The Hill is reporting that two Representatives (Donna Edwards, D-MD, and Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-TX) are proposing the establishment of a National Park on the moon.
Yes, the moon.
Clearly, they’re unfamiliar with the Outer Space Treaty, which forbids a government from claiming any land upon the moon (undoubtedly, this is why they’re Representatives, not Senators–treaties are ratified by the Senate, not the House). Even without that, though, there’s an important practical issue:
How are we going to get a park ranger out there?
