Ultimate Control of All Satellites to the United Nations

Ultimate Control of All Satellites to the United Nations

Petition Text

Pass a law saying that the United Nations has the right to inspect, control and or disable any earth or moon satellite.

Why is this important?

A 2014 Gallup International survey found that, by a wide margin, people believe that the United States is the biggest threat to wold peace. It's hard to believe that these people want the US controlling their skies. A 1967 international agreement signed by all the major powers banned weapons from earth orbit. Several major powers (including the USA) have violated that ban. When one space faring nation explodes a competitor's satellite, each of thousands of high velocity pieces can destroy other "innocent" satellites for decades. Our planet must avoid an arms race in space.
