Commercial Uses of Space and Space Tourism combines the perspectives of academics, policy makers and major industry players around three central themes: the international legal challenges posed by the dramatic changes to the spacefaring landscape; the corresponding legal and regulatory responses to these challenges at the national level; and topical questions of global space governance. Chapters cover emerging activities in commercial spacefaring, including space tourism and space transportation, and identify the regulatory issues that may arise in the absence of a clear boundary between airspace and outer space. By taking a pragmatic, inductive approach, the book aims to breathe new life into the discussion of the air-space boundary, while informing readers about the many exciting recent developments in commercial spacefaring. This book will appeal to lecturers, academics and students in space law and air law, as well as policy makers and industry practitioners involved in the regulation of orbital and suborbital commercial spaceflight, both manned and unmanned.

Recensioner i media

'Thanks to the editors, an outstanding compendium on the most -- relevant topics in space law development is now available.' - Kai-Uwe Schrogl, Zeitschrift fur Luft- und Weltraumrecht 'Commercial Uses of Space and Space Tourism is a perfectly compiled and timely publication comprising of well thought-out ideas related to almost all regulatory issues and safety of operations. The book is spearheaded by the world's leading institution on global governance and its chapters are written by world-class experts in academia, governments and space agencies. In my view, this is the best book covering the regulatory, policy and safety aspects of space tourism, thus it is essential reading (even a reference book) for those who are interested in this subject, be they academics, students, business people, regulators or employees of space agencies, national governments or international institutions.' -- Ram S. Jakhu, McGill University, Canada 'This book provides a cutting-edge perspective on the issues surrounding commercial uses of space. The editors and contributing authors are well-placed to provide sharp insight and critical analysis.' -- Stephan Hobe, University of Cologne, Germany 'The paradigm shift to commercial and non-governmental space activities is still evolving and requires more than ever a robust and reliable legal framework. Wouters, De Man, Hansen and their contributors present in this book the most accurate assessment and the most appropriate approaches to regulate and at the same time to foster this paradigm shift. The particular value of the book lies in its approach not to abandon the current legal framework for a quick-win and first-come first-served strategy but to carefully develop space law further, maintaining its key principles and opening up new opportunities.' -- Kai-Uwe Schrogl, International Institute of Space Law (IISL)
