Nasa sued as horoscope fails to make comet sense

Filed under
Legal

A RUSSIAN astrologer is suing Nasa after claiming their recent experiment to study comet Tempel 1 has altered her horoscope.

Marina Bai is seeking £166 million in damages, after the Deep Impact probe crashed into the comet and changed its orbit.

The experiment, on July 4, was a huge success, with the impactor probe unleashing a spray of material formed billions of years ago which scientists hope will allow them to shed new light on the composition of the solar system.

Researchers were uncertain as to the size of scar their impactor left on the comet, saying it could be anywhere from the size of a large house to a football stadium.

The unique research operation is being conducted about 84 million miles away from Earth.

But Ms Bai has argued its effects will "disrupt the natural balance of forces in the universe" and claims the experiment has violated her "life and spiritual values".

She said: "It is obvious my horoscope will be deformed now that elements of the comet's orbit and associated ephemera have been changed after the explosion."

Her lawyer Alexander Molokhov, said his client believed the experiment "infringes upon the natural life of the cosmos, and will disrupt the natural balance of forces in the universe."

Moscow district court said initial preparations for the case were under way but could not say when the hearing would begin.
