An advancement in space technology promises more excitement and enthusiasm for the explorer to exploit the outer space. And 21st century promises an irresistible offer to tourist to visit the outer space. An introduction to space tourism by International Space Station (‘ISS’) indirectly affected the application of law of outer space particularly in term of definition of space tourist, liability and non-appropriation of outer space. This article attempts to identify the lacuna of outer space law in governing the space tourism. From the critical analysis which has been done by the writer, the writer concluded that the current outer space law has lacuna in its application to space tourism. Therefore, the writer proposes a new international treaty or agreement to govern the space tourism.
