This Just In: Outer Space Law

Outer Space Law, edited by Yanal Abul Failat and Anél Ferreira-Snyman, is now in its second edition. The book is aimed at readers looking for a single title to understand the key issues relevant to space law, but also the practical application of those issues. The involvement of private actors has given rise to a number of new legal issues, including questions pertaining to liability, insurance, space debris, human rights and property rights in space. The second edition has updated all the existing chapters and several new chapters have been added including:

  • The regulation of satellite navigation systems and satellite constellations
  • The application of human rights in outer space settlements
  • The exploration and colonization of outer space
  • Planetary protection
