This issue’s on-line preview articles are by three awardees of research scholarships from the National Center for Remote Sensing, Air, and Space Law of the University of Mississippi School of Law. Mr. Nicholas D. Welly applies the ideas of 2009 Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences, Elinor Ostrom, regarding economic governance of a commons to space, a legal global commons in his article, Enlightened State-Interest—A Legal Framework for Protecting the “Common Interest of All Mankind” from Hardinian Tragedy (pdf). Mr. Paul Ordyna, considers an activity with virtually no track record—commercial human spaceflight— in light of practices employed by a centuries-old industry by closely examining track records in his article, Insuring Human Space Flight: An Underwriter’s Dilemma (pdf). Also considering the application of new ideas to old problems is Mr. Surya Gunasekara’s article, The March of Science: Fourth Amendment Implications on Remote Sensing in Criminal Law (pdf)
