    Title

    Balancing Needs: Protection of Space Science

    Description

    The intense uses of outer space by new space technology, as mega constellations or uncoordinated space mining can have harmful effect to other activities, like space astronomy. The session discusses the question of conflicting needs in space exploration and exploitation, and the regulatory approaches to their balancing. From the legal perspective, it presents the problem of the protection of Dark Skies and the Moon surface for astronomy and analyses the question of some resources as the Moon ice from the point of view of protecting the chemical and biological research, as examples. The session invites contributions discussing the freedom of exploration and use of outer space, the problem of balancing different needs in space activities, the protection of space science, especially the astronomy, the legal position of the Moon ice. The COSPAR principles are considered, as well as other international law models aiming at balancing different needs in state-free areas.
