Who cleans up the junk in outer space? What kinds of law apply in exploring the great unknown? And is there a need for space traffic management?
These are just some of the issues Singapore can add its voice to once its application to join the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (Copuos) is approved. The committee was set up in 1959 to govern the exploration and use of space "for the benefit of all humanity: for peace, security and development".
