Astrologer Suit Proceeds against NASA

RIA Novosti reports that a Moscow court is going forward with hearings in the case brought by Marina Bay, the Russian astrologer who is suing NASA for $300 million (8.7 rubles) for crashing the Deep Impact spacecraft into the Temple-1 comet on July 4, 2005 and thereby allegedly ruining "the natural balance of forces in the universe" and causing her moral suffering.

Prior to suing for damages, Ms. Bay brought an unsuccessful action to force NASA to cancel its comet smashing Independence Day mission.

(There is no word on whether Ms. Bay's lawyer is considering adding a claim against NASA for its part in funding the recent discovery of the "10th planet" (2003 UB313). That must have really messed up her charts.

Here on Space Law Probe we don't judge the disgruntled astrologer too harshly. She just hasn't been herself ever since fragments of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 collided with Jupiter in 1994.

Whatever the outcome, let's hope
Mercury isn't in retrograde when the court rules in this case.)
