81. Science Frontiers Digest of Scientific Anomalies [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers The Unusual& Unexplained Strange Science* Bizarre Biophysics* Anomalous astronomy From the pages of the World's Scientific Journals Archaeology Astronomy Biology Geology Geophysics Mathematics Psychology Physics About Science Frontiers Science Frontiers is the bimonthly newsletter providing digests of reports that describe scientific anomalies; that is, those observations and facts that challenge prevailing scientific paradigms. Over 2000 Science Frontiers digests have been published since 1976. These 2,000+ digests represent only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The Sourcebook Project, which publishes Science Frontiers, also publishes the Catalog of Anomalies, which delves far more deeply into anomalistics and now extends to sixteen volumes, and covers dozens of disciplines. Over 14,000 volumes of science journals, including all issues of Nature and Science have been examined for reports on anomalies. In this context, the newsletter Science Frontiers is the appetizer and the Catalog of Anomalies is the main course. Subscriptions Subscriptions to the newsletter Science Frontiers cost US$7.00 for six issues or the equivalent in UK or Canadian funds. Checks should be made payable to William Corliss ...

85. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... published, apparently under pretext of a suspicion of ? contamination ? by carbon of other epochs. It [would be a great service to science if all these ? contaminated ? cases were made public and thus subjected to scrutiny: Is not a single pattern in the age-displacement? As long ago as 1950 the Metropolitan Museum of Art sent to Dr. Libby specimens of the New Kingdom; but in eleven years a period of 1350 years in conventional history (-1680 to -330) remained excluded from published results of radiocarbon. Lately, one strange case with a cartouche of Seti I was made known. Here is a case for you to go to the roots of the issue. Then also you may know whether Velikovsky was right or wrong in a problem that cannot be foreign to you... One of the most amazing spectacles that I have observed is this: Those very men who observed and described the great catastrophes fall back and defend the theory of uniformity with even greater jealousy than their colleagues who never wavered and never were even tempted to question the ever ...
86. Queen Tworse [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... have been rather unique. In Egypt, traditionally, the throne was inherited through a royal princess and marriage of a royal son to such an heiress legalized the succession. Her consort, whoever he was, would be elevated to kingship. The evidence from the tomb of Twosre and from the other scattered archaeological finds, instead of offering a clear answer, presents a confused and much debated state of affairs. What follows is an attempt at a reconstruction of the sequence of events. As we see it, a clue to the strange facts of Twosre having a tomb separate from that of her husband, and of her being pictured there with another king whose name was subsequently replaced with that of her husband Sethos, can be sought in the legend about the three brothers. Ramses Siptah appears to correspond to Ramses of the legend, and to have died at the hands of Sethos. When Sethos killed his brother Ramses Siptah, he did not replace him yet on the throne of Egypt; his action was in the nature of a guerrilla assassination, he being ...

Unlike all other large moons, it has an atmosphere. And that atmosphere is the densest of any terrestrial planet after Venus. It's also far more extensive than Venus's, stretching out to about 880 km. The haze layers seen in the image above reach a height of 400 km above Titan. The plethora of puzzles evokes contrary guesses at answers from scientists. Toby Owens, principal scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, surmised: "What we've got is a very primitive atmosphere that has been preserved for 4.6 billion years. Titan gives us the chance for cosmic time travel... going back to the very earliest days of Earth when it had a similar atmosphere." The New Scientist, in its November 6, 2004 issue, supposed: “Titan appears to have ...
88. Saturn in Ancient Times [Thunderbolts Website]
... , identify the great "sun" gods with the motionless center of heaven, the celestial pole. They speak of a primeval sun, an exemplary or "best" sun, ruling before the present sun. The god's station was the summit of the world axis, from which he ultimately fell in a heaven-altering catastrophe. Perhaps the best known story is the Greek account of Kronos, founder of the Golden Age, eventually driven from his seat at the top of the world by his son Zeus. To what body did these strange traditions refer? Today we take for granted that the ancient words we translate as "helios" and "sol" originated as references to the Sun that illuminates our every day. In many languages the words for this axial figure did indeed become the words for the Sun. But the later identity could not obscure the more archaic idea --of a former, stationary light at the pole, whose every feature defies any identification with the Sun in our sky today. As strange as it may seem, early astronomical traditions identify the ...

90. The Explosive Demise of Comet Linear [Thunderbolts Website]
... actual attributes and behavior of comets. Linear was not the “dirty snowball” of modern comet lore. In September 1999, the LINEAR telescope in New Mexico detected a comet out beyond the orbit of Jupiter, speeding toward the Sun. Because it was the first instrument to see it, the comet received its name from the telescope. Linear was estimated to be about a mile wide. As it approached its perihelion in July 2000, many telescopes — including the Hubble Space Telescope — had the comet in clear view. Then strange things began to happen. On July 5, Linear brightened by more than 50 percent in just four hours. It was throwing off large quantities of dust — much more dust than the expected water or other volatiles. Next, a chunk of the nucleus tore away and “blew” back into the tail where it continued to disintegrate, as can be seen in the Hubble Space Telescope images here. Then, on July 14, the orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory discovered that the “dirty snowball” was generating X-rays! ( ...
