What is allowed in outer space and what is not, is regulated in the Outer Space Treaty of 1967. The treaty states that outer space belongs to all of us and that all states have the right to explore it. All activities are to be carried out peacefully and for the benefit of all mankind.

  • Tim Ruster, Science YouTuber, Astro-Comics TV
