Two youths from Satkhira – S.M. Shahin Alom and Sk. Shakil Hosen, acquaintance as ‘friends’ – have claimed that they recently bought an acre of land on the moon with only $55 from ‘Lunar Embassy’ of Dennis Hope, a US citizen who sold lands on the moon. They also claimed that they received the documents of the land on Wednesday in which the moon map also mentioned where their land is.
S.M. Shahin Alom of Patakhali village of Satkhira’s Shyamnagar Upazila and Sk. Shakil Hosen of Zordiya village of Satkhira Sadar upazila bought the land from Dennis Hope’s organization where three US Presidents – George W. Bush, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan – also bought land on the moon earlier.
About this, S.M. Shahin Alom said from the former US Presidents to many famous stars of neighboring India have bought land on the moon. “We will have land on the moon” — from that perceptive, we started looking and completed all the process.
“We are very excited to be able to buy a piece of land on the moon,” said Sk. Shakil Hosen, adding that they are the first Bangladeshis to buy lands on the moon.
Dennis Hope’s ‘Lunar Embassy’ is the most popular company to buy land on the moon. According to them, the price of land on the moon ranges from $24.99 to a maximum of $499 per acre – which is about Tk 2125 to Tk 42,437.
It is learned that after purchasing the land, the company also sends the buyer a sale agreement, a satellite image of the purchased land and legal documents such as the geographical location of the land and if someone is willing to spend a little more, they also provided with a complete map of the moon and other information.
