Luna Society (India) is pleased to announce that a select, premium tract of property on the Moon has been designated for sale exclusively to citizens and residents of India.
The property is designated as “Storms Raman A,” and is located in the east-central section of the Oceanus Procellarum (Ocean of Storms).
Its name is derived from its proximity to the Crater Raman, which honors the Indian physicist and Nobel laureate Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, F.R.S., Kt., B.R. (1888-1970). This year commemorates the 130th anniversary of his birth in Thiruvanaikaval, Tiruchirappalli, India. In addition, India celebrates National Science Day on 28 February of every year to commemorate the discovery of the Raman effect in 1928, which gave further proof of the quantum nature of light.
Also located nearby in this unique Lunar region are the major Crater Aristarchus (40 km diameter) and the magnificent Vallis Schröteri (Schröter’s Valley), the largest sinuous valley on the Moon, and the only formation of this type that can be viewed from Earth with a small telescope. The craters Herodotus (35 km) and Schiaparelli (24 km) flank the tract to the east and west, respectively.
At issuance, 8,800 hectares of land were included in the original tract, equivalent to 88 square kilometers (km²) or 21,745 acres. A private reserve offering was made through the International Lunar Lands Registry prior to public sale, which resulted in 16,800 acres being claimed. The remaining 4,945 acres (about 2000 hectares) are included in the current claim offering to the public.
Single acres are offered currently at ₹515 (INR), or about US$8 at current market exchange rates. Pricing is discounted on purchases of multiple acres in a single transaction.
