Hi Patrick! I've had to move this topic to Space Law due to unrelated content. Thanks for understanding!

Yes. Instead of addressing the issue, why don't you just move the topic? Great. Really appreciated... *eyes rolling*

This entire site is suffering from avoidance syndrome.

Sort of an old topic, but I figured I'd reply, just in case someone stumbled upon this topic and took it at face value.

The OST article you are quoting refers to natural satellites and planets. If it included artificial constructs (for instance a space station) it would also apply to satellites and something as "simple" as a GPS satellite would violate these rules. The nearest simile, for purposes of space law, is manned capsules and the ISS (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_law#1998_ISS_agreement), these are considered under the jurisdiction of the owning nation, much like a ship in international waters would be.

Much in the same way, a craft in orbit around Earth could be subject to national law. Whether or not this craft could be considered sovereign territory, is an entirely other matter, mostly unrelated to the OST, however.

Desde hace mucho tiempo, los Estados Unidos de América ("y los otros") tienen una serie de restricciones planetarias y espaciales(ciencia, energía, tecnología, medicina, etc.), en contubernio con sus agencias principales y empresas (NASA, ONU, OMS, tec.) Con la finalidad de mantener a la casta terrestre en la desinformación y la ignorancia de la verdad que ocurre en el planeta y fuera del planeta, ademas de la tecnología que posee realmente, por lo que creo firmemente que debe de replantearse completamente la visión, la ciencia, la filosofía, etc., por y para el Gobierno Asgardiano, caso contrario seguirá el continuismo del gobierno planetario en Asgardia.
