Recognizing space as the final frontier;
Admiring the spirit of exploration and curiosity that drives us to boldly go where none have gone before;
Believing international cooperation is only way to truly develop space science research, and;
Seeking to remedy the significant shortcomings of preceding attempts,
The World Assembly establishes the International Aero-Space Administration (IASA), and empowers it with the following mandate:
To coordinate and publish public research in the field of space exploration, aerospace science and engineering, and other disciplines related to the pursuit of space science;
To liaise with the WA Scientific Programme and coordinate the release of non-classified research and development within the disciplines of aerospace research and space exploration;
To further liaise with the International Meteorological Organisation (IMO) on coordination and safety issues involved with terrestrial space launches;
To provide on request both technical assistance and advisors for developing and building civilian space programs within member states by sharing technical, organizational, and administrative data with those programs to keep fledgling space programs safe and effective.
To research and disseminate best management practices regarding space exploration and research safety;
To act as an intermediary, upon request, for international cooperation on joint space programs.
Member states must liaise with IASA, the IMO, and parallel national authorities governing airspace in foreign territory so as to coordinate flight plans to avoid conflict, collision, or other unintended risk to other spacecraft. Where reasonably practical, member states will so liaise for all nonmilitary spacecraft launched from their suborbital space which might cross into either international or foreign national airspace or territory;
Member states are strongly encouraged to share their research with both other member states and IASA, for the betterment of all scientific development;
The World Assembly renounces any direct authority over domestic space programs or their operations, and reserves them entirely to their respective national jurisdictions.
