Panspermia

Microbes entombed in cosmic dust collected from OUTSIDE surface of Space Station window

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, fungi, and the like) are raining more or less constantly into the atmosphere from…

Second suspected Greenland crater announced by NASA

See other, non-prescient, contemporaneous coverage here: NBC:  Immense crater may have been found deep under Greenland’s ice sheet PhysOrg: NASA finds possible second impact crater under…

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…

Half a loaf from B612: Asteroid data from nuke blast detectors calls out faulty impact assumptions; older impact data ignored; nothing new

Live updates and edits underway Press release from B612 Foundation UPDATE:  B612 Impact Video 4-20-14 H264 from D Josh Rosen on Vimeo. The Tusk works mightily to avoid speculating about future cosmic impacts at the expense of reporting evidence for such events in the human past, but recent news intervenes once more. Tomorrow the wires will hopefully buzz with the B612 Foundation‘s…

Again, again, again, again -- and AGAIN!: Jupiter impacts continue to defy NASA estimates

LIVE UPDATE:  See here to watch tonight for the potential scar of the impact. The Tusk focuses laser-like on impacts experienced by ancient humans. But when called for, I share items from current events that prove our thesis that the rate of cosmic collisions is far greater than generally acknowledged by science (and NASA). Yesterday the impossibly improbable happened once more on…

Breaking: WISE mission misleads public with confusing comet stats

In my day work I am no stranger to government bureaucracies and “programs” manipulating information about their activities until it suits them to do otherwise.  The WISE mission is no different. In March of this year David Shiga wrote an obviously informed article revealing early results of the WISE mission (below).  Six weeks into WISE’s work, someone revealed to Shiga (I…
