Register today for our Space Café “Law Breakfast with Steven Freeland” on 19 May 2022

Space Café “Law Breakfast with Steven Freeland” will analyse current space developments with a legal focus. It will, at the same time discuss and ‘demystify’ the law for everyone. In our next Space Café “Law Breakfast with Steven Freeland”, Host Steven Freeland, Emeritus Professor of International Law at Western Sydney University, Sydney and Professorial Fellow at Bond University, Australia, and Co-Host Torsten KrieningSpaceWatch.Global’s Publisher, welcome Ranjana Kaul and Kai-Uwe Schrogl at the wonderful and cosy Café in Delhi, India.

Over bagels, croissants, coffee and other treats, we will discuss many legal issues arising from everyday space activities, including the following:

  • How the overarching theme of ‘peaceful uses’ represent an essential element in the international regulation of the use and exploration of outer space.
  • How peaceful uses of outer space involves all stakeholders in the global space sector, including the United Nations, all countries (whether actively space-faring or not), industry and every aspect of civil society.
  • How the peaceful uses of outer space is vital if we are to preserve the stability, safety and sustainability of space for present and future generations.
  • The risks and dangers that geopolitical tensions and crisis, and the ever-increasing threats to the peaceful uses of space can have for all of us.
  • How space law can be used to avert or minimise those threats and what must be done for this to happen.

Ranjana and Kai-Uwe, both leading experts in space law, will also provide their ‘one word’ to describe the wonders of space/space law – a tradition for all guests at the Space Café Law Breakfasts, and help to demystify the sometimes complex and contradictory vested interests involved in space activities and industry. We hope that you will enjoy this discussion and will join us on 19 May at 9.30 am CEST. There are so many more issues to discuss. Please come along with your favourite breakfast treat and any questions that you might want us to analyse. We really hope you will join us for breakfast! See you then!

#SpaceWatchGL Opinion: What is the real annual generated revenue of the space industry? PART 1

Being part of a growing economy is where you want to be these days. And Space promises to be among one of the fastest growing sectors, with huge spillover potential into other industries. Currently, the space economy has been estimated to be at around 386 billion USD in revenue, and expectations predict it to be at 1 trillion USD by 2040. The outlook is attractive and moving within the space sector one could have the impression of booming space businesses. But are those numbers legitimate?
