Buzz Lightyear to Space Command. Come in Space Command.

Defective Yeti has a great faux headline about the seedy underbelly of life as an astronaut. But as amusing as it is, it made me stop and think for a second. What laws apply to the inhabitants of the international space station? Would space be a continuation of the admiralty law? When the first crime is committed in space, who would make the arrest? Lawyer friends/family, please enlighten me.

I move we start a Jedi Academy now, before it’s too late and lawless runs amuck in the atmosphere.
