This article provides an overview of space law, a relatively new and evolving field that governs the legal aspects of activities related to outer space. It explores the interdisciplinary nature of space law, encompassing international law, aviation law, intellectual property law, and environmental law. The article highlights the historical development of space law since the launch of Sputnik 1 in the late 1950s and discusses the need for a legal framework to govern space activities as humanity ventures beyond Earth. It examines the principles, treaties, and agreements that form the foundation of space law, with a focus on the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS) and the Outer Space Treaty of 1967. The article delves into diverse perspectives within space law, including national security, commercial interests, environmental concerns, and global cooperation. It analyzes the challenges faced by space law, such as the balance between commercial interests and the common heritage of mankind, the threat of space debris, and the need for updated regulations in response to emerging technologies and activities. The article concludes by discussing potential areas for improvement, including the revision of international treaties, the establishment of a comprehensive international treaty for space activities, and the development of mechanisms for enforcement and dispute resolution.
