Hide / Show Abstract

In October 1957, the first man-made satellite was launched into outer space and the people of the world witnessed the beginning of a new era — the space age. The following year, an item dealing with the peaceful uses of outer space was for the first time placed on the agenda of the General Assembly, at its thirteenth regular session. At the same session, the Assembly established the Ad Hoc Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, which, one year later, became a permanent body.
