Join the Tech Policy Lab for a discussion on “Law in the Fourth Domain: Governing the Second Half Century of Outer Space Activities” with Brian Israel.
In light of the 50th anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty, what advancements have we made in the past half century? How is our relationship with outer space likely to evolve in the coming decades, from scientific exploration, to resource consumption, to future residence? How will legal and governance frameworks evolve in parallel with these changes?
Brian Israel is General Counsel to Planetary Resources, an asteroid mining company. Prior to joining Planetary Resources, he served at the State Department as the U.S. Representative to the Legal Subcommittee of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space.
