NASA to be Sued for Planned Comet Destruction

An astrologer is planning to sue NASA over its planned mission to blow a crater in the Tempel 1 comet. The claimant, Russian Marina Bai, says that such an act will "disrupt the natural balance of the universe" and wants $300 million in damages.

The $279 million project involves launching a spacecraft called Deep Impact in January which will intercept the comet and release a 370-kilogram self-guided impactor which is expected to make a football stadium-sized crater in its target.

The astrologers lawyer says "My client believes that the NASA project infringes upon her spiritual and life values as well as the natural life of the cosmos and would disrupt the natural balance of forces in the universe."
