After reading the article and doing a bit of research here is what can be stated:
PT Barnum once stated: There is one born every minute.
And in this case, it is very true on such, as there is a treaty that has been agreed on and ultimately, would require the sign off on every signatory
country around the world to be legal in all aspect.
The actual language is very specific and ultimately, as this person did not get the agreement of all 101 signatories of the governments that signed
the original treaty, he can sell what he wants, but the people who purchase such are no more entitled to such than anyone for that matter.
The treaty provides the framework for international space law, and it bars the placement of nuclear weapons, or any other weapons of mass destruction
in orbit around the earth, on the moon or any other celestial body, or otherwise station them in outer pace. It also exclusively limits the use of
the moon and other celestial bodies to peaceful purposes only, and prohibits the use of testing weapons or conducting military maneuvers, or
establishing military installations and fortifications on such. More importantly it forbids the claiming of any celestial resource, such as the moon
or a planet, claiming that they are the common heritage of mankind.
Further to make matters even more so, and this guy and any who would lay legal claim to any celestial body, legally responsible for any and all damage
caused by said object. So if the man decides to claim all of Mars and a meteor strikes and does damage to the earth, originating from Mars, then he
is legally liable for any and all damage from that planet.
Kind of makes you think, do you really want to own a piece of a celestial body?
