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 …

REM: TEOTWAWKI Song Hits The Charts Again

I’ve done enough media in the last month to get a pretty good idea about how little effort is put into most news items. By my reckoning one minute of TV news would take 10-15 minutes of just 4-5 people: a cameraman, sound engineer (sometimes one person does both), the reporter, the editor and the producer. So I doubt they put much time into the music and found footage they use to go with the story. That would explain why well more than half of the doomsday news reports I have been associated with have shown clips from the 2012 movie and have used REM’s hit song as well.

R.E.M.’s doomsday anthem It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) has been given a big sales boost thanks to last week’s Mayan apocalypse prophecy.

…radio station programmers across the U.S. decided to have a little fun with the prediction and filled the airwaves with the disbanded group’s 1988 hit.

As a result, music fans picked up on the fun and snapped up the track on and other online digital services, swelling downloads from 3,000 the previous week to 19,000 during the December 17th-23rd sales week. The flood of interest gave R.E.M. another hit.  The song re-entered the Rock Digital Songs chart at number 18 and Alternative Digital Songs at 14, according to
