41. F. X. Kugler -- Almost a Catastrophist [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of rising and setting and the reciprocal relationships between the sun and the fixed stars, in a period two thousand years into the past. All this, however, is necessary in order to establish the true significance of the particular passages." Kugler recognises in lines 512, 513 and 515 a description of the arrival of "two enormous meteors of the apparent size and form of the sun and moon... with their characteristic accompanying features", but is happy to leave them out of the further action, accepting them, presumably, as no more than the excuse the ancients needed to write a poem about the events following (8 ). The parallel passage which ...

44. The Floor Of The Seas. Ch.7 Deserts And Oceans (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... places the bottom consists of red clay. Samples of the red clay from the central Pacific showed a "surprisingly high content of nickel," and also a high content of radium, though the water of the ocean is almost completely free of these elements.2 The red clay is red because it contains ferruginous (iron) compounds. Meteoric iron differs from iron of terrestrial origin in its admixture of nickel, and it is this characteristic that makes it possible to differentiate iron tools of early ages, for instance of the pyramid age in Egypt, and to decide whether iron pieces were smelted from ore or were worked meteorites. "Nickel is a very rare element in most ...
45. On "The Year -687": A Postscript (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... unsupported speculation in any case. - LER] To the Editor of KRONOS: The following are a few comments on Sean Mewhinney's article "On The Year -687' ". Since mention was made of de Mailla's Sung Dynasty compilation of Chinese history, the Tong-Kien-Kang-Mou (KRONOS VI:4 , p. 21), its description of the meteor fall of the year 687 B.C . could have been referred to. The possibility that sources considerably later than Confucius had access to authentic information cannot be discounted, especially in a society like the Chinese where cultural traditions were continuous. The extraordinary prominence accorded to the event in the Tong-Kien-Kang-Mou indicates that something more than a meteor shower ...
46. Martian Meteorites in Ancient Myth and Modern Science [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon IV:2 (Aug 1995) Home | Issue Contents Martian Meteorites in Ancient Myth and Modern Science Ev Cochrane On June 28th, 1911, the inhabitants of Nakhla, Egypt, were treated to a spectacular meteor shower. As it turns out, one of these meteors almost certainly came from the planet Mars, nearly 50 million miles away. The difficulty in dislodging a rock from the red planet, much less transporting it to Earth, has prompted several noted authorities to doubt its Martian origin. The meteorite's chemical imprint, however, not unlike the DNA-evidence in a murder trial, leaves little doubt about its place of origin. Nor was this the only ...
47. The Moon In Upheaval [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Early theories said that they [mascons] represented metallic asteroid-sized bodies lying under the maria. However, such bodies would have had to be traveling unreasonably slowly when they implanted themselves in order to remain intact." (12) Another theory explaining the mascons was presented by R. P. Baldwin. (13) Instead of turning to meteoric impacts, he suggested mascons were created by different lava densities and thicknesses forming below the maria. The problem is, Why would denser lavas survive above less dense masses? Hot dense lavas would tend to sink by changing the surrounding mass to magma. Why would dense magmas only rise on one side of the Moon along a great circle ...
... is greater when there are many spots than when there are few. It implies that the sun's activity has been replenished by the means which caused the spots. Sunspots are believed to be connected with magnetic storms, such as those in September 1903, which cut out cable communication with America, though the reason was probably due to a passing meteor and had little or nothing to do with sunspots. Messrs. Carrington and Hodgson, in 1859, witnessed a sudden tremendous outburst on the sun, and this was accompanied almost instantly by a magnetic storm on earth. It may have been a coincidence, for even though magnetic waves might be seen in the sun at a given moment ...

50. Cosmic Winter [Articles]
... for the things that I'm talking about. I actually take a little time to gravitate in the community that I'm not familiar with, and I do realize that the need to talk of catastrophism in terms of planets kind of takes you away from the starting point which I perceive to be more important; namely, the smaller bodies, the meteors, the meteoroids, which I talk about. And I thought, perhaps, therefore, a few illustrations might just put you in a slightly better frame of mind for receiving what I'm talking about. So if I may have the slides, please. Indeed, I can't really claim much for any of these pictures, but this ...
