Registering ownership of celestial bodies is not a new concept, but Spaniard Angeles Duran bought the sun. Being a vital resource for life on Earth, it's kind of a big deal.

The 49-year-old woman had little trouble with the paperwork at her local notary office, having afforded her legal claim over the star at the center of our solar system. Though no nation can take possession of a planet, this individual was able to jump through Saturn's hoops to gain Earth's light source as an asset. Angeles Duran bought the sun, and plans to charge global citizens for its usage. It will be interesting to see how this pans out!
