Domino's Plans Pizza On the Moon

samzenpus posted more than 2 years ago | from the extra-cheese dept.

Moon 214

It may be more PR stunt than a viable expansion plan, but the Japanese arm of Domino's Pizza is making plans for a lunar store. Construction firm Maeda Corp has drawn-up the plans for the dome shaped restaurant and figures it will take 70 tons of materials and pizza-making equipment. Even with the cost cutting measure or using mineral deposits on the moon to make the concrete, Domino's estimates the costs at Y1.67 trillion ($21.7 billion). In 2001 rival chain Pizza Hut made a delivery to the International Space Station, but Domino's hopes to become the preferred pizza of space with the moon store plan.

Luckily the moon is only a few minutes away at the speed of light.

Or will we see disclaimers in their commercials: Not applicable on the Moon.

Will they sing the moon sailor song? "We are sailors of the moon and we carry a harpoon"

SlippyToad (240532) | more than 2 years ago | (#37276636)

I worked for Domino's two decades ago. They never actually were brazen enough to offer 15 min or free. Oh, and by the way, the reason they did that so freely, was because the DRIVER ate the cost of a late pizza.

And also, my manager very clearly ENCOURAGED ME TO BREAK THE LAW as a driver. There was nothing subtle about it. He pointed out streets that were known to have low or no traffic enforcement, and of course again I'd like to point out that 30 minutes or free meant that I the driver would pay $10 or $20 out of my own pocket if I couldn't get it there on time.

One reason I don't order Domino's ever. They as a corporation are pure fucking evil. I think the founder/owner is some sort of Teabag nutjob too. A real piece of work, er, shit, I mean.

Anyway, this is probably the lamest PR stunt I can picture. With any luck, Domino's as a company will have ceased to exist by the time we make a permanent residence on the Moon.

Again, I can't shit on them enough. Truly a despicable company. The founder is a blatant liar, and his corporate policies unmistakably lead to many, many, many totally avoidable traffic deaths and injuries.

I won't fault your claims, nor will I question your logic, or conclusions. I'll just point out that this is a Japanese Domino's. They may also be "pure fucking evil", but the evil will have a different flavor, I'm sure.

Let's put it this way: How many corporate douchebags in America are visualizing something as outrageous as pizza delivery on the moon? Careful now, I said CORPORATE douchebags. Not comic strip writers, or Hollywood script writers, or whatever. I'm talking about big shots with real money and resources with which to conceivably do such a thing.

It's kind of funny, they have a tracker that will tell you things like "Brad is beginning to prep your delicious order!" and you can leave comments for the staff (from a dropdown).

Since we're nowhere near having long-term colonization of the moon, and the summary actually acknowledges that this is a PR stunt why are getting this mentioned at all on Slashdot? This is ridiculous. There's no where near the tech level to easily put this sort of thing on the moon and there's no way the company will actually spend money to do this. Meanwhile all sorts of interesting science and technology developments are happening that aren't getting mentioned. For example, astronomers have discovered a star that doesn't fit with a lot of our theories of star formation http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/08/110831155340.htm [sciencedaily.com] . Or Slashdot could have given us another update on the ISS's current situation. Heck, if you need something with minimal actual scientific content you could have linked to this amusing video by the ISS crew about the matter http://www.universetoday.com/88559/iss-crew-provides-light-hearted-look-at-current-space-flight-plight/ [universetoday.com] . Or you could talk about the new website devoted to the exploration of Mars by the Spirit and Opportunity http://www.universetoday.com/88562/driving-miss-spirit/ [universetoday.com] .

I don't understand that number; if all they need is 70 tons of stuff on the Moon, then a few Falcon 9 Heavies should be able to put that there for a billion or so.

But they'd still take a very long time to get a return on their money from selling pizza to lunar tourists.

Virtually all projects large enough become defined, constrained, and shaped by their logistics instead of their preferred policy or plan. Right now, if you wanted to get it built up there, it would be expensive.

Engineering problems (1)

linear a (584575) | more than 2 years ago | (#37276532)

They left out some important design details. First off, pizza cooks poorly at 1/6 gee and it's difficult to get a crispy crust, tends to be more evenly heated throughout and it all dries out. Akin to that, it takes to long to cook conventionally since it's not pressing down on the slab for the same reason. Fuel costs are of course bad, but at least it's Dominos. Can't imagine the cost per pizza for wood-fired pizza ovens. That's a lot of wood to boost to Luna. Answer to the fuel costs thing can be the *strong* sunlight on the moon, just open the shades and let the sun shine on the pizza for a minute or so. That only works for 2 weeks at a time though, and you have to be able to angle the pizza for optimal sunlight exposure based on current sun position.

No one can hear you scream, and Domino's pizza has no taste.

Oh, wait, the second part's true on Earth, too.
