Domino's dreams of pies in the sky

In 2001, the Japanese branch of the Domino's Pizza chain sent along pies for the crew of the International Space Station during a routine supply run in what was the first pizza delivery in space, Yahoo! News reported.

More recently, Domino's hired construction firm Maeda Corp. to draw up plans for a moon-based Domino's restaurant, and the company is finally ready to show them off.

The lunar eatery will cost an estimated $22 billion to complete, and will require 15 rocket trips to deliver supplies to our planetary neighbor's rocky surface.

Staff would be required to live at the restaurant, which might not be such a bad gig considering the company plans to have a huge recreation area inside the complex. Domino's employees would grow everything on-site in state-of-the-art lunar gardens.

Customers will be able to choose to come in for a bite to eat, or have their pizza brought to them by spacesuit-clad delivery boys. (点击雅虎新闻网站查看原文)
