The clairvoyant, the magician and the proto-psi-cop
Science 'solves' mysteries

Didier and Robert-Houdin

Mary Rose Barrington has posted below on the encounter between the clairvoyant Alexis Didier and the magician Jean Eugene Robert-Houdin. On its own, the story is worth retelling, but Mary Rose has added an entertaining twist: a sceptic's recent and quite desperate attempts to explain it away (March 23, 'The clairvoyant, the magician and the proto-psi-cop). This is Randi's Million Dollar Challenge in reverse, without the cash, obviously, and without the histrionics. Many thanks, Mary Rose.
