About this book

Against the variegated background of bewilderment and cautious optimism that space transportation offers, this book begins with an exposé on international politics, the principles of which, bear upon space transportation, as well as the closeness of air space and outer space, and activities that straddle both frontiers at the same time. It discusses current issues and possibilities of communications and transportation in outer space, as well as the liabilities and accountability of the key players of space exploration.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book is set out in nine chapters, runs to 122 pages and has a further 40-page appendix usefully setting out the relevant space treaties. The author covers a range of topics from security of global navigation systems, to space tourism and insurance. … The reader does not necessarily need to be a lawyer, nor know anything about space law to enjoy this book.” (Darcy Beamer-Downie, Aerospace, November, 2014)
