Most people may never have heard about something called ’space law’. Yet, given the increasing importance of space applications even in our everyday life, law and regulation is becoming crucial. Take for instance space tourism. A trip to space, flying weightlessly in a space-shuttle or a quick visit to the moon: it won’t last long before an exotic holiday trip can be spent in space. Right now international rules are developed to prepare for an age in which space activities and space applications become indispensable for human life on Earth. Frans von der Dunk is one of the first few space lawyers. In this lecture, he will show the audience how new rules and regulations are developed for this exciting new frontier in tourism.
