ABA Air and Space Law Forum June 8

I am looking forward to the American Bar Association’s Space Law Symposium this Thursday, June 8, 2017, at the University Club in Washington, D.C.  The Symposium will be all day, and at 2:30 I will be on a panel called Mars, the Moon, and the Legal and Policy Implications of Human Space Exploration.  I will talk about the FAA’s human space flight requirements, pose a question about planetary protection in the context of human settlement, and maybe stray into the issues surrounding authorization and supervision of U.S. persons in outer space.
