1. The Great Comet Venus [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon III:5 (May 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents The Great Comet Venus David Talbott Venus in myth and science The planet Venus is Earth's closest planetary neighbor, moving on an orbit 108 million kilometers (67 million miles) from the Sun. Modern astronomers have always believed that Venus, evolving within its own enclave in the solar system, has followed its present path for countless millions of years. Working under this assumption most planetary scientists believed-- until the 1960's-- that Venus might be very much like the Earth, and many scientists speculated freely on the possibilities of life on Venus. (1) But the space age brought more than a few surprises. Instead of an earth-like environment, astronomers discovered an incredibly violent planet, a seething, volcanic cauldron-- and a host of paradoxes yet to be unraveled. The mythical Venus-image presents many paradoxes as well. In the popular imagination, Venus means something like "the love goddess," and many authorities connect the very name of the planet-goddess with feminine charm. ...

Linear was not the “dirty snowball” of modern comet lore. In September 1999, the LINEAR telescope in New Mexico detected a comet out beyond the orbit of Jupiter, speeding toward the Sun. Because it was the first instrument to see it, the comet received its name from the telescope. Linear was estimated to be about a mile wide. As it approached its perihelion in July 2000, many telescopes — ...

McCanney PREFACE TO PART II Part I (KRONOS IX:1, Fall 1983, pp. 17-39) presented critiques of the ice ball comet model (IBCM) and nebular collapse theory of the origin of the solar system (OSS) and argued that these "accepted" theories fall short of explaining numerous observed phenomena. Part I also introduced a new theory for comet behavior and solar system evolution based on the capture of comets. Comets were postulated to be discharges of a solar capacitor, the capacitor forming with the negatively charged Sun surrounded by a doughnut shaped nebular cloud of ionized dust and gases lying past the orbit of Pluto. Cometary discharges could also occur between the Sun and ionized matter of the zodiacal disc which rings the Sun. The major theoretical result was that charged comet nuclei ...

Comets without water on their nucleus will invalidate a lot more than obsolete comet theory. In 2005, a lot of reputations, multi-million dollar research projects, and scientific institutions --including NASA itself --will suffer catastrophically if the planned Deep Impact mission produces the “surprises” expected by Wallace Thornhill, a leading theorist of the electric comet hypothesis. The Deep Impact craft is scheduled for launch between January 12 and January 28, 2005. Its mission is an unprecedented encounter with a comet nucleus. The target is Comet Tempel 1. NASA plans to fire an 820-pound copper "impactor" toward the nucleus, which is expected ...

The “smaller” comet (lower left in the picture above), subsequently became more active and brighter than the larger. And that was only the beginning. In 1883, twelve years after the Chicago fire, Ignatius Donnelly published a widely read book, Ragnarok: the Rain of Fire and Gravel. Though the book dealt primarily with the evidence for cometary disasters in ancient times, Donnelly suggested that the Chicago fire provided a small glimpse of the terror experienced by our earlier ancestors. “There is reason to believe that the present generation has passed through the gaseous prolongation of a comet's tail, and that hundreds of human beings lost their lives ...

... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 1 (Fall 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part I) J. M. McCANNEY Copyright (c) 1981& 1983 by J. M. McCanney ABSTRACT: This paper provides an alternate theory for comet behavior and shows comets to be planetary, lunar, and asteroidal bodies in their formative stages. It demonstrates that tail matter is attracted towards an asteroidal comet nucleus by strong electrical forces. Additionally, two charging mechanisms are identified, both of which produce a net negative charge on the comet nucleus. This is supported by data from recent space probes. Comet wandering, sunward spikes, a shrinkage of the coma as the comet approaches the Sun, curved tails, the gathering and maintenance of meteoroid streams, spiralling of tail material, and the rapid orbital circularization of large newly captured comets are also discussed. Earlier papers(1, 2, 3) used similar concepts to predict the existence of strong electrical fields in the vicinity of ...

The Monograph includes an hour-long DVD introducing various aspects of the Electric Universe explained by members of the Thunderbolts Group. More Information Book Synopsis Read Chapter One Order Link Feb 14, 2006 Deep Impact — Where ’ s the Water? Early in the morning of July 4, 2005, cosmic fireworks occurred millions of miles from Earth. NASA had planned the event to clear up some longstanding mysteries about comets. But what actually happened defied every expectation of the comet experts. About 24 hours earlier, the Deep Impact spacecraft had fired an 800-pound copper projectile at the nucleus of Comet Tempel 1. The impact was expected to eject large volumes of subsurface material into space, and we were assured that the material would be dominated by water. The presence of abundant volatiles, preeminently water ice sublimating in the heat of the Sun, is an essential requirement of standard comet theory. Without cometary ices, it is the “dirty snowball” theory that would evaporate. How could comets produce their ...

It is now the name of a spacecraft scheduled to depart later this month for an unprecedented encounter with a comet nucleus. And not just a quiet rendezvous, but an explosive meeting in space. The object of the mission is Comet Tempel 1, which the Deep Impact craft should reach when the comet is some 133 million km (83 million miles) from Earth. If all goes as planned, the craft will launch an 370 kg (820-pound) copper "impactor" toward the nucleus, striking the surface at about 23,000 miles per hour. According to NASA scientists, the result should be a release of energy equivalent to that of ...

The images above, captured by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, are the best pictures yet of an event that has astronomers scratching their heads. The comet Schwassmann-Wachmann 3, otherwise known as Comet 73P, is disintegrating in front of their eyes. But what is the cause of this extraordinary event?
