... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home | Issue Contents Comets, Polular Culture, and the Birth of Modern Cosmology by Sara Genuth (Princeton, 1997) Reviewed by Ev Cochrane Few things in life are as memorable and charged with unconscious emotion as the appearance of a brilliant comet. From time immemorial, comets have inspired dread and been associated with ominous portents. Ancient Babylonian astronomical texts link comets to the death of kings and other calamities. Similar views were common among the Greeks and Romans. Of a comet that appeared during Nero's reign, Tacitus wrote as follows: "A comet blazed into view- in the opinion of the crowd, an apparition ...

25. When Venus Was A Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XII No. 1 (Winter 1987) Home | Issue Contents When Venus Was A Comet Ev Cochrane and David Talbott INTRODUCTION For the past several years, the world had been anxiously awaiting the arrival of history's most famous comet, that named after Edmund Halley. In anticipation of this rare event, a number of books were rushed into print; ocean cruises were organized intent on optimum viewing, while hundreds of "souvenirs" flooded the market. A casual observer of the Halley phenomenon might well wonder why all this fuss over a "celestial snowball". Aside from the obvious scientific importance of Halley's visit, the fact is that mankind has always ...

... 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 ...
27. Velikovsky and the Decline of Medieval Cosmology [Articles]
... is so small that these tidal effects are really not too important. The planets will get pulled around a little in their orbits as they run close to a giant molecular cloud. But far more important are the effects on another part of the Solar System which you are not so familiar with, but which is there. These are the comets. The Solar System has got carrying along with it a cloud of comets which is known as the Oort Cloud, named after a very distinguished astronomer who studied this cloud in the 1950's. He more or less wrapped up this cloud as everybody thought, i.e . he provided a theory for it, and that theory has ...

29. Death of a Comet: Shoemaker-Levy 9 Hits Jupiter [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1994 No 2 (Dec 1994) Home | Issue Contents Monitor Special Death of a Comet: Shoemaker-Levy 9 Hits Jupiter Well, after all the speculation, the fragments of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 did collide with Jupiter during the week of 16th-22nd July 1994. Now everyone knows that in our safe, stable Solar System, worlds can and do collide - and when they do the results are pretty spectacular. According to the Baltimore Evening Sun (15th July), statistically a repeat of the 1908 Tunguska explosion is likely in the next several hundred years. Chandra Wickramasinghe of the University of Wales at Cardiff predicted that the appearance of Jupiter would be ...

Napier, The Origin of Comets (Pergamon Press: New York) 1990 Reviewed by Joel Canepa If there is any middle ground that can be navigated between those who believe the Solar System has remained essentially unchanged for billions of years and those who opt for cosmic changes in the System within the memory of man, one could perhaps find it in the theoretical scenario proposed by Victor Clube and Bill Napier. Their theory propounds the occurrence of cataclysmic events, caused by extraterrestrial phenomena, within historical times. More specifically, they theorize that the Taurid ...
