Event Description:  On Tuesday, 10 October, the British Interplanetary Society is holding a symposium to mark the 50th anniversary of the UN Outer Space Treaty. At the time, in 1967, space activities were carried out by nations. Now, 50 years later, individual companies, such as SpaceX, Blue Origin and Orbital Sciences are running their own projects, and companies have announced plans for flights to the Moon and Mars. In addition, back in the 1970s there were plans for large-scale space habitats that could be home to thousands of people. It’s assumed the primary sources of materials would be the Moon and asteroids. How might such activities be restricted by the provisions of the treaty? “50 Years of the UN Space Treaty: Looking Back, Looking Forward” is a 1-day symposium looking at the limitations imposed by the UN treaty and how it might be updated in light of new developments in space exploration. The event will be held in London at The BIS Headquarters. Full details can be found at, which also has a link to the registration page. Remaining places are limited and should be booked without delay. Door open at 9am, with the event running from 9:45 am to 5:30 pm.
