Space law is an area of the law that encompasses national and international law governing activities in outer space. The inception of the field of space law began with the launch in October 1957 of the world first artificial satellite, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic Sputnik. Since then, space law has evolved and assumed more importance as humankind has increasingly come to use and rely on space-based resources.

The International Institute of Space Law (IISL) was founded in 1960. The purposes and objectives of the Institute include the cooperation with appropriate internation... More →

Mining or remediation operations should be in full compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements to ensure that value-added regulations are always being leveraged.

The best way to accomplish this is to ...

1. Integrate an improvement cycle with your safety and health management system (including CORESafety).

2. Apply the Plan-Do-Check-Act process to each regulation.

The CORESafety Module 16 explains why each requirement should have someone responsible for ensuring the requirements have been met and are working as designed on an ongoing basis... More →

Space travel as the bloggers know it is plagued by a few problems, most of which boil down to striking a balance between speed and time. The faster one travels, the more energy one needs. Without gravitational assists, that means more fuel will be required, and that has to be carried somehow. Faster speeds, required to reach long distances in a reasonable timeframe, also mean more difficulty slowing down.

So far, New Horizons is the fastest spacecraft ever in terms of launch velocity. Its launch speed was about 58,000 km per hr. After a flyby of Jupiter, New Horizons picked up a gra... More →

Derek Ezovski blogs that he works with lenders and borrowers nationwide and historically, environmental due diligence consisted of Phase I ESAs for most transactions/loans and Transaction Screen Assessments (TSAs) for lower risk transactions/loans. However, over the past 10 or so years, for many reasons including new SBA guidance documents, higher levels of risk tolerance and the development of new lower level environmental screening tools (Records Search with Risk Assessment, Desktop Reviews, ORMS EnviroFlash reports), he has seen more variations of environmental due diligence being used.

The 4th Planet goal is to create and test various habitats from naturally occurring terrestrial lava tubes analogous to the Moon and Mars. The advantage of this approach is that it reduces the amount of construction materials required to be placed in orbit and then relocated on a lunar and or martian surface.

Currently, 4th Planet Logistics objective is an evaluation of the practicality of pressurizing terrestrial lava tubes directly by creating atmospheric barriers that utilize the lava tube naturally occurring regime as a primary or secondary structural shell. This approach will... More →

David Jacobson reports that a new study by researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Nevada Seismological Laboratory, and USGS has revealed that the Newport-Inglewood/Rose Canyon fault zone, which extends offshore from San Diego to Los Angeles, is capable of rupturing in M=7.3+ earthquakes. Such a quake could cause significant damage to some of the most densely populated areas in California.

The Newport...Inglewood...Rose Canyon fault zone is a strike-slip system in Southern California, and is part of the Pacific-North American plate boundary. Prior to this study, ... More →

Kevin Johnson reports that near the end of the recent House committee hearing in which FBI Director James Comey dealt a double-barreled blow to the White House, acknowledging the existence of a wide-ranging counter-intelligence investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the director also made a less-noticed but striking concession about Russia unprecedented cyber assault on the American political system.

It took 10 months, Comey said, from the time the FBI first notified the Democratic National Committee of Russia intrusion in 2015 before the bureau was provided a... More →

Claudia Wagner, et al., report that with the increasing importance of online social networks such as Twitter or Facebook, a new breed of computer programs, so-called social bots, emerged.

Social bots are automatic or semi-automatic computer programs that mimic humans and or human behavior in online social networks. Social bots can attack users in online social networks to pursue a variety of latent goals, such as to spread information or to influence targets. Without a deep understanding of the nature of such attacks or the susceptibility of users, the potential of social media as ... More →
