The ‘common heritage of mankind’ (Legal Concept) principle within international law provides for a general framework of universal responsibility of sustained legal and environmental protection. It establishes a close link of space law to the law governing other areas beyond national jurisdiction, such as the high seas, the deep seafloor, and some might even argue Antarctica.
