Live Link: Comet/Asteroid Impacts and Human Society

I discovered a rogue PDF of a 2006 text I have long coveted.  It was just as good as expected. Chapter 2.3 is a fascinating summary of the Bruce Masse myth studies, among other goodies, and taught me a thing or two.

Cheers to editors Peter Bobrowsky and Hans Rickman:

Comet ISON, Newton’s Great Comet of 1680, Solar Flares, and the 775 AD Eichler Event

Newton’s Great Comet of 1680

Update: A couple of useful links and a popular article on the subject.

I just learned of the discovery of Comet ISON which has apparently electrified the astronomy world for months. What then caught my eye was a paper from David Eichler of Ben Gurion University published just [...]

Clovis Comet paper #1 read article in Geology

The wisdom of crowds is comforting. Despite the near total news blackout of the recent developments related to our subject, readers have shot Anders Carlson’s 2010 free paper, What Caused the Younger Dryas Cold Event?, to the top of the Most Read articles in the journal Geology.

I am not surprised. This is an absolutely fascinating subject and [...]

Finally Available in PNAS: Very High Temperature Impact Melt Products: Evidence for Cosmic Impacts \ Airbursts 12,900 years ago

These scientists have identified three contemporaneous levels more than 12,000 years ago, on two continents yielding siliceous scoria-like objects (SLO’s),” said H. Richard Lane, program director of National Science Foundation’s Division of Earth Sciences, which funded the research. “SLO’s are indicative of high-energy cosmic airbursts/impacts, bolstering the contention that these events induced [...]
