Addendum: Thanks to Chaotic Synaptic Activity for the link to this:
A Russian astrologer sues NASA over Deep Impact Mission.
She is concerned about the impact causes problems out in the universe....and she is demanding $300M in damages. I wonder just where she will spend it? The Cafe at the End of the Universe? The Great Galactic Preserve? I dunno, I think she's just going to pocket it.
There's more, go read it!
