On This Day… The Outer Space Treaty!

Written by: George Chittenden : 30 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 27th January, back in 1967 when countries began signing the Outer Space Treaty. The treaty forms the basis of international space law and governs the activities of individual countries in the exploration and use of outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies.

Among its principles, it bans countries from placing weapons of mass destruction in orbit of Earth, installing them on the Moon or any other celestial body, or otherwise positioning them in outer space.
