However, with more and more space activiti es taking place on a daily basis, along with the trend of commercialization, sev ere challenges have set on the continual application of the Convention. Conseque ntly, a new round of serious review of the Convention is indispensable after mor e than 30 years of its existence. The Convention with possible revision would of fer a clear guideline for decision-makers to decide cases in a rational way bes t suited to the development of space operations.
