In this week’s Space Cafè WebTalk, Prof. Stephan Hobe, Director at Institute of Air Law, Space Law and Cyber Law, University Cologne, Cologne, Germany talked about the future design of the legal order for human activities in outer space.

Prof. Hobe discussed some questions of the future design of the legal order for human activities in outer space.

This included economic space activities like the use of outer space through satellites, coordination via Space Traffic Management, and the use of resources from celestial bodies. Also future forms of the military use of outer space are discussed.

There will be a crucial focus on the question how the legal order for the commercial uses of outer space pays tribute to the main requirement of the Outer Space Treaty to allow a general participation of all countries in the use of outer space and its benefits.

Prof. Hobe also answered relevant questions from the audience.

This Space Cafè WebTalk, held on 8 Dezember 2020, was hosted by Torsten Kriening, publisher of SpaceWatch.Global. 

The Space Cafè WebTalk series is SpaceWatch.Global’s innovative webinar platform featuring global space experts.
