Go NASA go!

BBC reports:
A Russian astrologer is suing NASA for crashing a probe into a comet, claiming it has distorted her horoscope.

Marina Bai is seeking $300m (£170m) in damages, saying the probe's impact on Comet Tempel 1 violated her "life and spiritual values".


"It is obvious that elements of the comet's orbit and associated ephemera will change after the explosion, which interferes with my practice of astrology and deforms my horoscope," Ms Bai told the Izvestia daily newspaper.
One more fine excuse for predictions not working our right: blame it on NASA. Maybe they should just send Ms Bai out to Comet Tempel. Or is that not in her horoscope?
