Space Junk and International Law: Legal issues surrounding space debris
The Society’s Government Attorneys Interest Group invites you to join us at Tillar House for an interactive discussion of the legal and practical issues posed by humankind’s increasing activities in outer space. The speakers will provide an entertaining and informative overview of some of the practical problems and legal issues posed by space debris, focusing on topics such as what space debris is, how and why it’s created, the legal issues it raises, and the steps governments and other stakeholders can take to remediate the problem. Special attention will be given to the fact that space debris exist outside of traditional national jurisdictions and what the international legal regime can offer in addressing this issue.
Michael Listner - Realpolitik and Space Law - Cold Star Project S02E41
Founder & Principal at Space Law & Policy Solutions Michael Listner is on the Cold Star Project. He's also author and editor of The Precis, a space law quarterly briefing letter. Our subject of discussion is Realpolitik and space law, and I ask Michael about: - where he finds himself most often with another interpretation, either conceptually or with the letter of the law, with other space lawyers - what clients are seeking when they approach his firm - what he believes is at issue regarding the White House's April 6th Executive Order regarding space resources--Michael called it "posturing for the space resources food fight and a pushback against the [Hauge] Building Blocks" - the standout issues of space law from his perspective, with regard to commercial operations - whether international safeguards exist or not to avoid war, as nation states move to use space resources and occupy space locations - who are some key people Michael follows in the space field.

The Future of Air Travel – Can Aviation Laws Keep Up? | Jenny A. Urban | TEDxUniversityofMississippi
Get through airport security faster or check a bag with the tap of your fingers or a scan of your eyes? Experience artificial intelligence inflight? These technologies are crafting the future of aviation, but how does that impact current regulations both within the U.S and abroad? Innovation in air travel allows for a better customer experience and frictionless process; however, regulations must be updated to ensure aviation security. Aviation attorney Jenny Urban will explain why private-public partnerships, information sharing, and international collaboration are the key to revising the aviation regulatory sphere to incorporate technical advancements in this globally connected industry. A graduate of the Air & Space Law program at The University of Mississippi School of Law, Jenny A. Urban specializes in aviation law. Her work as an attorney has her on forefront of the constantly evolving law in air and space law. She is an expert aviation regulatory compliance, aviation financing and leasing, and regulatory issues related to unmanned aircraft systems. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
Air Law & Space Law: spatial delimitation between airspace & outer space | Dr Gbenga Oduntan
THINK KENT – INTERNATIONAL THINKERS | GLOBAL IMPACT There is no universally agreed precise legal, technical or political definition of either the boundaries separating airspace from outer space or of the term ‘outer space’ itself. Yet two separate legal regimes exist for the regulation of these two environments. Whilst states have complete and exclusive sovereignty of their airspace, there can be no exercise of sovereignty in outer space other than jurisdiction over space flight vehicles and objects such as space stations. In this lecture, Dr Gbenga Oduntan, Senior Lecturer in International Commercial Law at the University of Kent, critiques the leading theories that have been postulated to solve this problem, and proposes an original solution regarding the spatial demarcation boundary point issue in air and space law. ► SEARCH for a course at the University of Kent: http://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=OduntanSearch&utm_campaign=ThinkKent1516 ► Research at Kent: https://www.kent.ac.uk/research/?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=OduntanResearch&utm_campaign=ThinkKent1516 ► SUBSCRIBE for more Think Kent lectures: http://www.youtube.com/user/UniversityofKent?sub_confirmation=1 ABOUT DR GBENGA ODUNTAN Dr Oduntan is Senior Lecturer in International Commercial Law at Kent Law School.
