Karl Urban talks to Daniel Porras who works in Geneva in Switzerland as a researcher at the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research. Daniel published a paper in 2006. It is called The Common Heritage of Outer Space: Equal Benefits for most of Mankind. But more recently he is more and more involved with the severity of current space diplomacy.
