Pakistani Man “Buys Land On Moon” To Build House For His Wife As A Wedding Gift

Pakistani man has surprised everyone with his unique and unconventional choice of wedding gift for his wife.

Sohaib Ahmed from Rawalpindi decided to move beyond the conventions of gifting jewelry, cars and other things. Hence, he decided to gift her a piece of land. On the MOON.

Ahmed has reportedly bought one-acre lunar land in the region called ‘Sea of Vapour’ for his wife as a wedding gift. The land was bought at a cost of $45 from the International Lunar Lands Registry.

According to the LSI, a human-based settlement is essential to permanently inhabit on Luna. This will help for a land claim to have legal recognition and certification.

As per the statement on the LSI website, “The location and population of the settlement may change, as long as there continues to be an inhabited settlement.

This settlement may include temporary shelters and structures; movable vehicles or assemblies. It may also include permanent facilities for research, mining, construction or human habitation; tourist accommodations; and/or strategic emplacements.”

Ahmed said he wanted to do something different and hence bought a piece of lunar land after he heard that the late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput had bought a ‘piece of moon’ in 2018.

Rajput reportedly bought the land in a region called Mare Muscoviense, or the ‘Sea of Muscovy’.

Several celebrities including Tom Cruise and Shah Rukh Khan reportedly ‘own land on the moon’.

In a video that has been shared on social media


platforms, the couple is seen telling a reporter from a local news channel how their friends had a hard time believing that they actually bought the land.

He also shows the papers he received. Sohaib’s wife Mediha told a local news channel that now one of her friends also wants her fiancé to gift her a plot of land on the moon for their wedding.

The couple received the documents at their home via US Postal Service.

This is not the first time people have shown documents and claimed to have bought a piece of the moon, in past many other people have made same claims.

But let’s do a bit of fact-checking. Can land on the moon be actually bought? If yes, can anyone purchase it?

But a look at the Outer Space Treaty immediately negates any such claims made by people or institutions as one can’t actually buy property on the moon, according to the treaty.

Buying land on the moon is illegal as per the 1967 Outer Space Treaty and it has been signed by 109 nations.

As per the Treaty, “outer space is not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means.”

So, the question arises, how are these people from earth buying pieces of land?! The catch is a loophole in the Treaty which has been used to counter the rules in the treaty.

The language in the Treaty is specific to national ownership and as a result there has been no no legal consensus on whether or not the prohibition extends to private companies or individuals.

Facebook ranks last in digital trust among consumers

Summary List Placement

When it comes to protecting users’ personal information and providing a safe online environment, social network users in the US give lower marks to Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter. According to Insider Intelligence’s annual “US Digital Trust Survey,” LinkedIn is the most trusted social platform overall. We define digital trust as the confidence users have in a social media platform to protect their information and provide a safe environment for them to create and engage with content.

In the 2020 “US Digital Trust Survey,” we evaluated consumer perceptions of the major social networks within five categories of trust: security, legitimacy, community, ad experience, and ad relevance*. We ranked nine platforms—Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, reddit, Snapchat, TikTok, Twitter, and YouTube—according to how our respondents perceived them along those five pillars of digital trust. We fielded the online survey of 1,865 US respondents ages 18 to 74 between May 28, 2020 and June 3, 2020, using a sample provided by a third party.

We found that Facebook was the least trusted social media platform regarding data privacy. Nearly one-third (32%) of US Facebook users at least somewhat disagreed that they had confidence in the platform to protect their data and privacy. Just 10% of LinkedIn’s users said the same of the professional network.How Much Do US Social Media Users Agree That Social Media Platforms Protect Their Privacy and Data

“Two years after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, we expect that Facebook’s massive data privacy issues during that time have persisted in public memory and continue to be a black mark on its record,” said Audrey Schomer, senior research analyst at Insider Intelligence. “This is likely driving nearly one-third of US Facebook users to continue to view Facebook as a platform that doesn’t adequately protect their data. Our research highlights the great importance of data privacy protections by social networks to ensure that user engagement data isn’t mishandled or misappropriated.” 

A majority (53%) of US Facebook users at least somewhat agreed that the platform protects their data and privacy, but this was the lowest share of respondents among all platforms we measured. 

“To Facebook’s credit, it has made efforts to give users more control over their data through opt-in and opt-out features tied to what data is shared and what ads they’re shown, as well as by increasing its own transparency into what data is collected,” said Daniel Carnahan, research analyst at Insider Intelligence. “Nevertheless, it appears that these efforts are still having only minimal effects on US user sentiment.”

TikTok and Twitter were the next-to-worst performers when it came to confidence in their user data and privacy handling. About one in five US TikTok and Twitter users (22% and 21%, respectively) at least somewhat lacked confidence in the platforms to protect their data and privacy. While majority shares of the two platforms’ respective users felt confident that their data and privacy was being protected, they were still less confident compared with users of other platforms. For TikTok, intensifying scrutiny from the US government has likely had a negative impact on some users’ confidence in the app. When our survey was conducted, many US legislators were voicing their concerns about TikTok’s connections to the Chinese government. As for Twitter, it had already come under fire in 2019 for sharing some users’ data with advertisers without their permission. It also fixed a bug that accidentally collected and shared user location data.

LinkedIn and Pinterest ranked highest when it came to confidence in their ability to provide security. Nearly three-quarters (73%) of LinkedIn users and 66% of Pinterest users at least somewhat agreed that the respective platforms protect their privacy and data. LinkedIn and Pinterest have each received very little media attention related to data privacy issues, which likely contributes to their more positive perceptions among users.

What the Results Mean

Digital trust is important for brands and advertisers to consider because US social users say it impacts whether they will interact with the ads they see on social platforms. Even if security scandals don’t drive users to stop using social platforms, our data indicates that the trust users have—or don’t have—in social platforms could impact their interactions with ads or sponsored content. In fact, 79% of respondents said whether a platform protects their privacy and data was either extremely or very impactful when it comes to their decision to engage with ads. And 30% of respondents said that whether a platform shows them relevant ads had an extremely or very high impact.
