... Physics Today for Sept. 1980, pp. 97-98, has correctly informed us that the model Sagan employs is "only a good approximation when short time periods or small distances are considered." Robert Bass has also informed us of the same when he wrote Sagan's model was derived from Opik and Urey "to obtain apparently reasonable statistics about meteoric collision with the Moon, Mars and Venus; but in such calculations, it is assumed (as an approximation)..."3 The model employed by Sagan was never meant to be applied in the way he used it. Therefore, it can give 10 collisions for one near approach. In simple terms, Sagan's model ...

... is still hot and active. There has even been a double-take on how the iron oxide, which colours the surface red, got there; it used to be thought that it was the result of chemical reactions in warm pools of water in the planet's youth, but it now appears the minerals are more likely to have arrived with small meteors and dust particles. We look forward to more Martian mysteries.

... centre. Eddington, who is responsible for the standard model, wrote: "In seeking a source of energy other than [gravitational] contraction the first question is whether the energy to be radiated in future is now hidden in the star or whether it is being picked up continuously from outside. Suggestions have been made that the impact of meteoric matter provides the heat, or that there is some subtle radiation traversing space that the star picks up. Strong objections may be urged against these hypotheses individually; but it is unnecessary to consider them in detail because they have arisen through a misunderstanding of the nature of the problem. No source of energy is of any avail unless it ...

... away, around the Mediterranean and appears to have occurred as the eighth of eleven quakes occurring over a period of twelve years. Member Peter Fairlie-Clarke notes that Gibbon, in The Decline and Fall of The Roman Empire (Vol. I, Chapter X) , wrote of the 260's AD as a period which suffered inundations, earthquakes, uncommon meteors, preternatural darkness and a crowd of prodigies', with plague and famine raging in every Roman province. Of the 365 AD quake, Gibbon wrote (Chapter XXVI) that the whole of the Roman Empire was shaken by it and that, after it, people were prosecuted for being able to control the eternal order of the planets ...

... emerging portrait of Venus as a volcanic cauldron. Remarkable computer enhanced data from radio telescopes at Arecibo, Puerto Rico, and Goldstone, California began revealing features with shapes suspiciously like lava flows across the planet. "Stunning images from the Soviet Union's Venera 15 and 16 orbiters revealed not only abundant evidence of volcanism, but also far fewer ancient meteoric impact craters than on the Moon or Mars. "7 If Sagan is still unconvinced of the fact that Venus is not cratered just like the Moon, I refer him to that well-known astronomer, Carl Sagan, who wrote in his book Comet the following:'...a radar image of the surface of Venus obtained with ...

... social indications that we are dealing with human beings behaving in the aftermath of catastrophe. The Homeric Greeks developed a pantheon of skygods and assumed that these gods would continuously manifest themselves by thunderbolts, showers of arrows, tidal waves, earthquakes, meteorites, and so on. They venerated all sky signs and objects from the sky, such as meteoric iron and stones. The earth itself was a living animal and thoroughly animated in its parts [17]. A number of gods and demi-gods contributed to a continual geological and ecological restlessness. Animals, plants, and rocks changed readily into humanoid forms and vice versa. Ovid's Metamorphoses elaborates this theme interminably. By the time of Thucydides ...

... out of them rose the Earth. ' A passage in the Slavonic Book of Enoch is quite parallel: Out of a lump of snow from the foot of the throne of glory the Earth was formed and the foundation stone of the world was laid upon the waters. ' Metallo-mineral material now came down from the dying satellite, in blazing meteor swarms: Burning coals went forth at his feet, ' says Habakkuk iii. 5, and a Jewish myth tells us: He took snow and fire and rubbed them together, and thus created the world. ' And in another myth we read: The building [the newly formed Earth] was still quite wet, but fire ...

... be a set of extinct volcanos, according to an early French geologist. Since few scientists believe in cosmic thunderbolts, this report of Lake Bolsena has never been thoroughly investigated. The Italian anthropologist-geologist Leonardi assured me that the lake basin is a typical extinct volcano. Velikovsky accepted the lightning thesis [9 ]. Geographer Donald Patten calls it a meteoric crater-lake because it lacks a volcano talus, is oval shaped, 7x9 miles, and is bottomed by lava and ash [10]. Until an intensive investigation is made, Leonardi's expertness must weigh heavily in our judgement. J.E . Strickling has guided the author to a passage in Ginzberg's Legends of the Jews(I , ...

... as a carbonado. Their source and formation of these has long been a puzzle although it seems agreed that they are very old. It has now been suggested that they result from fiery impacts, but one geologist has gone one better and suggested they come from space, forming in the shock waves of exploding stars and falling to Earth as meteors in Precambrian times before there was sufficient oxygen to burn them up. Even ordinary diamonds are still a puzzle, some containing minute tubules associated with radiohalos, which can only have come from included specks of radioactive material. Unfortunately these have a lower melting point than their diamond surroundings and some halos arise from material with a half-life of only ...

... dew point (which would be considerable below the boiling point) and cool rain would have fallen. Kenneth Hsu in his book, The Great Dying, 2 discusses what would happen if, the amount of water vapor thrown into the air would supersaturate the stratosphere... The approach of the large comet postulated by Velikovsky also brought innumerable meteors along with it. Many of these would have fallen into the oceans and thrown enormous amounts of water vapor into the atmosphere. The water vapor would rapidly recondense rain and snow out of the atmosphere. "Croft estimated that most of the vapor would return to the Earth's surface in a few months. Total precipitation would amount to a ...
