the rath of marina bai

Russian astrologer, Marina Bai, has launched a lawsuit against NASA for "ruin[ing] the natural balance of forces in the universe" after their Deep Impact probe punched a crater into the comet Tempel 1 late Sunday.

According to Associated Press, Bai is seeking damages totalling 8.7 billion rubles ($300 million US) - the approximate equivalent of the mission's cost - for her "moral sufferings," Izvestia said, quoting her lawyer Alexander Molokhov. She earlier told the paper that the experiment would "deform her horoscope."

The Republic of Holtopia will also be suing NASA, but for property damage rather than emotional distress. That "asteroid" was actually an early space probe designed and launched by the Holtopian space program.

The Ministry of Shiny Objects and Vehicular Asteroids is currently investigating the total damage that our space probe sustained.
