Can a Billonaire buy the moon? It forbids any government to claim it. But can a person buy it?

As far as I know, the only flag hoisted on the moon so far from Earth by human beings is the U.S. flag, right?

So my question is, what happens when NASA's little missile hits all this uranium in a few months?
A loophole in Space Law allows individuals and companies to hold Mineral Rights on the Moon, Mars and other celestial bodies. Growing concern from Scientists that these rights may be held hostage have been alleviated by a three man North American team; Dr. Joseph Resnick, Dr. Timothy R. O'Neill and Guy Cramer (ROC-Resnick/O'Neill/Cramer team) who have acquired the mineral rights for 95% of the side of the moon that faces Earth, the polar regions and 50% of the far side of the moon.
"Space law does not allow countries to have land ownership on planets and moons in the solar system but it does allow for the Mineral Rights to be obtained by individuals and companies."
