A Spanish woman from region of Vigo Galicia, says she now owns the sun after she registered the star at a local notary public as being her property. It is for the first time in billion years that the Sun has been owned.
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.
Angela Duran, said:
“International law forbids anyone to claim a planet, but nobody ever said anything about stars and the sun is a star. I checked and found that despite all the people buying stars no-one had purchased the Sun in our solar system and, as it was free, I decided to take it… 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 center of the solar system, located at an average distance from Earth of about 149,600,000 kilometers.”
Duran said that 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.
