Limiting Outer Space propels the historicization of outer space by focusing on the Post-Apollo period. After the moon landings, disillusionment set in. Outer space, no longer considered the inevitable destination of human expansion, lost much of its popular appeal, cultural significance and political urgency. With the rapid waning of the worldwide Apollo frenzy, the optimism of the Space Age gave way to an era of space fatigue and planetized limits. Bringing together the history of European astroculture and American-Soviet spaceflight with scholarship on the 1970s, this cutting-edge volume examines the reconfiguration of space imaginaries from a multiplicity of disciplinary perspectives. Rather than invoking oft-repeated narratives of Cold War rivalry and an escalating Space Race, Limiting Outer Space breaks new ground by exploring a hitherto underrated and understudied decade, the Post-Apollo period.

This original book offers guidelines for the transition from the existing outer space regime, geared to space activities deployed exclusively by States, to a regime which also governs the commercial use of outer space resources by States as well as by non-governmental enterprise. The author meets the challenge of drafting new rules applicable to human activities in the still largely unknown environment of outer space by presenting the reader with a provocative review of the principles of space law as they were established in the sixties, culminating in the Space Treaty of 1967, followed by his own vision of the principles on which the future legal framework of outer space should be based. Written in the author's characteristic style, the book cannot fail to intrigue all those who are interested in space activities. Henri A. Wassenbergh is Professor of Law at Leiden University & Chairman of the Institute of Air & Space Law. He was Head of the KLM Foreign Relations Bureau for many years & has published extensively on Air & Space Law topics throughout a long & distinguished academic career.
