Moon ResortLas Vegas, USA

get lost to planet earth: there's a moon heading for a collision with Vegas.

With Branson and the like jettisoning off to the actual moon, the appropriately named Moon World Resorts Inc. is bringing the Big Cheese to us (to Las Vegas, specifically).

The Canadian-based company has announced plans for a $5 billion, 5.5-million-square-foot hotel whose signature feature will be a gigantic replica of the moon.

The moon itself will be 1/75,000th the size of the real thing. Which is actually pretty big, judging from the photo they've released.

The rest is a big deal too: a 2,500-seat theatre, a spaceship nightclub, a planetarium, a 5,000-seat event centre and 10,000-seat arena. And, of course, a 130,000-square-foot casino (this is Vegas)

Ninety-minute trips across 10 acres of craters in a 'moon buggy' will be available for $500 USD.

This is no conspiracy theory either - expected landing is in 2026 or 2027.  More are planned after that, with telescopes set to the Middle East, China, and Spain.
