Question / Comments Answer
C. Clear transparency is a hot topic these days.
So it's important for almost everyone to show
their attitudes exactly.
A. Yes! transparency is becoming more important not only in the field of outer space activities but also in other field! I am glad that you got that from your own background/major which is not necessarily space law ;-).
Q. I wonder, when the North Korea launched
the rocket or missile, the neighbor countries
worried about it, but when other worries launched missile
the neighbor countries didn't worry like North Korea. Why?
A. Thank you very much for your question. There are several reasons. One of them is the fact that North Korea withdrew from the NPT(The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons) and they lack transparency in outer space activities.

Question / Comments Answer
C. Expanding the range and variation of security,
cyberthreat is coming to be recognized
as a problem of national security.
So, I think any aspects not only on space law
but also others like IR are coming together these days.
A. Thank you for your comment and sharing your thoughts on pressing security issues. Cyberthreat is directly related to the computer-based social frastructure and still we need to consider how to prevent it from threatening our daily life ;-) as well as national security!
