Businessman from Jammu, Rupesh Masson, buys land on the moon following Chandrayaan-3's successful landing.

Close on the heels Chandrayaan-3’s successful landing on the Moon on August 23, a businessman and educationist from Jammu, Rupesh Masson (49), bought land on moon on August 25.

Masson, who is the regional director of UCMAS for Jammu and Kashmir and Leh, says he has bought land at “Luna Earths Moon, Tract 55-Parcel 10772 known as Lacus Felicitatis (Lake of Happiness).”

“I purchased the land from The Lunar Registry at New York City and it was certified on August 25,” said Masson.

“Ideas of occupying space on the moon are a reflection of our quest to see what lies beyond, which is itself a reflection of our quest for deeper meaning within ourselves,” he added.

He feels that a plot on the moon is either a token of hope in a future that or a cost-effective psychological escape hatch for the person confronting climate change.

“By forming a tangible connection with a different future, this kind of purchase is satisfying a need for some sense of some degree of preparedness for a different future,” he said.

He said that around 675 celebrities and three former presidents of the United States had extra-terrestrial land holdings.
