Did Neil Armstrong claim it for us?
I know the answer.
Lets see if you do....:-)
I totally own it bud so back off. I just let Neil go up and check it out to make sure there wasn't anyone on my turf.
Interesting topic. Until relatively recently, the U.S. was the only nation capable of moon missions, but things have changed. In the past few years, Japan, India and China have launched moon missions to explore and evaluate it, to what end?
The Chinese research includes looking for H3 deposits. H3 would be used to power lunar fusion reactors which in turn would allow for permanent lunar settlements.
So in 1967 everyone agreed to "share" the moon i.e. to prevent the U.S. from claiming it. Now, things are different.
My guess is that actual moon ownership will be determined by generals instead of lawyers, and possession will probably be 9 points of the law.
Treaties are broken on earth all the time, why would the moon be different?

...god?...wait...it's not sunday...
...no one 'owns' it....
The same dude that owns the sunrise and sunset.
And I have no friggin' idea who that is.
...ok...what's your answer....i could go into some speil on what defines 'ownership' and whatever...i'll leave that for someone else...
To give the answer would be premature.
I would like this "thread" to continue.
I will eventually give the answer.
There IS a definite answer.
okay...i'll wait patiently...........................................................
There is a definite answer. No one.
It was here before we arrived and will still be here when we are gone. Everything is temporary. No one can "Own" the Moon, the Sun, the Stars, the Earth or anything else in space. What we believe we own on earth is temporary as well and more often than not, meaningless. Are the American Indians the only people who understood this?
I have heard that you can actually buy acreage in the moon. The person who decided to sell deeds to moon claims has actually made enough money that I wondered if it could happen that I started selling deeds to Mars! It is a very weird thing but I have seen shows about how the guy did this and that it might be possible that the deeds would have to be respected
"Who "owns" the moon?"
I do. I won it from this guy in Vegas last week…
Would you be interested in buying the Brooklyn bridge?
I bought that years ago… I’ve been leasing it to Al Gore ever since.
I had this teacher who used to tell me I could sell her the Brooklyn Bridge all the time! She was my typing teacher and word processing teacher and strangely was one of the funniest teachers I had. When my friend Monty and I figured out why half the computers in the room where not working for a mail merge (two commands needed swapping and it worked) she told us we need not worry about our grades and once bought one of my self published Zines for $20 and would not take her change! Suggested price of $3 but whatever you felt it was worth was my pricing structure
Some fanatic said he bought a piece of land for a movie star and gave him the documents.The star said if he ever built a house there he would let others know.
No.Seriously,it was in the news.
We all own the moon: The 1967 Outer Space Treaty states that the Moon and all outer space is the 'province of all mankind'.
I hate to argue, but wouldn't Neil Armstrong have said that in view of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty?
There's some guy in Nevada named Hope who claimed ownership of the Moon with the UN and has made a good chunk of change selling deeds to property there.
Interesting question and this would probably make a good hub. I think that many entities would like to claim ownership of the moon but just as it happened here in the US, those that eventually colonize the moon will claim ownership.
Personally, I think its going to be all those oppressed millionaires and billionaires that claim they're being taxed too heavily that will leave this world and colonize the moon and start their own New World Order. They'll all become trillionaires too because the Moon's soil is rich with Helium-3, a clean renewable energy source which we will definitely need here on Earth at some point.
My best guess....Nike...we ran out of American assets in the 90s...so...our massive loans are probably being backed by moon property. America can't pay...so...therefore...the moon will be re-possessed and turned into massive sweat shop real estate.
Someday....we will look up and see a big ass Nike check mark on the moon.
I am certain that, when the resources become important, whatever you have that "proves" who owns it will go bye-bye, and the country/alliance with the most aggressive, offensive satellite and spacecraft program will be the ones actually harvesting the stuff up there. Our species has been going after resources in that fashion since before we actually were the species we currently are.
Evidently only nice guys .... oh ... wait, that's mankind, not kind man ... ooops.
My husband bought it last year in a top secret deal (not a word to anyone, please). We'll be going there for our annual holiday next summer.
I think this is where you can buy your patch of the moon
Seriously can I sell off chunks of the surface of Mars?
I'm guessing if you can homestead 160 acres for at least 5 years, that plot will be yours!
Hey guys, thanks for the inspiration I made a hub about this! I think it is actually a really interesting subject - that I had never thought about before and seeing as I was bored of writing lots of product hubs I made this, and maybe it will even make a few cents! I included a link back to the forum!
I own it I have the paperwork right in front of me, and for a very small price, say 59.95 I will subdivide it into equal parcels of one acre each, thereby allowing plenty of room for profit when you decide to sell.
Like all spoils it will go to the victors. Anyone who sets up a working trasport system there and back will control it and so to all intents and purposes - own it. The Chinese are pushing ahead with their space missions it says in the paper here, my guess is that the first 'base' will be Chinese - and they can afford to do it and keep it I would think.

Is it possible to own the moon? And, if so, who owns it?With the International Space Station used by multiple nations, if mankind were to ever establish a colony on the moon, who would be in charge? Would the moon belong to all of mankind? Or, are humans too naturally drawn into war and land...
