Europe's Constitution in Space
01 April 2005Via Satellite
In January 2003, the European Commission issued a consultation green paper to initiate new discussions on Europe’s activities in space. It looks as if the European Union (EU) may finally define its space policy throughout the course of this year, with ramifications for the satellite industry. But the long-term effort depends on ratification of a new EU constitution, which in turn will depend on national referenda in certain EU member states.
