Outer Space Treaty Signed

The Outer Space Treaty represents the basic legal framework of international space law. It bans the stationing of weapons of mass destruction in outer space, exclusively limits the use of the Moon and other celestial bodies to peaceful purposes, holds countries responsible for any damage caused by the objects they launch, and forbids any government from claiming a celestial body, such as the Moon or a planet. The Moon Treaty was approved 12 years later but was considered a failure. Why? More...

The Moon Treaty of 1979 was meant to be the follow-up to the Outer Space Treaty, but failed to be ratified by any major space-faring nation such as those capable of orbital spaceflight, so it was considered a failure.

Taking into account recent efforts to start commercial space exploration, I think these treaties will have to undergo certain revisions in the nearest future.

The man in the moon didn't sign it. To hell with the moon treaty, I just want to know if the Klingons signed the Outer Space Treaty. I'm out of my Vulcan mind with fear! Whistle

Because they've failed all they started, it's just a hideout and worth not a farthing.

Excellent point! The awareness has to be awakened among the majority of people for any positive changes to occur... Once people start thinking positively, there is going to be less and less hypocrisy and less fear of the big bullies on top...

This soon will become a real issue. To this point, only one nation has landed a person on the moon, and at that only to hop around, play golf, collect rocks and try to detect moonquakes. Now, several countries are initiating serious efforts to go to the moon and, perhaps, set up permanent stations there. If exploration turns up anything of value, you can be sure the treaty terms ensuring all nations equal access will be sorely tested.

Ya, and if you believe that this treaty will be honored you really are not, "playing-with-a-full-deck..."

So you have brought up the treaty regarding outer space; why would it ever be honored as we have not honored the treaty regarding human rights and the ban on torture, have we? Bush & Cheney walk free but did authorize torture, so why would there be anything different?
