Event description
This is SpaceWatch.Global's new space law series where global space law experts discuss the legal issues from everyday space activities.

About this event

Space Café "Law Breakfast with Steven Freeland" will analyse current space developments with a legal focus. It will, at the same time discuss and ‘demystify’ the law for everyone.

In our next Space Café “Law Breakfast with Steven Freeland”, Host Steven Freeland, Emeritus Professor of International Law at Western Sydney University, Sydney and Professorial Fellow at Bond University, Australia, and Co-Host Torsten Kriening, SpaceWatch.Global’s Publisher, welcome Gérardine Goh Escolar and Guoyu Wang at the wonderful and cosy Café in Singapore.

Over bagels, croissants, coffee and other treats, we will discuss many legal issues arising from everyday space activities, including the following:

  • How do we deal with the ever-increasing collision risks that seem to arise by virtue of space debris but also the exponential growth in the number of space objects being launched into space?
  • Should national regulators be more ‘globally’ focused and perhaps less parochial when determining applications by those under their jurisdictions to launch large constellations of small satellites into ‘popular’ orbit?
  • As AI becomes more prevalent in the design and functioning of space activities, how will the existing legal structures cope with incidents that involve space objects where there is minimal (or even no) ‘human in the loop’ involvement?
  • And so much more...

Gérardine and Guoyu, 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.

We hope that you will enjoy this discussion and will join us on 27 January at 9.30 am CET. There are so many more issues to discuss. Please come along with your favourite breakfast treat and any questions that you might want us to analyse.

We really hope you will join us for breakfast! See you then!
