NASA has been taken to court in Russia over its plans to crack open a comet.
Marina Bai, a Russian astrologist, filed a lawsuit last month with the Presnensky district court in Moscow, demanding that the U.S. space agency call off its $311 million Deep Impact mission. As reported in MosNews.com, Bai is also asking for 8.7 billion rubles ($311 million) in compensation for moral damages.
“The actions of NASA infringe upon my system of spiritual and life values, in particular on the values of every element of creation, upon the unacceptability of barbarically interfering with the natural life of the universe, and the violation of the natural balance of the Universe,” Bai said in her claim. (Story.)
Well, good for Bai, and if this thing attains class-action status you can count me in, too. I’m feeling pretty aggrieved by the way in which NASA is interfering with my ability to resonate with the Cosmosystemic Mother Frequency.
You damned skippy….
