Psychiatry – A Documentary On Pseudoscience

In May of 2014, the Rosetta spacecraft will arrive at comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.  The craft will deploy the Philae probe to land on the surface of the comet. A few predictions about this event: 1. The surface of the comet will be solid rock. 2. The surface will either be entirely devoid of ice or it will…
