Half a loaf from B612: Asteroid data from nuke blast detectors calls out faulty impact assumptions; older impact data ignored; nothing new

Live updates and edits underway

Press release from B612 Foundation

UPDATE:  B612 Impact Video 4-20-14 H264 from D Josh Rosen on Vimeo.

The Tusk works mightily to avoid speculating about future cosmic impacts at the expense of reporting evidence for such events in the human past, but recent news intervenes once more. [...]

Re-Tusk!

I was chilling with the family two weeks ago at Atlantis, Bahamas, when to my surprise an additional mammoth tusk entered my life. I got a hush-hush email and photo from a friend and long-time employee telling me that our contractor’s brand new Volvo excavator was at that moment assisting in the [...]

Independent confirmation: Young bucks at same school double-check National Academy member and YDB author Kennett’s nanodiamond claims — found ‘em

 The excavation at Bull Creek, Oklahoma, shows the paleosol — ancient buried soil; the dark black layer in the side of the cliff — that formed during the Younger Dryas. – UCSB

 

More recently, another group of earth scientists, including UCSB’s Alexander Simms and alumna Hanna Alexander, re-examined the [...]

Modern Chinese data fits ancient Chinese records: 8th Century event…comet

A comet collided with the Earth’s atmosphere from the Constellation of Orion on 17 Jan AD 773 with coma stretched across the whole sky and disappeared within one day with ‘dust rain’ in the daytime.

Did a 6th Century Comet Bring Global Famine?

Evidence from tree rings and ice cores suggest that parts of Europe, Asia and North America saw protracted cooling in the 530′s, which has been linked to drought and famine. Some scientists hypothesize [...]

Fair Enough: Van Hoesel breaks down YDB science in critical review

Annelies Van Hoesel (Dr. Van Hoesel yet?) recently published an overview of Younger Dryas Boundary Hypothesis in Quaternary Science Reviews. I hear at least one of the YDB authors found it terribly biased against the impact. But it seems to me that she is implicitly admitting that the many obituaries of the YDB impact have [...]
