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

Wonderful 2009 show available again -- but watch quickly!
It seems like a lazy cheat to post YouTube videos two weeks in a row, instead of writing in-depth subject articles on the Tusk. But who has the time for that? And anyway the video below is a particularly special communication. It is special because WGBH\PBS no longer stream this 2009 episode on their…
Hmmm...
Avi Loeb is no household name, but he wants to be. The chairman of the Department of Astronomy at Harvard has appeared on more than 50 podcasts since the start of the year. Given a minimum of one hour per podcast, I’d ask for a week’s pay back if I were Harvard. The guy…
Internet wag zeros in on real science
This is a priceless video spoof concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. And surprisingly, it is directed at the most timely part of the actual debate — the most recent attack on the hypothesis from Sun et al. — which it manages to DESTROY. https://t.co/WQtQFoDsRk — George Howard (@CosmicTusk) February 6, 2021…
Bill Napier's work to warn of increased risk described by Evan Gough of Universe Today
In a nutshell, Napier’s study shows how comets are likely to fragment and lose considerable mass during encounters with the inner Solar System. The debris trail can expand to a cross section larger than Earth, increasing the odds of impacts with Earth. Also, the debris has considerable impact energy. But over time, that energy…
Life and disease in space confirmed by Russians in 2018
In 2018, on January 23, Russia was first to publish the discovery of space based life obtained by appropriate technical means in a collaborative international scientific effort. Based on genes swiped with a tampon from the OUTSIDE of an International Space Station window, three respected Russian laboratories, and twelve well-credentialed scientists, published a peer-reviewed…
New media creatives share the adventure
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…
Tusk racks up two co-author citations PER WEEK in 2020
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…
PBS includes the cosmic cataclysm, and Jim Kennett explains it
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…
Covid from Space team summarizes the science
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….
Excellent content piling up on the Younger Dryas Impact Event
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…
Avi Loeb and Manasvi Lingam re-write science history to eliminate modern founders of astrobiology
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…
From Steele, Wickramasinghe, Howard et al.
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…
Dr. Wickramasinghe explains it all in new video
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….
