A Writ in the Stars

This passed me by this week, at least until I caught up with it in today’s Sunday Times. Russian astrologer, Marina Bai, is suing NASA for having crashed their Deep Impact probe into the Tempel 1 comet. Apparently the minor deviation of the comet will distort her horoscopes and she reckons this is worth £172 million in compensation.

The ST says she presumably knows the outcome of her case already, which prompts a thought: If she loses (and there’s no telling she will these days), could she claim that this wouldn’t have happened had Tempel 1 not continued on its pre-ordained course? Prove that and you’ll be able to go for even more compo love.
