A state on whose registry an object launched into outer space is carried retains jurisdiction and control over it and over any of its personnel while in outer space or on a celestial body1. Ownership of such objects is not affected by their presence in those places or by their return to earth, and, if found beyond the limits of the state of registration, they must be returned to that state2.
