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 …

Seed Bank Insurance / Korean Doomsday Movie

Seed banks are incredibly valuable resources, and an acknowledgement that sometimes there SHTF events that require emergency backups. Seed banks can help restart horticulture in the event of a natural disaster or spread of a disease. But what if harm comes to the seed bank itself? Wars have destroyed seed banks in Iraq and Afghanistan. And during last year’s uprising in Egypt a seed bank was looted.
Sensibly the Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas – based in Syria – have decided to send a duplicate collection of their seeds to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. It’s a doomsdat bunker for seeds, located in the Norwegian Arctic. In total, 25000 new samples are being sent to Svalbard this week, bringing the total stored there to an incredible 740,000. Alongside Syria, the new samples include a further 12,000 from the USA. Full story at Associated Press.

Seed Vaults

Previously I have mentioned the amazing seed vault in Norway, that seemingly offers plants a better chance of surviving a cataclysm than humans have.
Other places to find species kept safe include:
Native Seeds – 2000 plant varieties in Tucson, USA.
Ambrose Monell Cryo Collection – houses a million frozen tissue samples representing the DNA of a wide range of animal species. Located in New York City.
Millennium Seed Bank Project – large underground frozen vaults in West Sussex, UK, preserving the world’s largest collection of seeds. Now has over 1 billion seeds stored. Aiming to cover 24,000 species of plants, approximately 10% of all existing dry land flora.

National Geographic have published photos of the vault that has been built at the island of Spitsbergen, Norway. Pics of the nearest town are included as well.
