You’ve probably heard of the iconic romantic song, “The Moon Represents My Heart”. Instead of professing to love his beau to the moon and back, a man recently set a benchmark for all the hopeless romantics out there.
Sohaib Ahmed, 23, bought a land on the lunar surface and gifted it to his wife as a symbol of his love. He achieved his bucket list after purchasing a one-acre plot from the Lunar Settlement Initiative (LSI).
The man from Pakistan had acquired the land for his wife, Madiha, as their wedding gift. It was reported that Ahmed bought the land from LSI in the region called “Sea of Vapours” for only US$45 (RM186).
The couple also hold the property documents that was sent to their home via the US Postal Service. “At first, everyone thought it was a joke, but then I showed them the documents and then they believed it,” explained Madiha.
According to Daily Times, Ahmed said in a programme that he was inspired by late actor Sushant Singh Raput, who had owned a land on the moon in the “Sea of Muscovy” region. It was reported that the actor bought his land from the same organisation, LSI.
Apparently, a lot of well-known celebrities also own a land on the lunar surface, including Tom Cruise, Shah Rukh Khan, and John Travolta.
