News Flash

Those "International Star Registry" ads you hear on the radio all the time (at least I hear them a lot)? They're total BS, in case anyone here was wondering. Though I suspect those stupid enough to believe them probably aren't reading this blog - they simply get all their information from talk radio and Fox News.

But, just in case you were wondering, only the International Astronomical Union actually gives valid names to stars. And they have a system for doing so, that does not involve you paying approximately $50 to them.
