Random information on the term “Seize”:

Seisin (or seizin) denotes the legal possession of a feudal fiefdom or fee, that is to say an estate in land. It was used in the form of “the son and heir of X has obtained seisin of his inheritance”, and thus is effectively a term concerned with conveyancing in the feudal era. The person holding such estate is said to be “seized of it”, a phrase which commonly appears in inquisitions post mortem (i.e. “The jurors find that X died seized of the manor of …”). The monarch alone “owned” all the land of England by his allodial right and all his subjects were merely his tenants under various contracts of feudal tenure.

Seisin comes from Middle English saysen, seysen, in the legal sense of to put in possession of, or to take possession of, hence, to grasp, to seize. The Old French variations seisir, saisir, are from Low Latin sacire, generally referred to the same source as Gothic satjan, Old English settan, to put in place, set.

Seisin is believed to have been applicable only to freehold tenures, that is to say a tenure for a term of life, which was heritable, on condition of payment of the appropriate feudal relief to the overlord. A “freeman” was a man who held by freehold tenure, and thus freehold tenure was anciently said to be the only form of feudal land tenure worthy to be held by a free man. Tenure, and the variety thereof, was the very essence of feudal society and the stratification thereof, and the possession of a tenure (i.e., holding, from Latin teneo “to hold”) was legally established by the act of seisin.

The Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) was established by the International Council for Science (ICSU) in 1958.

Among COSPAR’s objectives are the promotion of scientific research in space on an international level, with emphasis on the free exchange of results, information, and opinions, and providing a forum, open to all scientists, for the discussion of problems that may affect space research. These objectives are achieved through the organization of symposia, publication, and other means.COSPAR has created a number of research programmes on different topics, a few in cooperation with other scientific Unions. The long-term project COSPAR international reference atmosphere started in 1960; since then it has produced several editions of the high-atmosphere code CIRA. The code “IRI” of the URSI-COSPAR working group on the International Reference Ionosphere was first edited in 1978 and is yearly updated.

Every second year, COSPAR calls for a General Assembly (also called Scientific Assembly). These are conferences currently gathering more than a thousand participating space researchers. The most recent assemblies are listed in the table below. The 41st General Assembly in Istanbul was cancelled due to the 2016 Turkish coup d’état attempt.
