171. Orbital Changes [Books]
... the impacts have no influence on the Earth's orbit. It is only the number of days in the astronomical year that is changed. 16. 59 followed by 13 zeros. 17. 4 followed by 14 zeros. 18. Fletcher G. Watson, Between the Planets, 1956, p. 134. 19. Basically, the word meteor' refers to the luminous phenomenon produced by a body travelling at high speed in the Earth's atmosphere. By extension, this word is also applied to any cosmic body traversing our atmosphere without falling on our planet. In this sense, as long as a meteorite has notreached the ground, it is a meteor. 20. Fletcher G ...
172. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of 30 days. We have an almost complete set of intercalary months for the Hammurabi Dynasty which fit very well with the calculated lunar months of the period. They seem to rule out a series of catastrophic events about 860 BC.Moreover, the data for Year 9 are no longer a problem. They tell us that a very large meteor, or perhaps a comet, ended its career on the surface of Venus. (See my article The Pattern of Venus Tablet Solutions' in JACF Vol. 7.) It seems reasonable to suggest that the effect of impact on Venus would be to throw up a large quantity of dark coloured dust into its upper atmosphere, as ...
173. Old Testament Tales [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... used the visit of a comet to reassert the ascendance of the prophethood over the monarchy. And this comet was no distant streak of light in the sky, but one which passed close enough to lay a trail of pestilence which affected a substantial part of the country and killed 70,000 Israelites. Almost each month our planet encounters a meteor shower: prominent among those of the northern hemisphere are the Perseids in August, Taurids in November, and Gemenids in December. Each shower is genetically related to a comet, though the period of the parent comet is much longer than a year. The Leonid shower is connected with the orbits of the Tempel comet (period of 33 ...
174. A Word about the Planetary Debate [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Point One is to establish what we are talking about. Some theorists call it the Saturn problem, but this is unacceptable. Such nomenclature is the result of territorial aggression. I prefer to call it the planetary debate because many planets may be involved; but even that term may be incorrect, for the answer may also involve comets or meteor showers, planetary debris, comet debris, or assorted stellar material, over indeterminate periods of time. The point is that we have no way of knowing what the final solution will be, so it is quite inappropriate to label the question with the name of any single planet. Point Two is that there are many theorists in the ...

176. The Birth of Athena [Journals] [Aeon]
... earth from Olympus together with the palladium. (35) Such traditions, in all likelihood, reflect an attempt- only minimally successful- to distinguish between Electra and the comet-like palladium. In the original myth the goddess and the comet-like palladium were one and the same. At this point the question arises: Granted that the Greeks chose a meteoric stone- the palladium- to symbolize Athena, why is it that the palladium was said to represent the goddess as a warrior? Athena: Warrior-Goddess It was Hesiod who described Athena as "dread rouser of battle-strife, unwearied leader of the host, a mistress who delights in the clamorous cry of war and battle and slaughter." ...
177. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... The Persian kings had married Armenians and, if modern historians are right, these people would have been living in caves! Alexander the Great took historians with him and we should pay attention to them. Saheb wanted to know what was Great' about Alexander, who wrought so much destruction? After tea, Milton Zysman gave his views about meteor showers and the Pleiades etc. He suggested that these are witnessed when the Earth passes through showers which are the remaining debris of a comet or comets. What were the visual effects? What would it actually look like - a wheel? Could Venus have been expelled from Jupiter? The apparent birth of Venus might be better accounted for ...
178. Cosmic Catastrophes and the Ballgame of the Sky Gods in Mesoamerican Mythology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... question arises as to whether these legendary twins might have been two astronomical fire balls' or a comet split into two fragments? Barbara Tedlock seems to suspect something in this direction when she underlines: ' [. .. ] it may well be that the cigars smoked by the hero twins of the Popol Vuh are to be understood as meteors' . Both the cosmic torch and as the heavenly cigars naturally burn away during the night. By consequence, the underworld gods announce the death of the hero twins and both are subsequently sacrificed'. And then they were sacrificed and buried. They were buried at the Place of Ball Game Sacrifice, as it is ...

... , could not have caused the massive volcanism, which must have started earlier. It all depends upon time scale, however. If the lava flows occurred over a matter of weeks and not millions of years, then they would have caught the iridium fall out from the atmosphere after they had started. Meanwhile geologists have found a pebble of meteoric composition in the Pacific Ocean and two tiny pieces of nearly pure iridium from the Yucatan crater, all of which they think came from the meteorite which caused the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinctions.

... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:1 (June 1998) Home | Issue Contents Fake Martian Meteorites & Nasa Martian Programs http://houstonspacesociety.org/meteor/Lets try to use common sense approach and check main cornerstones of the theory of SNC's Martian origin for factual and logical inconsistencies. Jury members does not need to be a genetic experts to understand the difference in matching of the blood type and DNA matching. Contrary to what many "SNC Martian origin" scientists wish to think most of their theories, analyses and conclusions (in this particular case of course) are pretty easy to understand by any college graduate after some additional basic learning. Majority of ...
