Into uncharted territory: as New Zealand's space industry takes off, can we create laws that allow it to grow while keeping it in check?

From as early as 2010, Dr Maria A Pozza has been advocating for New Zealand to implement its own space law framework. Now, the laws have been made as a new industry has blossomed – but as with Uber and Airbnb, regulation can sometimes struggle to keep up with technology and make rules for what we can’t predict. Here, Pozza discusses how the law can be tweaked and improved.
