>>>If you don’t know Dennis Hope, you should. He claims to own that luminous object that orbits our Earth and graces the night sky in all its various phases.

That’s right, Hope has laid claim to the moon. How? The 65-year-old from Nevada wrote the United Nations a letter in the 1980s saying the moon was his and challenging them to establish a legal reason as to why not. Hope says he never got a response. The loophole Hope believes he found in the 1967 U.N. Outer Space Treaty that says no country can claim ownership of the moon is that he’s not a country — he’s an individual.

“Owning the moon is very interesting. It’s a tremendous burden, in some respects, to keep everybody happy,” Hope said in the interview. “I know I have detractors. I know I have people who’ve said ‘you can’t do this.’”

“I’ve always looked at myself as a pioneer,” he continued later in the video. “I’ve always thought differently. I think outside the box, actually now I’m thinking outside the planet.”<<<

More power to him - if he can get people to believe it....

His effort sounds about as worthless as having your own star.

Don't you need to travel there and plant a flag in order to lay claim to a new land?
