Woman Gets Ownership of the Sun Notarized

Owning a star isn't all that new. People have been registering stars for people for a long time now. And, while a man already reportedly owns the moon, it looks like a woman from Spain feels like she should be the rightful owner of the star of stars. That's right, Angeles Duran has officially registered her ownership of the sun.

Duran, who lives in Galicia, Spain, has taken the steps to get her ownership of the sun registered, and notarized. She actually did this back in September, and she followed in the same exact steps as the American man who believes he owns the moon. The document states that Duran is now the owner of the Sun, a star of spectral type G2, located in the centre of the solar system, located at an average distance from Earth of about 149,600,000 kilometers."

But, it gets better. Duran actually plans on charging for the use of the sun. But, she's a gracious owner, and won't take all of the money for herself. She's going to disburse it, giving 10 percent to fight world hunger, another 10 percent to general research, and Spain's government will get half of the money. She will get 10 percent, herself.
