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 …

Chandra Wickramasinghe Dismissed

Submitted by on April 3, 2011 – 6:12 amOne Comment

This totally sucks. Chandra Wickramasinghe is a superstar astronomer (in my opinion) and will most likely be acknowledged (one day) as the most progressive comet researcher of his era. He has given us the concept of dark comets, and greatly helped publicize the study of  panspermia, which he collaborated on with Sir Fred Hoyle.

Now his department at Cardiff University, with a dozen staff, has been shut down to save a mere £15,000. While I’m sure their work will continue, no longer being associated with a university means their ideas won’t find as many people. This decision is seemingly political (or even religious?).

Prof Wickramasinghe added: “Most of our publications last year were in the International Journal of Astrobiology, a mainstream Cambridge University publication which is heavily peer-reviewed and is not a trivial journal.”

The professor, who appealed against his sacking, is now seeking private funding for the centre to continue as a limited company and says he has had two or three expressions of interest in recent days.

He said: “I’ve got ongoing collaborations with, for example, the Russian space agency. Next year is 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first manned trip around the world. To mark this, we’re doing lots of experiments such as looking for viruses and evidence of cometary organics coming in from space. To continue work like that I have to set up a company.”

An official spokesman for Cardiff University said: “The decision to close the Cardiff Centre for Astrobiology (CCAB) in 2010 was made on the basis of budgetary and strategic reasons and not because of any views expressed by Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe or the Centre.

Show your support for Professor Wickramasinghe by finding yourself a safe spot, ASAP, in case a dark comet is heading our way in 2012. Don’t wait until it is spotted, for that will be way too late.

    It took every inch of my being not to swear, what in tarnation are they thinking. Why couldn’t someone, or a group start a fund raiser, I mean, really, shut down the project for peanuts???…… Perhaps they feel safe with all of those fancy satellites they have up there. What good are those, when a less qualified person could miss the subtle nuances of a not so common NEO? Crazy!
