Chapter Summary

On October 4, 1957, the day that the launch of Sputnik by the Soviet Union opened the Space Age, Eilene Marie Galloway was a national defense expert for the United States Congress. In 1928, Eilene received a bachelor's degree Phi Beta Kappa in Political Science from Swarthmore and became an instructor at the college while George continued to work in Philadelphia. Eilene retired from Congressional Research Service (CRS) in 1975, but remained vigorously involved in space law and policy for the next 34 years. In addition to serving on many advisory committees and in official positions for the International Institute of Space Law (IISL) and International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), she also continued to consult for Congress. In 1982, she gave a paper at the 25th Colloquium on the Law of Outer Space in Paris, France in which she argued for expanding Article IV of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty.
