Plots for Sale on The Moon

If you want to write a song about the heart
Think about the moon before you start

-Paul Simon

We remember our childhood days, when our mothers would call the moon in her lullabies to soothe us into falling asleep, but there is an enterprenaur in Hyderabad who has decided to live in the moon itself, and has bought a plot recently.

According to Rediff and Siasat News:

An entrepreneur in Hyderabad seems over the moon.

He has bought a five-acre lunar plot and has the legal deed to endorse the claim though how he plans to live there is still not clear.

“If it is not possible [to live on the moon] during my life time, may be in the next generation,” says Rajeev V Bagdi, who bought the plot of land on the moon through an Internet transaction for $ 140.

Last year Reuters published that the hotel named “Galactic Suite“, the first hotel planned in space, expects to open for business in 2012 and would allow guests to travel around the world in 80 minutes.

Some of the architectural design of this hotel:

Its Barcelona-based architects say the space hotel will be the most expensive in the galaxy, costing $4 million for a three-day stay.

During that time guests would see the sun rise 15 times a day and use Velcro suits to crawl around their pod rooms by sticking themselves to the walls like Spiderman.

the three-bedroom boutique hotel’s joined-up pod structure, which makes it look like a model of molecules, was dictated by the fact that each pod room had to fit inside a rocket to be taken into space.

The bathrooms in zero gravity that are the biggest challenge and how to accommodate the more intimate activities of the guests is not easy.

But they may have solved the issue of how to take a shower in weightlessness — the guests will enter a spa room in which bubbles of water will float around.

When guests are not admiring the view from their portholes they will take part in scientific experiments on space travel.

    With so much online fraud, I doubt if the lunar plot that this man bought is authentic.

    The Galactic Suite seems pretty interesting, and I would definitely love to experience being in outer space, but $ 4 million for three-day stay?! *faints*

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
