Welcome to Out of this World! We operate under The Lunar Embassy, which is the only company in the world with a legal basis for selling claims to land on the Moon and Mars. We are their Authorised Reseller for Australia and New Zealand. More on The Lunar Embassy (including info on their original land claims sent to the UN) is further below.
All purchases of claims to land on the Moon and Mars are registered in The Lunar Embassy’s international database and will receive a certificate of title in three parts, as pictured to the right. The grey “Lunar” ones on the top are for land on the Moon while the pink “Martian” ones below them are for land on Mars. To make a purchase please click here. For more information on the Moon and Mars land which we sell claims to, please refer to the corresponding links above.
I would also like to introduce myself: Hursh Saha, operator of this business. I was raised in New Zealand and currently live in Auckland.
THE STORY OF THE LUNAR EMBASSY
The United Nations Outer Space Treaty of 1967 states that no government or nation can own extra-terrestrial property – or that on other planets. However, it neglected to mention that individuals and corporations could not own it. In November 1980, upon spotting this loophole, Dr. Dennis M. Hope (from America) made a Declaration of Ownership of the seven other planets in our solar system along with all their moons and Pluto. He sent it to the United Nations and the American and Russian governments. Then he established “The Lunar Embassy” to sell claims to the land under. Since then it has grown and grown with millions of owners of extra-terrestrial real estate claims, including many famous people and celebrities. Effectively, this has added hugely to their initial claims to these lands because now they are widely recognised and supported by millions.
Think about property here on earth. Who is to say that someone owns that apart from the fact that it is registered on a database that is widely recognised? A lot of lands on this planet have, in fact, been stolen off original inhabitants instead of being formerly claimed and, while this is acknowledged in an historical context, it makes little difference today because the rest of the world has moved on and the land itself has been subdivided and sold many times over – again adding more registrations to a database that is widely recognised by the current population. This is how many products and investments work. It is not always based on what is actually there. Instead, it is based on how it is perceived. Think about how a car’s value suddenly changes when a certain brand name is placed on it even if nothing else has changed. Think about how its value changes when a famous person drives it or owns it. In short, perception is reality and this principle applies to virtually all aspects of our everyday lives.
However, the Moon Treaty of 1984 does not allow individuals and corporations to claim the Moon or space for their own interests but, out of all the UN members, only six states ratified it and none of them were major space-faring nations. Therefore, it is not as recognised as The Outer Space Treaty of 1967.

The Outer Space Treaty (1967) states that the Moon and other celestial bodies are for the heritage of all mankind when it comes to exploration. Therefore, others have the right to land on or traverse across your claimed property (without being charged for it) as long as they are exploring.
When you look closely at the certificates of title you will see the words “This is a novel gift” towards the bottom left. This term is defined in the American Heritage Dictionary as “the quality of being novel”, “something new and unusual” and “a small mass produced article”. At the advice of Dr. Hope’s legal representative, it was suggested to use the phrase “novelty gift” to avoid lawsuits.
While the above story on The Lunar Embassy is arguable, I (Hursh Saha) would like to say that this product (regarding the claims to the land along with the possession and development of it) is not 100% guaranteed as there are limits, such as to how well The Lunar Embassy does in the future. However, a plain and simple truth of life is that nothing – nothing – is 100% guaranteed. Technically, not even the sun rising tomorrow is 100% guaranteed. It really is something to always remember.
