I wasn’t going to comment on this but reader Matthew emailed me to say
Skeptico, please tell me you're not going to let this one go... Marina Bai, astrologist, is suing NASA because they crashed one of their probes into a comet, thus screwing up her horoscope! It would be a crime to let this loon go unfisked, don't you think?
Well yes it would, although I note Randi pretty much fisked her today (I hope that isn’t rude in some European language).
Personally, I hope she does sue. Of course, she would have to prove that her fortune changed due to some change in this comet. So she would have to prove what her fortune was before, what it is now and how they differ, ie she would have to prove astrology works. She could have trouble doing that since, as we know, astrology doesn’t work. In fact, we know that astrology is just made-up nonsense. Still, I await her attempt to prove otherwise in a court of law.
