The Convention on International Liability for Damage Caused by Space Object3 covers only the damage caused to third parties and objects in space. A parallel to the Warsaw Convention of 1929 which regulates the liability of air carriers for injury to transported passengers, luggage and goods, and also for delay in delivery, has not been established in space law. Until now there was no need for such a Convention. With the development of the transportation of goods in space, however, legal rules governing this liability will become desirable, if not necessary.
