Astronauts from the Canadian Space Agency have been warned they will face
the ramifications of breaking the law when they touch down on Earth

Canadian Astronauts have been warned they will be met with handcuffs when they touch down back on Earth should they commit any crimes on the surface of the Moon.

New legislation has been introduced by Canada’s government as part of the 2022 federal budget and recently presented to the House of Commons.

Buried deep within the document were new laws relating to space flight.

And while several science fiction films show outer space to be a bastion of lawlessness, it will not apply to Canadians leaving the Earth’s atmosphere.

It reads: “A Canadian crew member who, during a space flight, commits an act or omission outside Canada that if committed in Canada would constitute an indictable offence is deemed to have committed that act or omission in Canada, if that act or omission is committed on…a flight element of the Lunar Gateway…or on the surface of the Moon.”
