I’m putting the recent papers concerning Covid from Space from Steele, Wickramasinghe, et al. here together for the time being; and will be developing a bibliography along the lines of The Bib for the YDIH soon. Stay tuned… We propose that the new coronavirus which first appeared in the Hubei province of China was probably linked […]
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.
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.
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.
Chandra Wickramasinghe, Current Science, November 25, 2019
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.”
