Abstract

Abstract This article reviews the history of commercial space insurance and describes the relevant legal framework. It then describes the types of transactions that take place and analyses four categories of insurance: pre-launch, launch, in-orbit and re-entry. The recent difficulties of the space insurance industry are described, and the author offers several suggestions for the future.
