12. Focus [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 6 No 2 (Aug 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Focus When Is a Comet Not A Comet? source: NEW SCIENTIST 20/27.12.84, pp.46-48 An asteroid about 3km in diameter is being studied with great interest as it is the first object to exhibit characteristics which indicate that it is a transitional stage between a comet and an asteroid. Asteroid 1983TB was first identified in October 1983 and approached close to Earth in December 1984. There will be another near-miss encounter in December 1987, but we are assured (in true unshakeable Earth fashion) no collision is possible for another 250 years, and even then the comet is more likely to be thrown clear of Earth due to the gravitational influence of the latter. Current theory has it that comets are just dust-covered snowballs surrounded by a gaseous envelope which is gradually stripped away at every close approach to the Sun. The theory allows that comets may evolve: by losing only the smallest dust particles and retaining the larger ones as an outer insulating layer protecting the icy core from sublimation ...

13. Velikovsky And Planetary Catastrophe [SIS Internet Digest $]
... in terms of celestial motions today. Velikovsky contended that the planet Venus, just a few thousand years ago, possessed a spectacular, comet-like "tail" and its orbit intersected that of the Earth. Though Velikovsky's interest in the subject began with a reading of biblical accounts of the Exodus period, the plagues of Egypt, and the spectacles of the wandering in the desert, what led to his startling conclusions was a thorough cross-referencing with global myths of disaster- stories in which the agent of catastrophe takes the form of a great comet or flaming dragon, a body consistently identified with the planet Venus. Velikovsky also argued that the planet Mars, in the eighth and seventh centuries before the present era, moved on an erratic course, disrupting the Earth. Celestial upheavals caused by the unstable movements of Mars, according to Velikovsky, are the true reason why Mars appears in ancient records as a great war god, shaking the heavens and producing general pestilence and devastation. Additionally, in a brief unpublished manuscript, Velikovsky made an extraordinary claim about the planet Saturn ...

... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XI:1 (Jan 1989) Home¦ Issue Contents The Birth and Odyssey of Halley's Comet: From 2484 B.C. to the Present Time Donald Wesley Patten and Samuel Ronald Windsor Halley's Comet is the most famous of the approximately 130 short-term comets in our solar system. Its average orbital period is 76.7 years, varying between 74 and 79 years. Variations in its orbit result from gravitational attraction to the planets, and their changing positions, with Jupiter being the most influential. The 1986 close look at Halley's Comet provided some certainty about its construction: it is composed of ice. It is not an "ice ball," but rather is fragment-shaped with dimensions of 5 1/ 2 miles by 6 1/ 4 miles x 10 miles. Halley's Comet has a flashy tail which can stretch out 100 million miles across the cosmos. When the Earth is positioned in autumn at the time of the comet's "arrival," the tail can present a spectacular display indeed as it rounds the Sun in perihelion. Particulars. ...

15. When Comets Break Apart [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us picture of the day archive subject index subject abstracts Comet West in its most dramatic display in March, 1976 Aug 25, 2006 When Comets Break Apart The unexpected breakup of comets, some at considerable distances from the Sun, has long baffled comet researchers. But there is no mystery if comets are solid bodies discharging electrically as they move into regions of different charge in the Sun ’ s electric field. In 1976, Comet West never approached closer than 30 million kilometers from the Sun. So when a disruption occurred and the comet split into four fragments (subsequent to the display pictured above), astronomers were shocked. More recently, the explosive break up of Comet Linear in the summer of 2000 provoked even greater amazement. The event occurred well over a hundred million kilometers from the Sun. In fact, eighty percent of comets that split do so when they are far from the Sun, according to Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan, authors of the book Comet ...

Mutchler and Z. Levay (STScI) Nov 30, 2006 Comet Schwassman-Wachmann 3 Disintegrates (2) Predictions of the Electric Model (Note: TPOD originally ran on May 08, 2006) Worldwide telescopic observations continue to record the catastrophic dissolution of Comet Schwassman-Wachmann 3, offering critical tests of both the standard model and its alternative, the electric comet. Modern instruments are finding secrets of comets that throw accepted theory into turmoil. The appearance of each comet is followed by the appearance of new, often contradictory, models. And rather than help to reconcile the competing and mutually contradictory models, each new discovery seems only to add to the gap between prior theory and actual discovery. Any theory seeking to explain comet behavior must account for the defining attributes of comets. And one peculiarity now on the minds of cometologists is the unpredictable ...

The stunning discovery of X-ray emissions from the visitor was a milestone in comet science, as was the discovery that the comet's coherent and filamentary ion tail spanned more than 350 million miles. Credit: NASA Sep 06, 2006 The Comet and the Future of Science Though NASA officials have said nothing on the subject, astronomy today is on the edge of a critical shift in perception — a revolution that could redefine our view of the heavens. Proponents of the “Electric Universe” say that a revolution in the sciences is inescapable, and they believe the failure of modern comet theory could be the tipping point. The high-energy events exhibited by comets require a new understanding of what makes a comet work, and the answer to the mystery of comets will invariably affect all of the space sciences. For starters, a list of the enigmas would have to include ...
