U.S. Code Title 51

We donít have the long-promised flying cars, and we canít ďbeamĒ ourselves anywhere, but we do have U.S. Code Title 51 - National and Commercial Space Programs. This new title contains legislation that accumulated in other titles of the Code as the national and commercial space programs evolved over the last 50 years.

Topic covered include: access to space, Earth observations, biomedical research, near-Earth objects, exploration initiatives, space commerce, and reusable in-space transportation. You can learn more about Title 51 from the Law Revision Counselís page.

Title 51... Area 51...hmmm.
