... account of a telephone conversation with a caller to the Yerkes Observatory, held during his graduate school days in Chicago. Sagan does both voices, his own and that of his inebriated caller: And the guy at the other end said, "Lemme talk to [an ashtronomer." And I said, "Can I help you?" And he said, "Well, we've got this here garden party in Wilmette, see, and there's shompthin up in the sky...." [Sagan knew that the comet Arend-Roland was visible at the time.So I said, "What you're probably looking at is the comet." There was a big pause. And he said, "Whash a comet?" "A comet is a big snowball a mile across." (3) Then there was an immense pause, and then he said, "Lemme talk to a real ashtronomer." (4) So the reason I've mentioned that is because what a comet is is not, you know, greatly appreciated. Of ...

... solar system partially turning itself inside out," said Brownlee, the lead author among 183 on the primary paper detailing the first research results from the Stardust mission, published in the Dec. 15 edition of the journal Science. Brownlee is a coauthor of the other six papers on Stardust results being published in Science, which also are the subject of a news conference and scientific presentations at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Stardust mission was launched in February 1999 and met comet Wild 2 (pronounced Vilt) beyond the orbit of Mars in January 2004. The comet formed more than 4.5 billion years ago and had remained preserved in the frozen reaches of the outer solar system until 1974 when a close encounter with Jupiter shifted the comet's orbit to a path between Mars and Jupiter. After a 2.88 billion-mile journey, Stardust returned to Earth last January with a payload of thousands of tiny particles from Wild 2. Among the biggest surprises, Brownlee said, was finding material that formed in the hottest part of ...

... of such heavenly bodies in ancient texts are rejected as exaggerated products of the imagination. Predominantly, the so-called "hair" or "tail" stars(2) were viewed as harbingers of misfortune and wars, of plague and famine. Varied indeed are the names by which they were known to the peoples of antiquity: they range from "circling star" or "great star" to the "ray" and "torch" to the Biblical "Angel of the Lord". The Greeks first gave them the name "comet" (the "hairy one") by which they are still referred to today. Not always was a comet a harbinger of misfortune: for the victor of a battle it must have become a symbol of luck if it was visible in the sky during that time. Mithridates VI, the Great, king of the Pontic Empire, had a comet depicted on his coins (as did, incidentally, Caesar on the coins that were minted during his time) because in the year of his birth, 134 B.C. ...

77. GODS FIRE: [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: contact@quantavolution.org TABLE OF CONTENTS GODS FIRE Moses and the Management of Exodus by Alfred de Grazia CHAPTER THREE CATASTROPHE AND DIVINE FIRES If the Israelites did not know that a great comet was visiting disaster upon the Earth, they would be the only people in the world from whom the knowledge was withheld. In fact, they did know. And they called it by god-names just as everybody else did in those days. But it is also true that a peculiar kind of suppression of cometary evidence is present in the Israelite record, for which there is an explanation. In Chapter 1, I offered several pieces of evidence that the Israelites knew a comet was in the sky, and that the disasters on Earth were from heaven, and, furthermore, that the Lord bore them "on Eagle's wings" from Egypt. (See Figure 6) More evidence is due here. I must reason out the position as well. Was the whole world electrified beyond any later historical awareness? Is there an alternative to the comet: could there ...

... an excess current of positive charge in the solar wind which emanates from the Sun. These included: 1) the formation of a "stellar capacitor" around stellar objects undergoing nuclear fusion in their atmospheres (the negatively charged stellar object is surrounded by rings and a doughnut shaped nebular cloud of ionized dust, molecules, and ions, forming an electrical capacitor which may discharge under certain conditions). 2) comets are asteroidal bodies (not ice balls) which discharge this stellar capacitor, developing a net negative electrical charge. The comet nucleus attracts quantities of dust and ions, forming the visible comet tail. The physics of these processes and the myriad of observed cometary phenomena are explained in Part I of this paper. 3) comet nuclei are captured by the solar system at random time intervals and evolve into the planets, moons and asteroids. Comets are accumulating matter and are not melting away as suggested by the ice ball comet model (IBCM). Only rarely do comet nuclei reach planetary dimensions. The members of the solar system have varying ages. ...

... a distinguished astronomer who studied this system in the 1950s. According to Oort, this cloud reaches out to something less than half the distance of the nearest stars to us, and it is his idea, widely held, that the cloud has been with us since the formation of the Solar System. It is supposed that shaving encounters between the Solar System and other stars may disturb a few comets from their orbits, and that some of these from time to time come close to the Sun. So, when we observe a comet from the Earth, it is in fact a representative of the huge Oort cloud coming in on a vast orbit from the very outermost reaches of the Solar System. Now, the significance of the giant molecular clouds in the Galaxy is that when the Solar System runs close to them, which it does every 50 million years or so when we cross spiral arms, the Oort cloud is enormously disturbed and we get comets flying in all directions: a veritable flood of them pours into the centre of the Solar System while an ...
