Who is right? Astronomers or astrologers?
Who is closest to the truth, those wacky medieval prognosticators who lure their clients to give up control of their lives, or the enlightened, erudite scholars of outer space?
This question will finally be settled in the 27-campus Battle of the Stars, featuring Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Eric Francis Coppolino.
The tour begins Friday evening at Columbia University in New York City, and will proceed through the spring in North America, with the final stop being the University of Toronto.
The tour will continue onto Europe through the summer, where students are so intelligent, they insist on going to college even in the warm weather. The series will conclude this August in Prague on the anniversary of the demotion of Pluto.
The co-moderators of the event will be Nancy Reagan and Dr. Robert Hand, who have worked together for years as client and astrologer.
“I’m so excited,” Mr. Coppolino said in a statement issued by his publicist’s press agent’s representative. “I can’t wait to explain to Neil what a dwarf planet is. I read his book about Pluto and there were a few mistakes.”
