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.
http://star.arm.ac.uk/preprints/2009/539.pdf

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 …

More likely during eclipses and perhaps Comet Elenin is a factor?

Potentially Hazardous Asteroids

Submitted by on May 27, 2012 – 11:36 am4 Comments

Until recently the NASA mantra regarding an asteroid impact in 2012 went like this:

We already know there is no asteroid large enough to produce a mass extinction that is in an Earth-crossing orbit today. We have found at least 90% of those large enough to threaten civilization.

NASA is referring to asteroids wider than 1 kilometer. So far they have discovered 843 of those large asteroids (as of May 2012), and figure that accounts for 93% of them. Or, for a more worrisome description, they believe there are still 64 asteroids out there that can threaten civilization, and we don’t know where.

Lesser asteroids can still cause significant harm. NASA is also looking for medium-sized asteroids that are between 100 meters and 1 kilometer in diameter. They are “big enough to survive passing through Earth’s atmosphere and cause damage on a regional, or greater, scale“. This is especially true if they cause a tsunami upon impact. By greater than regional I guess they mean continental scale. I guess they mean that a lot of civilization could be wiped out, just not all of it.

Here’s the latest news:

Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are about twice as common as originally thought, according to new research by NASA.

Potentially Hazardous Asteroids are the not the same as Near Earth Asteroids. The primary difference is that a PHA crosses Earth’s orbit, whereas a NEA is outside of our orbit and would require an outside force to knock it into our path. Or the orbit could be changing in the long term.

There are roughly 4,700 (plus or minus 1,500) potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs) with diameters larger than 330 feet (about 100 meters). So far, an estimated 20 to 30 percent of these objects have been found, according to observations from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), which have led to the best assessment yet of our solar system’s population of potentially hazardous asteroids.

Or in other words, thousands that could be heading towards us right now. So when NASA assure us that there is nothing to worry about, don’t believe them. Do your own research, and prepare for the worst, just in case.

    Well, at least we have front row seats…

    Lately, I can’t stop wondering what your hidden agenda is … Is it your upcoming book, do you have some nice income on this website and the ads or is it something bigger ?

    While it is still in the 2012-meme, you are jumping from one possibility to another without making any hard evidence. Is this what you are calling ‘doing own research’ ??? Well, let me tell you : it ain’t ! Doing your own research holds a bit more than just surfing around the web and gathering information from different – mostly obscure and lack-of-evidence – websites or sources.

    Well, I guess you’ve giving up on me answering my critics. As always, when too difficult questions are being asked, evasive behaviour is the best to keep going.

  • Even if Kristin is correct and Rob does have his own agenda, whether
    it is possibly sales of an upcoming book,or if in fact Rob turns out
    to be the ANTI-CHRIST(LOL) who cares if he FINALLY makes a buck or two
    after having created wonderfully informative websites offering a great variety of science related news articles. I find myself in debt to Rob
    for helping me attain a level of awareness that I had never before
    experienced. Hey Kristin,let’s see what you have to share?

    @kirsten:

    Nobody knows what will happen on Dec 21, 2012 – if anything. So I try to provide full coverage of all the vaguely possible possibilities.

    If you check out the main site, there are original articles on Comet Caesar, Earthquakes and Eclipses, and Noah’s Ark in Iran. These are examples of where I have made extensive research and come up with totally original ideas.

    But often posts here are just curiousities, ideas for readers to potetnially follow up themselves. They are of interest to 2012ers, but not of enough interest to me for me to spend a week of research on.

    (in case you didn’t realise, the time I have left for research is short…)
