Astrid Lindgren, Jan 28 2002
Astrid Lindgren, the much loved author of childens books died on Jan 28 2002. Jaan Suurkula sent a note on Feb 1 suggesting that the GCP might show a response, since she was a world figure, important to children and the grownups they come to be. She died a little before noon on Monday the 28th.
Jaan wrote, "She is perhaps most known for "Pippi Longstocking" but has altogether written over 80 books, many of which were bestsellers. She was one of the 12 most read authors in the world and was translated to 80 languages on all continents and won many prizes. She was very much loved by former and present children on all contintents."
In the prediction registry we indicate that she apparently died before noon local time (GMT+1), on 28 January 2002. The announcements to the media came between 12 and 1pm. The length of the prediction segment was set as four hours, from 11:00 to 15:00 GMT, covering the time a little before she died to a few hours after, during which the first news spread around the world. The standard Stouffer Z analysis result is Chi-square 14513 on 14400 df, and p = 0.253. The following figure shows what the 46 active eggs around the world did during this time.
