Space law governs space explorations, environmental preservation, information sharing, high technologies, and ethics.
Alongside space exploration comes the necessity of special regulations. During the last 50+ years, many changes in space study and exploration have occurred: notably, sending the first artificial satellite to space tourism. That’s why space law will become a more popular discipline across legal and non-legal specialists.
