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 …

Trailer: The Carrington Event

Submitted by on January 31, 2012 – 2:03 pmNo Comment

The above trailer is for a TV series in development. Here’s the official synopsis for The Carrington Event:

Joseph Carrington runs an organic mini-farm on the outskirts of a large, southern town. His rustic lifestyle means he is a bit removed from his family: his wife has spent the last decade pursuing a career in pediatrics; his teenage daughter, Tracy, wants nothing more than to be moving on with her life in a big city; his 10-year-old son has been raised on television, video games and abundance.

It´s a typical day of drama and duties when a solar storm cuts power to the farm. Soon after they discover that all electricity and communications in town are at total blackout as well: Cell phones do not connect, battery powered radios get only static, nothing is transmitting from television networks. There is no way of knowing what is happening outside their encapsulated environment, except by word of mouth.

All things in the outside world descend into chaos without electricity and communications. Resources diminish. For most a struggle of life and death ensues. The family must pull together and overcome their differences. They must discover what is happening and how they can survive.

I really hope they picked up by a TV network, because, well, developer Rob Underhill explains:

When I was on Empact Radio, one of the coolest things that was said was at the ending, where he said, “Well I really hope your show gets picked up, because you could have a panel of the top scientists telling you that the doom and gloom is coming, but no one is going to care. But, if you do a popular TV show on the event, everyone is going to pay attention, and something might actually happen.”

It could be a great TV series, and one for 2012ers and Preppers to watch, but the awareness it would bring to this NASA-warned possibility could literally save millions of lives. Here’s a few more quotes from Underhill, from an interview.

Yes, we based a lot of it off of the NASA reports and other expert opinions on how things would transpire. And then he had to decide how to take some of that and just turn up the dial from the actual Carrington Event.

In just a few days the jails are full. The town police -the sheriff – he has to start deputizing people to keep up, and that causes problems of course. And they have their own problems at the jail, because you know they stop getting outside communications, the water’s not running and so that becomes an issue. Then of course, people only have about a couple of days worth of food in their house, so everyone wants to raid the store to stock up as much as they can. So there are a few times that we visit the major store in town where there are people causing problems from the very outset and also later on. Then, we also have some gang factions that start to get opportunistic as well.
