The Null Device
You know that company that, for a sum of money
(insignificant compared to immortality) will name a star after you, your
loved one, your dog or whatever? Well, what they don't tell you is that
recognises those names
; in other words, astronomers will not start referring
to gaseous interstellar objects as "Joey Bloggs" or "Fluffy the Wonderhamster"
or whatever just because you were gullible enough to part with US$48.
Still, the scam has taken in many po'buckers, and some high-flyers including
Nicole Kidman. (Who'd have thought she'd be gullible enough to buy
into such hairbrained schemes
