Panspermia

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

Cosmos Magazine yanks great article on Disease from Space

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, “Virus, ET and the […]

Coronavirus, Panspermia, and Disease from Space

A collection of recent papers

I’m beginning an effort to provide a very recent Bib for the work of Steele, Wickramasinghe, et al. We propose that the new coronavirus which first appeared in the Hubei province of China was probably linked to the arrival of a pure culture of the virus contained in cometary debris that was dispersed over a […]

Press release on Coronavirus from Space

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.

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. 

Infectious microbes inside cosmic dust collected from OUTSIDE surface of Space Station windows

ISS window swipes provide evidence for life in outer space

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

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. Days since the New York genome […]

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.

Wickramasinghe speaks with Biocivilizations.com about Panspermia and Pandemic

Another profound interview

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe is best known for his work on the modern version of the panspermia theory – life in the form of microbes has the cosmic origin – conceived and developed in collaboration with his PhD supervisor and a long-term collaborator, the great astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle (1915-2001).

Viral info from Wickramasinghe

Cambridge scholar and cosmic life propopent dishes on the deal

The entry of microbes and viruses is discussed in an appendix in diseases from space.  Whilst large fragments like pebbles and millimetre-sized bits get heated as they enter the atmosphere at speeds of 10km/s, and many burn as meteors, smaller structures survive.  For example an atom or molecule survives and even a virus coated with a submicron sized coating survives high speed entry.

The most informative podcast in history

Kyle and Russ Allen snake the truth from the jaw of ignorance

The Tusk helped arrange a podcast between some dear friends this weekend and made an unexpected cameo at the end. Cambridge scholar Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe provided a detailed explanation of the evidence for space as the principle vector for viruses, after a stupefying explanation of where we come from — and how we got here.

Wickramasinghe warns of Cosmic Pandemic on November 25, 2019

On the basis of this data, there appears to be a prima facie case for expecting new viral strains to emerge over the coming months and so it would be prudent for Public Health Authorities the world over to be vigilant and prepared for any necessary action. We need hardly to be reminded that the spectre of the 1918 devastating influenza pandemic stares us in the face from across a century.

Space.com libels Wickramasinghe

Tusk sends letter of protest to editor, hopes to avoid litigation

To the Editor of Space.com: I am writing to protest misinformation in your article, “No, the coronavirus didn’t come from outer space. We promise” [March 16, 2020, Space.com], and demand an immediate published retraction and apology to the subject of your article, Dr. Wickramasinghe.

A 3rd communication with Wickramasinghe on Coronavirus from space

Junior scientist Graham Lau plays pseudoscience card on veteran Nature author on Space.com

Dr. Wickramsinghe was kind again to share some preprint journal articles and original communications today with the Tusk. See below and earlier posts concerning Wickramasinghe et al. and Coronavirus from space.
Last night, sciencey talk pup Graham Lau took a real shot at Dr. C in a terribly written article by Chelsea Gohd in Space.com with zero balance. The clearly ignorant bro-bearded poser had the gaul to accuse Chandra Wickramasinghe of “pseudoscience.”

Coronavirus from Space?

A heterodox communication from Chandra Wickramasinghe to the Lancet

As regulars know, this is the 2nd communication this week from living scientific martyr Dr. Chanda Wickramasinghe to the Tusk, and this one is perhaps the more pressing.
Chandra’s note below, shared first on the Tusk, is to the prestigious medical journal The Lancet and a technical communication concerning the increasingly global scourge of Coronavirus. Virology ain’t my thing, but Chandra is very well published on the subject, and indeed authored a book concerning Disease from Space way back in 1981.

Claim Jumper

Avi Loeb and Amir Siraj poach ground long settled by Hoyle and Wickramasinghe

The Tusk has a flip-side fascination to my obsession with cosmic impact and extinctions: Life on earth and how it got here. Looking into the life story makes a nice yen to the yang of the death story. So I have been fortunate over the years to develop a digital acquaintance and enjoy occasional correspondence […]

Chandra Wickramasinghe on the NASA Mars announcement

Panspermia increasingly vindicated

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 […]
