Shooting for the Moon in Dubai's Skyline
In a city where the skyline competes with the stars, why not bring the moon a little closer to home? Canadian entrepreneur Michael Henderson seems to think so. He's proposing a $5 billion real estate project that would crown Dubai's skyscrapers with a 274-meter (900-foot) replica of the moon. While this might sound like a plot from a sci-fi comedy, it's apparently a serious endeavor named "MOON" by Henderson .
The Ultimate Lunar Experience: A Resort on the Moon?
Henderson envisions not just a moon replica but a lunar experience inside the spherical structure. A 4,000-room hotel, a 10,000-seat arena, and a "lunar colony" that replicates the moon's surface for guests to wander on. One can only imagine what the room service would be like on the moon—perhaps a meteor shower of amenities?
Dubai's Extraterrestrial Real Estate Market: Are We on a Different Planet?
With the local real estate market already sizzling, this lunar addition might just be the icing on the cake. People have flocked to Dubai during the pandemic, seeking refuge from restrictions and wars. Now, with the prospect of a moon resort, it seems like Dubai's real estate market is reaching for the stars, quite literally .

While the MOON project is brightening up imaginations, it might not go down as well with potential neighbors.
Plans for a similar structure in London faced protests due to light pollution. Perhaps "moondow" curtains could be a solution? It's a tough job, as Henderson acknowledges, "It's hard to please everybody." 
In conclusion, Dubai's moon project has certainly left Earth's orbit of normality. Whether this project will really see the light of the moon or is just a lunatic's dream, only time will tell. One thing's for sure, it has us all looking up at the sky with a twinkle of curiosity.
