Christmas Fruitcake “To Find Out When We’re Open, Call Us When We’re Open”

Astrological Astronomers

December 23rd, 2006 at 06:52pm

I spotted this potentially alarming article from The Guardian, the start of which reads as follows:

Five billion years on … disaster awaits
Astronomers have captured a vision of the cataclysmic fate which awaits our solar system in about five billion years’ time.

Among the dot points to save people from having to read the article is:

Astronomers foresee end of our solar system

Just wondering, but when and why did astronomers decide to stop pointing their telescopes at the sky, and start pointing them at crystal balls? Or have they just decided to change an “n” to an “l” and be astrologers? The latter would be cheaper, you don’t need a telescope, you can make things up if you want, and if you’re really nuts you might even get an international newspaper syndication deal.
