How is this possible?
In 1980, an American called Dennis M Hope had the bright idea of laying claim to land on the moon and forming the 'Lunar Embassy'. Under the 'Outer Space Treaty' of 1967, it was decreed that no country could lay claim to the moon, but they forgot to say that no human being could do so!
Although several attempts have been made to change the space treaty, none have been successful and Mr Hope has won several challenges in court. He filed his claim for the land with the United States Government, the then Government of Russia and most importantly, with the United Nations General Assembly.
How much does it cost to own one acre of land on the moon and what do I receive?
Lunar Deed, which confirms your registration of one acre of the moon and gives you the co-ordinates of your plot. Lunar Map so you can see where, on the lit side of the moon, your property is located. The Lunar Constitution and Bill of Rights - as drawn up by Dennis M Hope. A transcript of the Declaration of Ownership. This is the document filed with the governments of the USA and Russia (then the USSR) along with the United Nations General Assembly in 1980 in which Dennis M Hope first laid claim to the moon. Documents confirming you have the mineral rights to your land.
