Only if the start included planets with it.

I could rule the universe so to speak

pfft. you don't need a star registry for this. look at the sky, pick one out, and say it's yours.

yes but how do you remember which one of them all it is.

You'll end up chaning stars all the time.

Me, I would like to own a planet....that'd be kinda cool.

With star registry mentioned in the story its not about buying or owning a star, but naming one.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 10/1/06 - 3:11:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather be owned by a star.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/10/06 - 5:00:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not really no.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 10/14/06 - 3:54:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
I own a galaxy.

No, what's the point? It's not like you can actually go and visit it, and no one but you will even know about its existence, unless you go and brag about having a star named you to all your friends, which would be pretty stupid anyway.

It's just...not tangible enough.

15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 10/30/06 - 8:32:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, it doesn't seem all that great to me. A planet, I would do.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 11/18/06 - 2:03:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
no cause how would you know which one was yours?
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 11/18/06 - 2:18:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
why would i want a burning ball of gas? if you'd have said planet or universe i would have considerd it.

Has anyone noticed that these guys sell something that isn't theirs?
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 12/21/06 - 6:28:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
Meh, not really. Just a dot of light in the sky.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 2/13/07 - 10:32:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, but not enough to actually buy one.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 2/13/07 - 10:36:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
What gives them the authority to sell stars anyway?

I'd say that the only way to own a star is to build an armada of spaceships, and go occupy the surrounding space.

15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 2/13/07 - 10:52:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't buy one for myself but it would be the ultimate gift.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 2/13/07 - 10:56:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh wait, nevermind:

Q: Will the scientific community recognize my star name?
A: No. We are a private company that provides Gift Packages. Astronomers will not recognize your name because your name is published only in our Star catalog. We periodically print a book called Your Place in the Cosmos © which lists the stars that we have named.

So basically, this company is making money off suckers by saying this star will live on with your name forever. It won't. You're not getting anything.

That sucks. :(

I'd just like to take this opportunity to say "Told you so"

15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 2/13/07 - 11:02:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I heard that they are pretty expensive, and we almost bought one years ago.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 2/13/07 - 11:03:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
^Yeah, you pay $50-150 for a star chart and coords to a random star.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 5:50:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Though I bet you wouldn't actually own it if someone could get to them.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 5:52:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only if somebody else bought it for me.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 3/25/07 - 8:34:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, the stars don't belong to anyone so you can't exactly sell them. Big con.
