Political Committee: How can the governments prevent the creation of an unjust system of outer space control?
It’s been over sixty years since dreams of exploring outer space began to come true. The first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, was launched in October of 1957. With everything that followed, the Space Race, first human spaceflight, the Moon landing, we can with no doubt state, that we live in the age of cosmos inspection. All the fantasies about leaving the Earth to discover the world beyond our planet are now available for fulfillment. Although, what we must focus on, is how to keep the space cooperation available and fair for everyone?
The topic of space cooperation began with the merged mission of American-Soviet Apollo-Soyuz mission, containing astronauts from both countries organizations. The Space Race was officially over, but outer space partnership was to begin. Initially, only two lands, USSR and USA, were taking part in galaxy programs, but, as the technology improved, over sixty more countries created their own Space Organizations, therefore joining the forces of space cooperation.
Now, more than ever, we need to focus on unity and righteousness. As we proceed to enter the depths of cosmos, we mustn’t allow injustice to follow. The peace on earth should spread on its orbit and outside of it as well. After achieving a dream of conquering space, we must create another fantasy: an idea of orbital collaboration that would be safe and non-discriminating for all, making the outer space an equal territory.
The world isn’t going to help you, dear delegates. The all-powerful desire to rule over the weak and if it weren’t for you, there is no one to stop them. I won’t give you clear directions or obvious choices and despite the difficulty of the given topic, I believe in you and your ideas.
My name is Maciej Cymbrykiewicz, chair of the Political Committee, and I’d like to welcome you to PUSZMUN 2019. I honestly can’t wait to meet you all and watch, as we, together, help the universe.
As the quote from one extremely popular movie franchise where space plays an important role says: “May the force be with you”.
