... . Interestingly, the plasmoid discharged to the sphere at intervals. It appears plausible that this is the mechanism behind the Sun's cough, or Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). The powerful solar discharge lofts matter from the lower corona out to where it is picked up at 6 solar radii and accelerated by the solar electric field. The laboratory plasmoid also exhibited multiple strikes after the stored energy built to some critical breakdown level. This too is observed with CME's. I quote from the article by Quinn& Fiorito in the Journal of Geophysical Research, Vol. 72, No. 5, March 1, 1967, pp. 1611-1630; "The arcs themselves fall into two categories. The first type, which appeared to be the most violent and rapid, is a bright white arc usually found between 70 latitude, lasting the order of hundreds of milliseconds and following a magnetic field line. The point of precipitation may be in either hemisphere or both for any given arc." In this context, note well the paragraph just before "the Solar Wind" ...

... and that that there have not been> 360-day years. I quote: "I am skeptical about the validity of the counts [of coral growth rings. The growth lines vary in spacing from a few microns to nearly zero, and it is often difficult to decide whether one should be counted or not. Under these circumstances, it is notorious that total counts come out at what the investigators think they should be. The subjectiveness of such counts is highlighted by a report by R. G. Hipkin, an Edinburgh University geophysicist, that he counted 253 ridges and later 359 ridges in a repeat count of the same specimen. [Footnote 29: S.

... large meteorite) Tsunami deposits (if ocean/ sea impact) Abrupt changes in regional fauna flora (which would be detectable in the Holocene and Late Pleistocene) These types of evidence are discussed by: http://earth.agu.org/revgeophys/claeys00/claeys00.html When the sky Fell on our heads: Identification and interpretation of impact products in the sedimentary record by Nikos Drakos, CBLU, University of Leeds U.S. National Report to IUGG, 1991-1994, Rev. Geophys. Vol. 33 Suppl., (c) 1995 American Geophysical Union. The big problem with the dinosaur extinction by meteorite impact theory was that 45 years ago people did not know what the signature for a large meteorite or comet impact would look like. Regardless of whether the Chicxulube impact caused the extinction of the dinosaurs, geologists now know what to look for in terms of evidence indicating such an impact. However, even though the Holocene- Late Pleistocene record is much more better preserved and accessible and has been as intensively studied as, if not more than, the Cretaceous- Tertiary ...

... explain another mysterious earthly phenomena, this time in the realm of lightning- red sprites and blue jets. There were reports in 1990 of low-light TV cameras capturing discharges, later dubbed "blue jets", originating 14km above the Earth over storm clouds, rising like fountains another 20km into the stratosphere. There followed a report, published in New Scientist of 19 August, 1995, p.34: "...in the summer of 1994, using two aircraft flying about 50 kilometres apart, they [Davis Sentman and Eugene Wescott of the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska in Fairbanks caught the first colour videos of sprites at work. ''The flashes look like the Fourth of July, like Roman candles with fountains," says Sentman. Observing the same sprites from two different directions allowed Sentman and Wescott to work out their altitudes and dimensions for the first time. ''Prior to that other groups had speculated they go up to 40 kilometres, maybe 50, tops," Sentman recalls. "It was stretching the imagination too far to speculate they might go all the ...

If 20 to 40 ton cosmic snowballs pelt Earth as claimed by Frank and Sigwarth [1997a, dark pixels will be produced in the 130.4 nm images of dayglow obtained by the Ultraviolet Imager (UVI) on the Polar spacecraft. Examination of the UVI images has revealed that dayglow images are indeed spotted with single and multiple dark pixels. But is a snowball the only explanation for these dark pixels? To learn more about the dark pixels, we have examined the calibration images obtained from the same camera just before the instrument was launched. We find that dark pixels similar to those in dayglow images also exist in calibration images. This strongly indicates that ...

... inconsistencies combined with exaggeration of the results which fit their theory as well as in easy detectable highly speculative abstract theoretical assumptions which are the basis for "modeling" of the events. It is important to keep truck of the diminishing probability of the wishful final result after each additional assumption and unanswered contradiction. Common Sense Vs Martian Origin of SNC "Perfect Match" of Analyses. Atmospheric analyses made by Viking landers were used as the best proof of SNC's Martian origin. The biggest proponent of Martian theory H. McSween in Reviews of Geophysics vol 23, 1985 admits "The ONLY EVIDENCE that ties SNC meteorites directly to Mars is the composition of gases in impact melt glasses of the EETA79001 and ALHA77005" "Martians" by Exclusion. Another main cornerstone of SNC Martian origin is their "young age". It is assumed (the most misleading and widely advertised assumption) that "young" meteorites may be originated only from planetary body and specifically from Mars by exclusion of other planets. By the same logic ALL SNC must be from Mars (except ALH8001) ...
200. Doubt Cast on Frank's Small-comet Theory [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:1 (June 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Doubt Cast on Frank's Small-comet Theory 27 January 1998 The small-comet hypothesis: An upper limit to the current impact rate on the Moon. J.A. Grier*& A.S. McEwen. Geophysical Research Letters, 1997, Vol.24, No.24, pp.3105-3108. *University of Arizona, Lunar& Planetary Lab, Tucson, AZ 85721. Frank et al. [1986b and Frank and Sigwarth [1993 hypothesized the intense bombardment of the terrestrial atmosphere by small comets. Their model requires that the Moon is impacted by small comets (10(7 )-10(8) g) at a rate of almost one per minute. We calculate that an object of this mass, even with an exceedingly low density and relatively low velocity, will nevertheless produce a crater at least 50m in diameter. These craters will excavate immature lunar soil and produce a very bright spot with a diameter of at least 150 m. If low-density comets exist that might not create deep craters [O'Keefe and Ahrens, ...
