(Newser) – Not only was he the King of Pop—Michael Jackson was also one of the biggest landowners on the moon. To memorialize the moonwalker, the Lunar Republic Society—an organization that wants to develop the moon for mankind—named a crater Michael Joseph Jackson, reports the Sun. More Jackson news:

  • Dr. Conrad Murray, who was at Jackson’s home the day he died, was investigated for the 2007 death of a patient whose surgery he allegedly botched, TMZ reports.
  • Also from TMZ: Jackson will be buried wearing his iconic white glove. This particular glove is covered in Swarovski crystals.
  • Arnold Klein, Jackson’s dermatologist and the rumored father of his two eldest children, admitted yesterday to Larry King that he donated sperm to a sperm bank—“absolutely not” to Jackson himself, reports Us.
