Can you commit a crime on the moon and if you can who prosecutes you for said crime?
I figure it's like international waters.
International law is universal as far as I'm concerned. Human rights violations should get you arrested but whoever takes you in should give you back to your home country so they can clean up their own mess.
But the moon isn't a nation can you apply international law to an interstellar crime?
Until another multinational group posted acceptable rules on space the UN will have to do.
No jurisdiction. No crime.
I believe there was already a suit or other legal action filed against an astronaut once and the judge threw it out immediately citing "lack of jurisdiction".
Whichever country paid for you to go up there, so USA or Russia most likely
Whoa. Good question.
American law: we were there first.
So I a Russian astronaut shoots another Russian astronaut on the moon and then comes back home to Russia they have to be expedited to America for trial?
