Space Law

NASA this week brought into focus such heady concepts as space, time, crime, and for us... space-crime. Astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria broke America's record for the most time spent walking in space, and astronaut Lisa Nowak was charged with attempted murder and kidnapping following her apparent love triangle meltdown. After these events, the obvious question is, what if it had all happened in space? Glenn Reynolds, is a professor who teaches space law at the University of Tennessee. We asked Reynolds what laws govern the outer edges of the universe.
