One of the facts about the United States Code that you may or may not remember from your legal research class is that it has 50 titles. That’s a fact that’s been repeated to law students for 83 years. Well, not anymore. Late last year Congress enacted a law creating Title 51, “National and Commercial Space Programs.” Recently the Journal of Space Law published an issue dealing with this historic change that provides a good history of this new title and the U.S. Code. Now that the U.S. Code has moved beyond 50 titles I think it’s safe to say we’ll see additional titles in the future.
