A remarkable conclusion to make

Astrologer Sues NASA Over Comet Mission Tue Jul 5

NASA's mission that sent a space probe smashing into a comet raised more than cosmic dust — it also brought a lawsuit from a Russian astrologer.

Marina Bai has sued the U.S. space agency, claiming the Deep Impact probe that punched a crater into the comet Tempel 1 late Sunday "ruins the natural balance of forces in the universe," the newspaper Izvestia reported Tuesday. A Moscow court has postponed hearings on the case until late July, the paper said.

Bai is seeking damages totaling $300 million — the approximate equivalent of the mission's cost — for her "moral sufferings," Izvestia said, citing her lawyer Alexander Molokhov. She earlier told the paper that the experiment would "deform her horoscope."
She had probably no idea that Temple I even existed and the ruining of "the natural balance of forces in the universe" is a remarkable conclusion to make.

I wonder how astrologers account for the comets not visible with the naked eye.

Did she ever hear of the Comet Shoemaker-Levy crashing with Jupiter?

The Russian Astrologist Planned to Crash NASA’s Independence Day and Pharyngula made an entry to the subject earlier as he felt a great disturbance in the force

Whether or not she has her chance to win - it's a ridiculous claim that has no basis in reality simply because some idiot believes in astrology.

I rest my case.
