Taikonaut talks space law

CNN and other news outlets have picked up a Reuters story, apparently via China News Service, covering Yang Liwei, China's first person in space (you remember his historic mission back in 2003), telling "an audience of university students over the weekend," that China is drafting new space laws to "address how to 'effectively protect the space environment, reduce or eradicate fragments in space and expand international cooperation.'"

This should be interesting. Looking forward to details.

(Of course, new space law aside, for nations worried about the space environment and those pesky "fragments," not blowing up old weather satellites in orbit might be a good way to start.)
