With space tourism and law it is a typical situation. Every time somebody develops a vision and plans to make it feasible, it is just a question of time until lawyers show up to complicate the situation. It is inherent to law, that it is lacking behind innovations in some respect. Complex undertakings require a legal framework to manage its complexity. Space tourism promises to become a multi-billion-dollar-business, and it is certainly a challenge to create or arrange a legal environment for this undertaking. This short paper tries to touch on some of the essential topics regarding space tourism under the viewpoint of public international law.
