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 …

Solar Flare Update

Submitted by on February 18, 2011 – 12:57 pm2 Comments

The biggest solar flare in four years has sent charged particles hurtling towards Earth. ABC News says:

The radiation from Monday’s flare, known as a Coronal Mass Ejection, should pass the Earth today, Friday and Saturday. The charged particles will speed by at some 560 miles per second.

…What makes this storm interesting, said Joe Kunches of the Space Weather Prediction Center, is that there were actually three flares in succession — and radiation from the last and biggest of them is travelling faster than the particles from the first two.

“What’s the effect of the triple punch?” said Kunches. “Stay tuned.” Outbursts such as the current one are actually quite common, scientists say. But modern technology can be sensitive to solar storms; scientists say satellites, power grids and communications networks can suffer outages.

The worst that we can expect would be pagers not working, some minor power blackouts, planes on polar routes changing course, and and some auroras to view. Hopefully we get some minor damage that might prompt governments to be better prepared for the big one that is potentially arriving in 2012.

    I am becoming exceedingly despondent over the “re-runs” of various
    articles.Surely there has to be somthing new to think about??????

  • Rob Bast says:

    There will be more solar flare reports for sure. It’s the most likely global catastrophe for 2012/2013 – power grids being knocked out. People need to plan and prepare, and when the big one comes, say X15+, flee.
