Settlement: Open Legal Issues

Description

The future Moon and Mars settlements shall not take place in a lawless space. They will be framed by valid international law; this has, however, only general answers to numerous concrete questions. To discuss the question of application of international and national laws to the future settlements on celestial bodies, the session invites contributions on the issues of authorization of space activities, the collision of national legislations, the jurisdiction in civil and criminal cases, the extension of human rights to the persons on the celestial bodies, the ownership of objects created on celestial bodies, intellectual property, the protection of environment, space transport, as well as allocation of frequencies to the Lunar and Martian communication.
