Abstract

Korea now has a rapidly expanding space programme with exploration aspirations. The government is giving priority to the aerospace industry and, to put it on a better footing, enacted an Aerospace Industry Development Promotion Act in I987, a Space Development Promotion Act in 2005 and a new Space Damage Compensation Act in 2007. I would like describe briefly the legislative history, main contents and comment for these three space acts including especially launch licensing, registration of space objects, use of satellite information, astronaut rescue, liability for compensation, third party liability insurance, financial support for the aerospace industry and establishment of committee and plans to assist the Korean space effort. It is indeed a great necessary for us to establish an Asian Space Agency (ASA) for strengthening cooperation within the Asian space community towards joint undertakings. (The rest omitted)
