Domino's plans to sell Pizza on Moon
This space publicity war was started by Dominos rival company Pizza Hut when they delivered pizza to the astronauts of the International Space Station (ISS) in 2001. But, setting a restaurant on moon is way ahead of ‘just’ supplying pizza to the ISS.
Cost of the restaurant
According to company’s estimates, the project will cost around £13.4 billion. Out of this amount, about £4.5 billion will be used to transport about 70 tons of construction material and equipment required for Pizza making. All this stuff will be carried by 15 rockets to the Moon.
Dominos said that apart from carrying material to the Moon, they will also use the local resources, like mineral deposits to make concrete, which will cost them around £1.5 billion.
Other fascinating ideas from Domino's
This is not the first time Dominos had planned or done such an activity. Last year, on 25th anniversary of its entry in Japan, Dominos paid a person £20,046 or Y2.5 million for one hour pizza delivery work.
A construction firm Maeda Corp. is helping Dominos in building its restaurant beyond the stratosphere. Maeda Corp. is planning to build a two storyed dome-shaped restaurant on Moon’s surface. The restaurant will have a diameter of 26 meter and in its basement, pizzas will be prepared on an area made of steel planting. The accommodation of the staff will also be arranged on the premises.
However, Domino's said that they first thought about this project about a year ago but they are not sure when they will open their restaurant.
A spokesperson of Domino's, Tomohide Matsunaga said, “We started thinking about this project last year, although we have not yet determined when the restaurant might open. In the future, we anticipate there will be many people living on the moon, astronauts who are working there and, in the future, citizens of the moon.”
