1967: The Outer Space Treaty, signed on Jan. 27, 1967, by more than 60 nations, comes into force. The treaty represents the basic legal framework of international space law. Among its principles, it bars treaty signers from placing nuclear weapons or any other weapons of mass destruction in orbit of Earth, installing them on the moon or any other celestial body, or to otherwise station them in outer space. The treaty also explicitly forbids any government from claiming a celestial resource such as the moon or a planet, claiming that they are the common heritage of mankind.
