    Title

    Legal Perspectives on Space Resources and Off-Earth Mining

    Description

    The development of space technology leads the plans to exploit space resources closer to reality. With this use of outer space, the principles of the law of outer space are challenged: Is this legal framework outdated? Under which conditions can segments of celestial bodies used for space missions be taken to the Earth and exploited industrially? Are the States who are not parties of the Moon Treaty obliged to adopt an international regime governing the distribution of space resources? How should such a future international regime be shaped?
