Domino's pizza has claimed it is planning to build a restaurant on the surface of the Moon.

The ambitious concept follows on from Pizza Hut's delivery of the first ever pizza in space to the astronauts at the International Space Station. Domino's estimates that the moon restaurant would cost 13.4 billion and require 15 launches to build.

"Keen to make the most of local resources, Domino's said it will keep costs down by using mineral deposits on the moon to make the concrete, which is likely to cost around Y194 billion (1."
