The Bos and Vance Holliday in the funny papers

January 15, 2019

Some wag tweeted this funny cartoon today depicting the current state of affairs in Younger Dryas Boundary Research. The storyboard calls out The Bos and Vance Holliday for their willful ignorance with regard to the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. The clever and extraordinarily well informed cartoonist points out the awkward position The Bos has created for […]

Bright Insight

YouTube wisdom on Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis

January 1, 2019

Jimmy at Bright Insight has posted a masterpiece of science and speculation concerning the YDIH. How do these guys do this? I would find it very, very difficult to prepare all this info and share it in such a coherent manner on camera. Some of his other videos are just tad too speculative, even for […]

Hiawatha Crater central peak

Hiawatha Discovery Team member Anders Bjork tweets 3D crater model

December 31, 2018

As most crater heads know, a “central peak” within a bowl shaped depression is diagnostic of a large “complex crater” resulting from a highly energetic (to say the very least) cosmic collision. Though NASA made an effort to point out the subtle peak features of Hiawatha Crater beneath a mile of erosive ice, the portion […]

Another crater?

Second feature found inland of Hiawatha may be hinted 2nd Greenland crater

Longtime Tusk buddy and dedicated Catastrophist Steve Garcia went crater hunting and located IMHO a great candidate for the second crater hinted at by NASA scientist Dr. Joe MacGregor of the Hiawatha Discovery Team. He was thoughtful to send the Tusk the first image below of the suspect dimple beneath a mile of ice. I […]

The Bos gets religion?

Mark Boslough discovers Taurid stream threat in late June -- 40 years after Clube and Napier

December 27, 2018

Oh, lordy, bring me my salts. I do feel the vapours coming on. You could have knocked the Tusk over with a feather at the Apple Store yesterday when my phone linked to the The Bos in the Washington Post, presenting at 2018 AGU, and pimping to the world: The Taurids are a threat! The […]

Saginaw Bay fingered by gravity data as ice impact feature

Davias and Harris at Cintos.org vindicated

December 22, 2018

Wow. The cascade of stupefying new discoveries continues. A paper published today in the Journal of Great Lakes Research provides evidence from gravity anomalies that Saginaw Bay in Michigan is a remnant feature of an impact into an ancient ice sheet. This and the recent discovery of Hiawatha Crater make for an interesting configuration. But […]

Always a bride's maid...

Science has named nine scientific advances as runners-up for the 2018 Breakthrough of the Year.

December 21, 2018

Seriously, it is really cool to see Science Magazine name Hiawatha Crater as 2018 breakthrough story runner up — and with due reference to the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. The crater will be an intellectual gift that keeps on giving, and its better days are ahead. So I will go ahead and nominate the article […]

Tusk appears with Serpentine Siblings

December 16, 2018

From my new friends, Brothers of the Serpent  Episode #078: George Howard We have a very special episode for all you snake sibs out there, we interviewed Mr. George Howard, who has been involved with the Comet Research Group from the very beginning in the work on the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis, which we have spoken […]
