  •  If there actually were such a thing as (0+ / 0-)

    "international law", you'd have a point.

    There isn't.

    You don't.

    •  but there is such a thing (0+ / 0-)

      And the fact you and Ellison think there isn't doesn't mean that Russia, PRC, India, South Africa, Brazil, France, etc. accept your waving off 50 years of negotiations (largely stymied by the US, to be sure) around international governance of space.

      So, there is international law, or a least the perception there is and should be, and ignoring that doesn't make it go away.

      You are just flat wrong. Here is a suggestion: Why don't you write to the State Department or Space Command and ask them whether or not they think international law exists and whether or not some apply to space activities.

      They won't take your view, I assure you.
