Description: This Treaty reaffirms and expands on many of the provisions of the Outer Space Treaty.
It provides that the Moon and other celestial bodies should be used exclusively for peaceful purposes and that their environments should not be disrupted. It requires states parties to notify the United Nations of the location and purpose of any station established on those bodies. The Moon Treaty also calls for the establishment of an international regime to govern the exploitation of the moon and other bodies, when such exploitation is about to become feasible.
The treaty is available in six official languages in PDF and HTML format.
