After registering it with a local Notary a Spanish woman claims ownership of the sun. The intention on her part is to claim it as her property and charge for usage by others. The nineteen sixty seven Outer Space Treaty prevents ownership claims of celestial bodies by governments but seems not to cover private individuals. After contacting legal bodies in Spain her opinion was backed by the Notary.
The Telegraph reports:
Angeles Duran, 49, from Vigo in Spain's northwestern region of Galicia, applied for ownership of the fiery star at the centre of our solar system after learning that similar claims had been made by an American on the Moon, Mars and Venus.
Miss Duran claims to have had discussions with Spain’s Ministry Of Industry to levy a fee for plants that use the suns energy and convert it to electricity. She has conceived a plan to use percentages from the profits for distribution across Spain. While keeping ten percent of the earnings for her use.
