President Reagan and Charting the Stars

May 07, 1988

A friend accused Niels Bohr, the late Danish quantum physicist, of being superstitious because he had a horseshoe above his office door. The physicist said he wasn't superstitious, but the horseshoe seemed to work just the same.

Are our lives affected by the stars? Can the measurement of a particle affect another particle light years away? The late Carroll Righter, astrologer, said yes to the first question. Physicist Bohr said yes to the second.

Who's to say a nation's destiny isn't written in the stars? Horseshoes and horoscopes, quasars and quarks. What a world!
