Dennis Hope claims to own the moon and has made $10million (Ksh10billion) from selling plots to people since 1980. Hope says he took advantage of a loophole in the 1967 UN Outer Space treaty that said no country could own the moon, but which said nothing about individuals. He then divided the moon into plots and sold/sells each plot for Ksh2000, or Ksh2500 for those that want rights to own minerals. At one time he sold a 2.6million-acre land (approximately the size of Kenya's central region) for Ksh25million.
Dennis Hope Dennis Hope continue to make millions of money through selling land on the moon. Over the years, he has sold acres of real estate on the moon as he believes it's his to sell. In 1980, Dennis realized that the United Nations treaty of 1967 on putter space said that no country could own the moon but it never said anything about individuals owing the land.
There are real estate sales people and then there are people who take real estate sales out of this world. It sounds crazy but it's true. Dennis Hope has managed to sell pieces of moon's land to a number of super rich celebrities and is now a millionaire. How did he do it? It all started in 1980 when Mr. Hope realised a loophole in the United Nations outer space treaty which says that no country can claim ownership of the moon. The treaty seems not to restrict individuals from claiming ownership of the moon,
