Celebrating the Space Age
50 Years of Space Technology, 40 Years of the Outer Space Treaty - Conference Report, 2–3 April 2007
This conference report contains the contributions made to a 2007 conference on space technology and the Outer Space Treaty. The main issues discussed were the history of space diplomacy and possible future developments, the status and challenges to space security, and the creation of an environment promoting space security through creative thinking and confidence-building measures. The challenge identified by the authors is to preserve both the security of space objects and the unrestricted access to outer space by all nations.
