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.

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 […]

Pro-science skeptic Dr. Marc Defant now supporting #YDIH based on Powell book

June 8, 2020

Dr. Marc Defant did a great thing this morning by announcing on Twitter and his blog that he had come around to support the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. As I told Marc, my respect for his intellectual integrity soared when I saw his tweet.

Gross contempt for one's better Part II: The Cockell Affair

Charles Cockell re-writes history; Willfully ignores founders of Astrobiology

May 30, 2020

Charles S. Cockell deeply injured his discipline and reputation in an upcoming June editorial in Astronomy and Geophysics from the Royal Astronomical Society. His objective in the piece was to review the history of Astrobiology, yet he fails to reference the founders of the modern field: Sir Fred Hoyle and Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe.

"Viruses, ET, and the octopus from space: The return of panspermia"

Cosmos Magazine yanks great article on Disease from Space

May 26, 2020

UPDATE: Article back up!? The single best article I have read on Panspermia and its corollary, Disease from Space, was written just two years ago. An Australian lecturer and writer named Stephen Fleischfresser authored an extraordinary piece in Cosmos, a science publishing platform sponsored by the Royal Institute of Australia. I found the wonderfully titled, […]

Coronavirus, Panspermia, and Disease from Space

A collection of recent papers

May 20, 2020

I’m putting the recent papers concerning Covid from Space from Steele, Wickramasinghe, et al. here together for the time being; and will be developing a bibliography along the lines of The Bib for the YDIH soon. Stay tuned… We propose that the new coronavirus which first appeared in the Hubei province of China was probably linked […]

Weak studies revealed in new book

Press release on Coronavirus from Space

April 28, 2020

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe and his team of researchers believe that the novel coronavirus arrived on meteorites in Oct 2019 and instantaneously infected hundreds of thousands of people through the atmosphere, as meteorites were reported in China, Northern Italy, Michigan in October 2019. This is somewhat at odds with the mainstream assertion that it originated in bats in WUHAN, China. Given this disparity, they went to great lengths to produce a timely research paper to back up their argument.

Deadly Voyager: The Ancient Comet Strike that Changed Earth and Human History

James Lawrence Powell's new book on the #YDI

April 27, 2020

I was excited today to order a newly published book concerned 100% with the Younger Dryas Impact Event. The author is long-tenured and highly respected geologist, college president, museum director and writer, Dr. James Lawrence Powell. The book can be purchased from Amazon here.

Ted on the case

Dr. Steele races to confirm smoking gun for Covid from space

Dr. Ted Steele continues to communicate his heroic effort to compare the genomic sequences of distant Covid-19 infection locations. If the genes show little mutation it could prove the primary infection vector is from above, not handshaking. Unless the intrepid handshaker owned a Gulfstream 6 and managed to press the flesh in several areas of the globe almost simultaneously.

ISS window swipes provide evidence for life in outer space

April 25, 2020

This has been a big couple of years for “UFOs.” Polling says that 33% of Americans believe that intelligent alien life forms have visited our humble planet in visible spacecraft. However, if you ask people if they believe that microbial life forms (bateria, viruses, diatomaceous plankton, tardigrades and the like) are raining more or less […]

Support from China for Covid from Space

Jiangwen Qu of China's Department of Infectious Disease Control joins Wickramasinghe on February Covid chapter

April 19, 2020

I love Jiangwen Qu. He lives on the other side of the planet, I’ve never even traded an email with the guy, but I could hug his neck. Here he is publishing as recently as February 16, 2019 with Dr. Wickramasinghe in a full-throated support of Covid from space. The truth might logically come from […]

Our Cosmic Ancestry in the Stars    

New 2019 book by Chandra Wickramasinghe

If anyone is interested in digging in, here is Dr. Wickramasinghe’s new book in Hardcopy, Kindle and Audio. I admire Chandra for writing something so inspiring, particularly given all the grief he has received over the last 60 years.

Australian immunologist claims cover-up of Covid data proving disease from space

April 16, 2020

I am on a fascinating global email thread concerning disease from space. Dr. Ted Steele a prominent Australian immunologist and frequent co-author with Wickramasinghe contributed an alarming observation this morning.
