Russian Astrologist Sues Nasa

MOSCOW (AP) - 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.

Scientists say the crash did not significantly alter the comet's orbit around the sun and said the experiment does not pose any danger to Earth.

The probe's comet crash sent up a cloud of debris that scientists hope to examine to learn how the solar system was formed.

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."

NASA representatives in Russia could not be reached for comment on the case.

Ha. Moral sufferings. If she's telling the truth, then fine. I'm glad she's suffering. What a dork.

it would be my understanding that moral suffering is something a person experiences who has done something morally wrong

so, why is SHE suffering and not NASA and how she will explain that her suffering is equivalent to 300 million?

This is kinda of funny. My brother and I were both speculating that comets could be some alien form of transportation, and that NASA may have unknowingly broken the guidelines of the Prime Directive (and you all know what that is, right [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/img] ) and therefore made ourselves a target to lifeforms that would've otherwise ignored our existence.

I imagined somewhere that at the moment of impact, the disturbed life-form was exclaiming, "OH NO HE DIDN'T!"

If someone is going to sue in Russia over "moral sufferings" it should be for what that crackpot Stalin did. This lady, and I use the word in it's most loose connotation, needs a long vacation at one of those resorts with padded walls and jackets with extra long wrap around sleeves.
