    Your subject line wandered off and an imposter took its place.

    So Big Bad Uncle Sam said please return any moon material (rocks / dust) but equipment keep as momentoes no problem

    But Trump is not going claim real-estate up there

    Mind you I would love to see him do that. Make it one of ten last acts in office (in about 6½ years time)

    Along with auctioning off all the crashed UFOs

    Pardoning and granting citizenship to all the true aliens (of the space type)

    The USA is signatory to a UN convention that explicitly prohibits any country from taking ownership of the Moon.

    I have edited the thread title. There is no "official" claim on the Moon from the government of the United States.

    It is fair enough if the government funds an expensive mission to the Moon that results in a few moon rocks being brought back to Earth by astronauts, that the rocks are then the property of the government, not the astronauts.

    The rest of the opening post is a beat up.

    The linked article is not about the US government claiming ownership of the moon.

    Have fun getting sued by Dracula, he's got a lot of money and a lot of legal influence.

    Probably a moot point but what about countries NOT signatory or withdraw as per Paris agreement?

    In a point of time: there is an object as big as the lunar eclipse still seen as a construct or an opposite image seen from space spanning over centuries until orbit is achieved: and still there are other objects seen - the countless centuries of opposite spin and the leaders of many countries still dependent upon a heating earth when mainly only the tides can cool it down as in gravitational and opposite spin cool and anti-thermal spin. The ownership of this tech not counting hydroelectricity still puts into perspective great country spin and base but by exponential growth and potential there still is moon shine to ensure light upon a natural orbit and countries may be on the contrary. A more steady solution is the natural repudiation of steady facts when that is de facto and light upon the situation of a true democracy and/or monarchy to ensure the ownership of a moon or any other satellite features.

    I have a challenge for you. Write a single sentence that conveys a coherent thought.

    Like this:
    The sunrise was quite beautiful this morning.

    You can do this! Show the forum you can do it!!!

    The Y-donor built Cadillacs. He never owned one. The astronauts were doing a job, bringing back samples for study. They never had a legal claim to those rocks.
