Meteoric Matters

Meteors are often used in legal literature as devices to describe an incredibly rare or unlikely event. The Perseid meteor shower, by contrast, is an annually spectacular show and is at its peak right now. Perseid meteors appear as the earth passes through the debris of the Swift-Tuttle comet  As you look up to enjoy the display (provided cloud cover dissipates), here's a quick roundup of law review articles that look at legal issues beyond the planet's borders.

Astronaut Scott Kelly posted this amazing photo of the Perseid meteor shower from space last August.
