Research Paper Checkpoint: Research Question and Thesis Statement
What kind of impact did the space law treaties have with international relations, development of future explorations and treaties that would blossom to counteract.
Landing on the moon was always a far away future utopia for technology until 1920 when the space race was prompted. The space race began when to super powers were at war with each other during the Cold war. This prompted nations to create a treaty which would be based on international space laws. As of 2019, 109 countries have signed the treaty and have maintained this agreement . This would impact future explorations because it limits countries just to explore celestial bodies rather than settle and claim it for a certain state. Future treaties that would sprout were clearly created to keep these bodies for only peaceful purposes; so this meant that no nuclear would be permitted in space. These treaties would influence the future of space forever.
