Prohibition of the stationing of weapons and prevention of an arms race in outer space

The launching of the first man-made satellite into outer space in 1957 marked the beginning of the space age. The following year, the General Assembly decided to include an item in its agenda dealing with the peaceful uses of outer space. Subsequently, the Assembly established the Ad Hoc Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, which in 1959 became a permanent body.
