    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.

    If America is going to claim the moon we Australia will take the sun

    So stop getting free sun tans, send all your solar power to us

    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?
