Outlook on Space Law Over the Next 30 Years

Essays Published for the 30th Anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty

This book is neither a historical treatise on the genesis and development of space law, nor a survey of the corpus, nor even a work of legal makebelieve, but simply an essay pursuing a line of enquiry opened up by the members of the European Centre for Space Law. It sets out to chart future trends in the light of the emergence of space law as a branch of international law and of the development of space activities themselves (new activities, new players, interpenetration of space law and national laws), a branch in which the rules and forms of international cooperation acquire a new dimension, transcending the concept of 'global' law. It is essentially prompted by a deep aspiration to see a rebirth - a revival - of that law.

This handbook is a reference work providing a comprehensive, objective and comparative overview of Space Law. The global space economy reached $330 billion in 2015, with a growth rate of 9 per cent vis-à-vis the previous year. Consequently, Space Law is changing and expanding expeditiously, especially at the national level. More laws and regulations are being adopted by space-faring nations, while more countries are adapting their Space Laws and regulations related to activities in outer space. More regulatory bodies are being created, while more regulatory diversity (from public law to private law) is being instituted as increasing and innovative activities are undertaken by private entities which employ new technologies and business initiatives. At the international level, Space Law (both hard law and soft law) is expanding in certain areas, especially in satellite broadcasting and telecommunications. The Routledge Handbook of Space Law summarises the existing state of knowledge on a comprehensive range of topics and aspires to set the future international research agenda by indicating gaps and inconsistencies in the existing law and highlighting emerging legal issues. Unlike other books on the subject, it addresses major international and national legal aspects of particular space activities and issues, rather than providing commentary on or explanations about a particular Space Law treaty or national regulation. Drawing together contributions from leading academic scholars and practicing lawyers from around the world, the volume is divided into five key parts: • Part I: General Principles of International Space Law • Part II: International Law of Space Applications • Part III: National Regulation of Space Activities • Part IV: National Regulation of Navigational Satellite Systems • Part V: Commercial Aspects of Space Law This handbook is both practical and theoretical in scope, and may serve as a reference tool to academics, professionals and policy-makers with an interest in Space Law.

Pioneers of Space Law

A Publication of the International Institute of Space Law

Author: Stephan Hobe

Publisher: Martinus Nijhoff Publishers

ISBN: 9004240284

International space law is less than 50 years old. Although the work on the codification of space law started in the late 1950s, the Outer Space Treaty was only adopted in January 1967. However, much earlier than that, even as early as 1932, the first ideas about legal rules for human activities in outer space were being considered. Very little is known about these early drafts and proposals, and the pioneering work of early scholars in the field remains relatively unknown. This volume seeks to redress this by analysing the biographies and contributions to international space law of eleven such early "pioneers”, whose ground-breaking and original work helped to develop the field in important ways. The collection starts in the 1930's with the Czech author Vladimir Mandl, and dwells at length on the 1950's, the early time of space flight. The section on each "pioneer" is written by different members of the International Institute of Space Law, making this a lively, fascinating and unique collection of essays, of interest to the whole community of space lawyers.

Stattdessen gewinnt er den Trostpreis, einen Astronautenanzug. Als er dann das erste Mal in den fremdartig schimmernden Anzug schlüpft, wird sein Traum plötzlich wahr, allerdings ganz anders, als Kip es sich ausgemalt hatte: Er wird mitten ins Universum katapultiert und findet sich an Bord eines Raumschiffs wieder – als Gefangener von Piraten, die Böses im Sinn haben und keinen Heller auf sein Leben geben ...

Denn die Physiker von heute haben die besseren Antworten auf die ewigen Fragen.

Die Medizin des Theophrastus Paracelsus von Hohenheim

Vom wissenschaftlichen Standpunkte betrachtet

Author: Franz Hartmann

Publisher: SEVERUS Verlag

ISBN: 3863477170

Category: Medical

Paracelsus war Arzt und Alchemist, aber auch Philosoph und Laientheologe. Franz Hartmann macht in dieser frühen Monografie Paracelsus‘ Schaffen für jedermann verständlich und betont neben Paracelsus‘ Bedeutung für die medizinische Forschung, dass seine medizinische Form nicht nur Wissenschaft, sondern auch Heilkunst bedeutet. Paracelsus, mit eigentlichen Namen Theophrastus Bombast von Hohenheim, wurde am 10. November 1493 in Egg bei Einsiedeln geboren. Er war Arzt und Alchemist, aber auch Philosoph und Laientheologe. Er schrieb verschiedene medizinische Werke, die der vorherrschenden Lehrmeinung der damaligen Zeit widersprachen. Er war der Überzeugung, dass die Medizin auf Natur und Gotteserkenntnis basiert und dass Krankheiten nicht durch empirische Befunde allein geheilt werden können. Seine Werke wurden von vielen Ärzten und Apothekern kritisiert.

The International Law of Property

Author: John G. Sprankling

Publisher: OUP Oxford

ISBN: 0191502529

Category: Law

Page: 400

Does a right to property exist under international law? The traditional answer to this question is no: a right to property can only arise under the domestic law of a particular nation. But the view that property rights are exclusively governed by national law is obsolete. Identifiable areas of property law have emerged at the international level, and the foundation is now arguably being laid for a comprehensive international regime. This book provides a detailed investigation into this developing international property law. It demonstrates how the evolution of international property law has been influenced by major economic, political, and technological changes: the embrace of private property by former socialist states after the end of the Cold War; the globalization of trade; the birth of new technologies capable of exploiting the global commons; the rise of digital property; and the increasing recognition of the human right to property. The first part of the book analyzes how international law impacts rights in specific types of property. In some situations, international law creates property rights, such as rights in aboriginal lands, deep seabed minerals, and satellite orbits. In other areas, it harmonizes property rights that arise at the national level, such as rights in intellectual property, rights in foreign investments, and security interests in personal property. Finally, it restricts property rights that may be recognized at the national level, such as rights in celestial bodies, contraband, and slaves. The second part of the book explores the thesis that a global right to property should be recognized as a general matter, not merely as a moral precept but rather as an entitlement that all nations must honour. It establishes the components of such a right, arguing that the right to property at the international level should be seen in the context of five key components of ownership: acquisition, use, destruction, exclusion, and transfer. This highly innovative book makes an important contribution to how we conceptualize the protection of property and to the understanding that much of this protection now takes place at the international level.
