International Space Law For Expansion Of Space Debris And Ionization Effects

  • Mr. Jitendra Yadav, Dr. Atibha Vijaya Singh


There has been a resurgence of interest in environmental issues. A first move towards environmental protection was taken by UN agencies in the 1970s. Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPOUS) and its legal sub-committee of the United Nations have been active in holding conferences to discuss and adopt new guidelines for space operations. An international law can be defined as a body of law made up of the principles and codes of conduct that governments feel obligated to follow and consequently follow when they interact. As a result of Space Debris in the Ocean, aquatic animals, plants, and the eco-system are adversely affected. This is due to the tidal currents in the water which distribute the radioactive material. As a result, we can't declare that the space debris floating in the ocean is harmless. In addition to companies and other non-governmental entities, the International Law of Outer Space has an impact on their space activities. A major purpose for satellites is telecommunications, navigation and remote sensing Earth resources. They are also employed in measurement and metrology.
