You’ve probably heard of the famous romantic Chinese song, “The Moon Represents My Heart”. Instead of professing to love his sweetheart to the moon and back, a man has set a benchmark for all the love birds out there.
Sohaib Ahmed, a resident of Rawalpindi, reportedly bought the lunar land in the region called ‘Sea of Vapour’ for $45 from the International Lunar Lands Registry.
The couple were sent the documents of the land on the moon at their home via US Postal Service.
It is unclear how he intends to go to the moon with his wife to live in the new property.
According to the Lunar Settlement Initiative’s website, “under the terms of the LSI, property claims on Luna may be offered to private entities to finance the exploration, settlement, and development of the Moon and its resources.”
It further states that “upon the recognition and certification of land claims, property owners shall be entitled to inhabit and develop their property in any manner, subject to any laws or statutes that may be established by the sovereign and independent government of Luna, which shall be freely elected by its citizens.”
Ahmed said that he was inspired by late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput to buy his own piece of land on the moon. In 2018. Sushant reportedly bought a piece of land in the region of Mare Muscoviense, or the ‘Sea of Muscovy’ through the International Lunar Lands Registry.
