Freedom of access to all areas of celestial bodies for scientific research purposes is guaranteed by paragraph 3. The clarifying term 'including the Moon and other celestial bodies' has been employed throughout the Treaty. Two reasons can be suggested: despite the Moon also being a celestial body, it was mentioned separately because it is nearest the Earth, and it was the first objective of space flights and also the preparation for such flights were already under way. 2. Article II This Article embodies a cardinal principle of space law by declaring that outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies, is not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means.

This is due to the decisive role of the United Nations in creating space law right from the beginning: it was generally recognized, after the excitement of the Sputnik flight in 1957 had died down, that international cooperation was absolutely essential if uncontrolled activities and chaotic developments were to be avoided. This realization resulted in 1959 in the Committee for the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNCOPUOS) being set up by the UN General Assembly.

This stems from the fact that research and development, and the launching of space objects and their operational costs, require resourcing on such a scale that the task could only be undertaken by states or government-backed organizations, which explains the emergence of legal norms agreed upon and sanctioned on an international level.
