Leading scientist predicted pandemic on November 25th, 2019

Q&A on Coronavirus and #diseasefromspace with Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe

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.

A 3rd communication with Wickramasinghe on Coronavirus from space

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

Update: Tusk sends protest letter to 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 […]

Coronavirus from Space?

A heterodox communication from Chandra Wickramasinghe to the Lancet

Update: Tusk sends protest letter to Space.com 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 […]

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 […]

The Plait Affair: Gross contempt for one's better

Wickramasinghe and Sir Fred Hoyle Plait #1 Plait #2 Plait #3 Rebuttal Space plankton at ProfChandra Though Panspermia is not the focus of this blog, I consider the theory and body of evidence a friendly intellectual cousin to the Tusk’s Coherent Catastrophism and worthy of defense on the same grounds. Both philosophies (to use the old term) […]

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 […]

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 […]
