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 …

Here Come the Doomsday Comedy Movies!

After numerous serious and blockbuster films about the apocalypse, some of which were certainly a result of the 2012 meme, here come the comedies. Of course they were probably written and filmed prior to last December, but it wasn’t unusual to expect the Mayan doomsday to be a flop. And now that it has flopped, it is time to let out a sigh of relief and laugh a little.

Last year we had Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and now there are three more on the horizon:

This Is The End opens this week, and has the stars:  James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen. Six Hollywood friends survive and philosophize, read a review that gives it high marks. I can’t see it being a hit – because without CGI and action and romances etc, where’s the appeal?

Rapture-Palooza was released last week, but perhaps most people will see it on DVD or cable. An IMDB reviewer gives us the plot and it sounds terrible/amateur:

The story: the rapture is finally there. Lindsey (Anna Kendrick) and her boyfriend Ben ( John Francis Daley) are non- believers so they remain on earth. The Anti-Christ (Craig Robinson) settles in Seattle (of all places) and wants to have sex with Lindsey. So Ben and Lindsey set up a plan to take him down. In the end God (Ken Jeong) shows up and get’s into a fight with the Anti Christ.

In August we get what will probably be the best of the three, given that it stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, The World’s End.

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again… As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s.

It sounds like a remake of Shaun of the Dead, and that wouldn’t be a bad thing. Also, back in the 90s when I lived in Edinburgh, when I first heard of the Mayan end date, my regular drinking haunt was a pub called The World’s End. It was 20 meters from my front door.
