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.
It immediately reminded me of the Plait Affair of 2013, another shameless example of gross contempt for one’s better.
The only thing I could conclude after reading the article was how reckless and disregardful Space.com was with the easily known facts concerning Dr. Wickramasinghe’s long-standing good name as a scientist, not to mention the damage this will do to Chandra and his estate’s earning potential.
I’m playing golf soon with a lawyer buddy who specializes in press libel and related matters. Can’t wait to hear what he thinks.
