Domino’s Aiming for Moon to Sell Pizza

The Japanese affiliate of Domino’s Pizza announced Thursday that it plans to build a restaurant on the moon, one it’s targeting at astronauts. Employees would need to live inside of the restaurant’s 28-yard-wide dome, which the company said it planned to use elements from the moon’s surface to make concrete for.

It’d take 15 rockets to send the construction parts and ingredients, and the whole job comes with a $21.7 billion price tag.

“We anticipate there will be many people living on the moon—astronauts who are working there and, in the future, citizens of the moon,” Tomohide Matsunaga, a spokesman for Domino’s Japan, told The Daily Telegraph. “We started thinking about this project last year, although we have not yet determined when the restaurant might open.”

Pizza Hut took some grub into space 10 years ago, when it sent an order to the staff of the International Space Station.
