Previously the exclusive domain of science-fiction novels, the sale of extraterrestrial real estate has nowadays become a favourite feature of tabloid reports. This article critically analyses and dismantles with legal arguments the issue of the sale of extraterrestrial land, after having outlined some of the trivial claims of ownership of celestial bodies. From Dennis Hope’s lunar claim to the alleged
Martian trespass by NASA’s Pathfinder, the only consequence these claims have on the legal plane is to highlight the need for better regulation of extraterrestrial landed property rights.
