Another Expert Agrees With Dark Comet Theory

February 21, 2013 – 11:31 am | No Comment

Astronomer David Asher (from Armagh University) has agreed with Bill Napier and Janaki Wickramasinghe (Cardiff University) that “dark comets” are real and dangerous.
The following quotes are from a paper by Napier and Asher published in Astronomy & Geophysics.

We know that about one bright comet (of absolute magnitude as bright as 7, comparable to Halley’s Comet) arrives in the visibility zone (perihelion q<5AU, say) each year from the Oort cloud. It seems to be securely established that ~1–2% of these are captured into Halleytype (HT) orbits. The dynamical lifetime of a body in such an orbit can be estimated, from which the expected number of HT comets is perhaps ~3000. The actual number of active HT comets is ~25. This discrepancy of at least two powers of 10 in the expected impact rate from comets as deduced from this theoretical argument on the one hand, and observations on the other, is …

Post-2012 Gear: Kyoto Box

Submitted by on February 11, 2010 – 12:51 pmOne Comment

If anything good ever comes from the poverty in Africa, it’s the recent ingenious inventions providing self-help at affordable prices. Although the aim is to provide cooking/boiling facilities for the poor, this is a great concept for a post-cataclysm scenario. The parts are easily scavenged, and most people would have the skills to construct a Kyoto Box. Therefore boiling water and cooking food should be easy to achieve for just about anyone.

It might look a bit primitive and simplistic, but it is 400 times more cost effective than photovoltaics – and that’s if you buy one ready made. If you recycle, it’s basically free.

All you need is:
  • 2 cardboard boxes – one a little smaller than the other
  • a knife
  • black spray paint
  • aluminium foil
  • glue
  • duct tape
  • insulation / packing material
In terms of scavenging, a supermarket or hardware store, and a dumpster are about all you’d need to source the above items.
Here’s the official site – if you want you could just buy a few to add to your supplies. Over at How Stuff Works is a video demonstrating it.

    Just to add one more requirement. If you live in the UK this will be about as useful as a chocolate kettle. You will either end up with food poising from a severely undercooked piece of meat or a handy drink from your box full of rain water.
