[Nettime-bold] Buying Lunar Property (Land On The Moon)

There was an article in the Houston Chronicle last week (Wednesday or Thursday) about an organization called the Lunar Republic, based in New York, that was started by a group of former NASA employees and contractors and several "moon interest groups" with the aim of setting up an independent "government" for the moon.

They reportedly have nearly 250,000 citizen partners already signed up and expect to top a million by the end of 2002. Their Web site is at

I don't think this group is involved with the same guy from Southern California who claimed ownership of the entire solar system except earth a few years ago and was selling off 1000-acre ranches. Lunar Republic is selling property, but investing the profits back into commercial space industry and groups like the Artimis Project and the Moon Society, etc.
