Well, they are now taking the preliminary steps, at least.

This may be old news to some, but Google has been sponsoring a competition to visit the moon.

Yes, you read that bold and underlined part correctly. They are offering 30 million dollars in prizes to the first private teams which build a rocket and send a roboticly-manned vehicle to the moon and travel for 500 meters or more, while sending high-def footage; additional prizes given to a team that travels for 5 kilometers or more.

Registrations closed late last year, with 29 qualified entrants.

This is one of the first moves, I believe, toward privatization of space and spacetravel, which will be an important step in the future energy economy of earth, with vast potential being discussed in space-based solar harvesting fields.

I hope they also visit the darkside, as we all know the fables about what is over there  wink

I saw this on tv the other day, but there's some guy who sells plots of land on the moon.  lots of celebrities and such own part of the moon.

i think the guy's company is called Lunar Embassy. 

Apparently no one claimed the moon, so no one really owns it.  This guy just had the bright idea if claiming and selling it.  He's been in business for like 20+ years.  Pretty funny.

I'm claiming it too, and I'll sell you a plot for $400. But my estates on Mercury are going for $200,000+. Get em while they're hot. Liquid fire hot.
