The Cosmic Tusk
Exploring abrupt climate change and pandemic induced by comets and asteroids during human history

Avi Loeb

Hmmm...

March 29, 2021

Avi Loeb is no household name, but he wants to be. The chairman of the Department of Astronomy at Harvard has appeared on more than 50 podcasts since the start of the year. Given a minimum of one hour per podcast, I’d ask for a week’s pay back if I were Harvard. The guy is […]

Tusk and UnchartedX join The Randall Carlson Podcast

February 15, 2021

Free speech podcasting is an awesome thing. Before our digital overlords take podcasting from us, the Tusk is going to enjoy it as much as possible as a consumer and a guest. Joining geo-bear and catastrophe sherpa Randall Carlson on his show this week was particularly fun.

Funny stuff

Internet wag zeros in on real science

February 5, 2021

This is a priceless video spoof concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. And surprisingly, it is directed at the most timely part of the actual debate — the most recent attack on the hypothesis from Sun et al. — which it manages to DESTROY. https://t.co/WQtQFoDsRk — George Howard (@CosmicTusk) February 6, 2021

Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes pinned on fragmenting Taurid comet

Bill Napier's work to warn of increased risk described by Evan Gough of Universe Today

February 4, 2021

In a nutshell, Napier’s study shows how comets are likely to fragment and lose considerable mass during encounters with the inner Solar System. The debris trail can expand to a cross section larger than Earth, increasing the odds of impacts with Earth. Also, the debris has considerable impact energy. But over time, that energy weakens, […]

Read the papers: Covid is probably from Space

Life and disease in space confirmed by Russians in 2018

January 26, 2021

In 2018, on January 23, Russia was first to publish the discovery of space based life obtained by appropriate technical means in a collaborative international scientific effort. Based on genes swiped with a tampon from the OUTSIDE of an International Space Station window, three respected Russian laboratories, and twelve well-credentialed scientists, published a peer-reviewed journal article demonstrating that seven species of dessicated, hibernated and freeze dried microbial life forms were plastered to the exterior of the spacecraft.

Egypt Unplugged

New media creatives share the adventure

January 23, 2021

The only thing more fun than touring Egypt top to bottom is making the trip with creative people that record the adventure and share it with the world. The Tusk is thrilled to have the memories and interpretations of our wonderful expedition out there to enjoy for years to come. Lemme know if I’ve missed anything, but below is the growing body of work I’ve collected and will keep updated. With any luck, our Digital Overlords will find it worthwhile as well and the content will persist for future generations;)

Happy New Year!!!

Tusk racks up two co-author citations PER WEEK in 2020

January 1, 2021

If you can’t toot your own horn on New Years, when can you? As a citizen scientist the Tusk is darn proud — and thankful to the credentialed lead authors — to close 2020 with exactly 100 co-author citations. More interesting than my navel, perhaps, is the trend in citations concerning the Younger Dryas Impact […]

New media on the Younger Dryas Impact

PBS includes the cosmic cataclysm, and Jim Kennett explains it

December 28, 2020

Between Egypt and the ‘Ro I have neglected to post a lot in the last few months. I’ll be trying to rectify that this year, in part by doing shorter posts with more 3rd party media concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Catastrophe. There have also been a couple of new papers I’ve not posted (outside […]

Tusk returns from epic Ancient Egypt Technology tour

Suspects pre-Younger Dryas assist for megaliths

December 19, 2020

Well, the Tusk has returned from two weeks in the land of the Pharaohs and enjoyed the most physically exhausting and intellectually fulfilling experience of my lifetime. I joined the hosts, Ben of UnchartedX and Jimmy of Bright Insight, and 27 new friends for what I believe is one of the great modern tours Egypt. We had extraordinary access to all the wonders of this timeless nation and were welcomed by everyone, everywhere, under extraordinary circumstances.

Ted Steele and the real deal

Covid from Space team summarizes the science

November 12, 2020

From Dr. Ted Steele, to a redacted correspondent (11/10/20):

Dear Sir, I represent a group of international scientists led by the renowned astrophysicist/astrobiologist Professor N. Chandra Wickramasinghe PhD (Cardiff), Professor Reginald M Gorczynski MD PhD ( Toronto Health Network, UoT) and other colleagues from the UK, Australia, Canada, Japan, USA, and Russia.

Retraction?!?!

Imperious MedComm editor James Henderson Naismith defiles science by "requesting" Covid paper retraction from Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe

October 6, 2020

Science hits rock bottom. Covid is from space.

Don't miss media

Excellent content piling up on the Younger Dryas Impact Event

September 28, 2020

The Tusk recalls keeping the YDIE a secret in 2006 and 2007, so as not to threaten the publication of what became the seminal paper in 2007. Today the secret is most assuredly OUT. Hundreds of hours of podcasts, videos, and plain old lectures are spilling forth from people all over the globe who are fascinated by the profoundly important and increasingly mainstream discovery.

Astrobiological Airbrush

Avi Loeb and Manasvi Lingam re-write science history to eliminate modern founders of astrobiology

September 15, 2020

Havard’s Avi Loeb, and Florida Tech’s Manasvi Lingam, do science and their own reputations a great disservice in a recently published fake history of the term astrobiology. In their self-described “Treatise,” they present the subject as the result of a simple progression of people and ideas, and provide 120 references purporting to follow the growth in understanding of the subject. They even credit themselves with “theoretical and experimental breakthroughs in resolving the question of how life originated on our planet.”

Polymath professor takes down volcano paper; proper interpretation of data supports comet impact theory for Younger Dryas

Younger Dryas trigger: Cosmic Impacts or Volcanoes?

Sun et al. and Sweatman trade notes through Twitter Tusk

August 4, 2020

An extensively covered journal article by Sun et al. in Science Advances concludes that volcanoes — not a fragmenting comet — caused the Younger Dryas. Sun provides an invaluable trove of data, but less than 72 hours after the publication their interpretation is suffering.

Pinned Post: Four key papers on Covid from Space

From Steele, Wickramasinghe, Howard et al.

August 1, 2020

If you are interested in Covid from Space this is your summer reading.  While it is preceded by a variety of other articles, in fact many hundreds if you include the wider literature of Panspermia, these two publication are the starting point for truly understanding Covid. They tell us more about the disease in one fell swoop than all the other global science pubs since January 2020 combined.

A masterpiece of understanding

Dr. Wickramasinghe explains it all in new video

July 25, 2020

I’ve had the distinct privilege of being in regular touch with Chandra Wickramasinghe this year. Daily emails and regular Skype and Zoom calls have become a wonderful (wonder-full) intellectual dialogue. I am amazed at his ability to stay inspirational and relevant despite his ostracism from the field HE founded: Astrobiology.

The indefatigable Dr. Martin Sweatman

Edinburgh professor nearing end of monumental YDIH review

June 13, 2020

What would the planet do without the tireless? I love how our subject draws in gifted obsessives from around the world. One example is Marc Young in Australia who compiled The Bib last year. Soon after The Bib was released, Dr. Martin Sweatman University of Edinburgh picked up and leveraged the easily available information.  In […]
