Woman claims ownership of the Sun

Recommended Posts

MADRID (AFP) – After billions of years the Sun finally has an owner -- a woman from Spain's soggy region of Galicia said Friday she had registered the star at a local notary public as being her property.

 

Angeles Duran, 49, told the online edition of daily El Mundo she took the step in September after reading about an American man who had registered himself as the owner of the moon and most planets in our Solar System.

 

There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals, she added.

 

"There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law. I did it but anyone else could have done it, it simply occurred to me first."

 

The document issued by the notary public declares Duran to be 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 kilometres".

 

Duran, who lives in the town of Salvaterra do Mino, said she now wants to slap a fee on everyone who uses the sun and give half of the proceeds to the Spanish government and 20 percent to the nation's pension fund.

 

She would dedicate another 10 percent to research, another 10 percent to ending world hunger -- and would keep the remaining 10 percent herself.

 

"It is time to start doing things the right way, if there is an idea for how to generate income and improve the economy and people's well-being, why not do it?" she asked.

Found this:

She hasn’t “backed her claim legally”. In fact she obviously hasn’t even bothered to read the 1967 U.N. Outer Space Treaty, which was ratified and is currently in effect, and which clearly covers this subject: “States Parties to the Treaty shall bear international responsibility for national activities in outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, whether such activities are carried on by governmental agencies or by non-governmental entities, and for assuring that national activities are carried out in conformity with the provisions set forth in the present Treaty. The activities of non-governmental entities in outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, shall require authorization and continuing supervision by the appropriate State Party to the Treaty." Since she as a private citizen is classified as a non-governmental entity, she’ll be needing the UN’s approval for her claim, not justa local notary public. And I wouldn’t hold my breath for that if I were her.

 

Keep seeing all these comments about suing for skin cancer and blaming her for global warming! haha.gif

I'll wipe my ass with a "sun fee"

 

The only way anyone can "own" anything, is if the majority of people agree to acknowledge that ownership. Nobody is going to acknowledge her claim to ownership, let alone a "toll" fee for its usage.
