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

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.

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.”

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 […]

Recant

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 […]
