Topic Summary: Developing Space Exploration Laws

Space exploration takes place for many purposes such as human entertainment and scientific research. Since space tourism raises a huge amount of money to aerospace companies, space exploration is a major income source that cannot be easily taken away. Moreover, space exploration is needed in order to develop human activities and improve scientific research. From this, it can be said that space exploration plays a vital role in the current society. However, due to the lack of current space exploration laws, there are arousing problems in which clarification has not been done about who is responsible for which space actions. Also, the environment in space has not been protected firmly, and the sustainability of space exploration is not to be guaranteed. 

The goal of this committee is to implement new laws and develop past laws in order to guarantee the sustainability of space exploration.

Director’s Letter

Hello and welcome to JMMUN 2022! My name is Yuumi Inai, and I am very excited to be your director of The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) for JMMUN this year. I was born in Nagasaki, and I have lived in Indonesia for three years while in elementary school. I am currently a second-year student attending Senzoku Gakuen Senior High School in Kanagawa, living in Tokyo.
I have been participating in Model United Nations since junior high school, and this is my fourth year being part of JMMUN. I am also the president of the Senzoku Gakuen MUN club for this year. I am also planning to participate in BERMUN as a delegate in November.
The topic “space exploration” may be a difficult one since it is not familiar to most of us, but I believe that the fact that the topic is unfamiliar is what makes researching much more fun, gaining lots of completely new knowledge as you research further. At JMMUN 2022, I hope that delegates will be able to gain skills that cannot be gained from any other occasions, and that that skill will help you develop in the future. I will be excited to hear your creative solutions considering space exploration laws at the two-day conference.
Sincerely,

Yuumi
