Astrological Influences in Effect at the Time of the Three Major NASA Accidents


Does astrology influence important events?  You bet!  Thinking it a bit strange that all of these tragic events occurred at approximately the same time of year is what led the author to conduct this study.  This article was originally published in the Journal of the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) Volume XXXVI, Number 3 (Leo 2006). 

This comprehensive astrological study begins with the quest for determining NASA's correct "time of birth" which is essential to obtaining an accurate natal chart, whether it's for an individual or entity such as a corporation or government agency.  Once that is determined based on correspondence with the National Archives it is followed by a complete analysis of astrological aspects and lunations in effect for the Apollo I fire, Challenger accident and Columbia disaster. All occurred at the approximate time of NASA's solar opposition with harsh natal aspects activated by lunations and hard transits.  Charts and biwheels for the lunations and transits in effect for these tragic events as well as similar missions with more fortunate outcomes are included, providing a convincing assessment of astrology's influence on these tragic events. 

The author worked at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, for 21 years and was one of many who helped recover debris in East Texas from the Columbia disaster in Spring 2003. During the extensive meetings held by the NASA safety community subsequent to the accident she decided to take a look at how astrology played into the high tech world and was quite surprised by the massive correlations she found for all three events.

This astrological investigation is of a technical nature which will be of interest primarily to students of mundane astrology.
