Over bagels, croissants, coffee and other treats, we will discuss many legal issues arising from everyday space activities.

Ruvimbo and Antonino, 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.
