  The Bos is Back! Bos Mum on Mars Update: Coma Just Dust… Elenin: Sliding Spring backing off a bit….. Elenin: Probability of Mars Impact 1-120 or so  These media scientists are just too much. Below is bad astronomer Phil Plait validating the Napier Astronomical Model for the Younger Dryas Impact(s) and refuting The…
  Sliding Spring Update: Getting closer  See 3:40 V. Hippies? Dr. V! I’m getting dragged into the future again. But click above for a fascinating report. It brought to mind: He who shall not be named in Science: Dr. V. If Dr. V had said we might see such a thing in our lifetime…

As far as disputes over ancient impacts are concerned, the hostility that has greeted evidence for the Chiemgau Impacts is exceeded only by that received by the Younger Dryas Boundary hypothesis. But like the YDB team the Germans have soldiered on and continue to publish more detailed evidence to an increasingly quiet room:   Germans Find…

But why not France, Bos!? The news release   Independent investigators have failed to confirm the reports of enhanced concentrations of spherules and platinum-group elements in YD boundary sediments. Boslough, Surovell et al., January 30, 2013, Arguments and Evidence Against a Younger Dryas Impact Event      Interhemispheric evidence of a cosmic impact 12.9…
Dear Mr. Singer: Sandia Labs issued a news release on January 30, 2013, with a passage that requires a satisfactory explanation or I believe Sandia Labs has libeled myself [sic] and others researching the Younger Dryas Boundary Impact hypothesis. In the release, titled “Study rebuts hypothesis that comet attacks ended 13,000-year-old Clovis culture,” Sandia Labs published the following quote…

  Update: As published in PNAS in July, 2013  “The [Younger Dryas Boundary] theory has reached zombie status,” said Professor Andrew Scott from the Department of Earth Sciences at Royal Holloway. “Whenever we are able to show flaws and think it is dead [!], it reappears with new, equally unsatisfactory, arguments. [Sniff!] – “January 30,…

The banner image above is Comet 73/P Schwassman-Wachmann fragmenting in orbit  ABSTRACT Intersection with the debris of a large (50-100 km) short-period comet during the Upper Palaeolithic provides a satisfactory explanation for the catastrophe of celestial origin which has been postulated to have occurred around 12900 BP, and which pre-saged a return to ice…

   [See comments: Boslough responds!] Boslough et al’s recent paper gives no less than nine separate citations to Todd Surovell’s 2009 publication: An independent evaluation of the Younger Dryas extra-terrestrial hypothesis. The multiple references are not surprising given that the Surovell paper has become a totem of Boslough and other’s crusade to end research into the Younger Dryas…
