I gave a lecture at the Cambridge Festival of Ideas in October 2015 on the topic “Who Owns Outer Space?” This is the lecture for which I was honoured to win the prestigious Margaret Mead Award Lecture from the British Science Association in 2015. The podcast is now available.
As governments and corporations continue to venture beyond our own planet, how do we decide who owns space? Jill Stuart draws on her extensive research into outer space politics, explaining our existing laws, where they’ve come from and how politics on Earth affects what happens in the cosmos. Presented with the British Science Association.
