Chandra Wickramasinghe, Cambridge ('60), Member of the Order of the British Empire ('22), cancelled for life lecture at Durham University: A Tusk Investigation

Tusk buddy Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe was gleefully invited by Durham University to give an evening lecture this April on the origin of life. And was cancelled today without courtesy or explanation. Queen Elizabeth II thought well enough of Chandra to appoint him, the year she died, to be a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE). Read the invitation and cancellation below for…

Chandra Wickramasinghe on the NASA Mars announcement

The Tusk is honored to maintain a digital acquaintance with distinguished Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, who in the 1970’s with Sir Fred Hoyle established — and to my mind proved — the theory of Panspermia. We had been corresponding concerning the jaw dropping recent genetic study, when NASA announced today’s press conference. I asked Dr. C to provide a statement for the…

International Space Station: Window scum supports Wickramasinghe and Sir Fred's long contention of teeming life in space

The space station is orbiting the earth in a total vacuum, there is no air, so it is a total defiance of the laws of physics to say these organisms were blown into space from Earth. ‘The only explanation is that they have come from elsewhere in space, and this supports long-held theories that plankton, and therefore all life on Earth including humans, originated from organisms in…

Wickramasinghe: Death from Above

Check out this great summary paper from the irrepressible Chandra Wickramasinghe.  Wickramasinghe just keeps going and going and going — even without his side-kick Sir Fred Hoyle. Hoyle and Wickramasinghe’s decades-old contention that life evolved in space and spreads via comets is convincing to me.  Not only do they have substantial data indicating this to be the case, it just…

An Open Letter on Panspermia

The Tusk tossed the following question to the Dark Horse Podcast in hopes that the dynamic duo of Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein will address Panspermia in an upcoming show. They are the PERFECT intellectuals to investigate and speak to the work of Hoyle and Wickramasinghe. I have submitted the question to them on Patreon and Twitter. June 10, 2022 Dear Heather and Bret, I love you two and have…
