The Next Big Real-Estate Investment Opportunity: Outer Space

Anyway, that's what Wired claims -- and, hooray, it turns out the U.S. never ratified the Moon treaty that sought to make that body something of an international park. Neither did Russia or China -- and until a real-life Duchy of Grand Fenwick shows up, those are all the spacefaring countries that really count.

So, you can dream of saving up for that hard-vacuum retirement home.

The bad news? If Musk, Branson, Bezos et al don't get a move on, you may need to learn Mandarin to read the loan agreement.

No, they left, driven to seek a new world after their side got trounced in WW II. All but died off on Linden (Lyndon), later. Serves 'em right.

Which just means I need to go back and re-read the history... :)
