Designing space legislation

The new Australian space agency headed by Dr Megan Clark is a great step forward and will go a long way in enabling a vibrant space industry.

One bit of challenge is:

Revising Australia’s Space Activities Act

The agency is currently in the process of reviewing the country’s Space Activities Act, which came into effect in 1998.

SAID CLARK, THE TECHNOLOGY’S CHANGED, AND WE DON’T WANT TO INHIBIT INNOVATION. REALLY, THINGS HAVE CHANGED FUNDAMENTALLY — THE COST, THE ENTRY, THE MECHANISMS, THE ORBITS, HAVE ALL CHANGED, AND SO WE NEED TO UPGRADE OUR FRAMEWORKS AND OUR LEGISLATION.

How might we use design principles to have a point of view, understand, innovate, prototype ans validate the new legislation?
