They’re still talking about the Russian meteor

31 July 2013

Mainstream media and NASA have gone quiet but over at http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2013/03/05/andrew-cooper-were-the-recent-… … comments are still coming in 5 months after the posting was uploaded and it concerns the possibility a near earth flyby of an asteroid or dark comet may have had a number of smaller companions, one of these being the Russian meteor that exploded above Chelyabinsk. The post is now 49 pages long with over 600 comments – some of them quite lengthy and full of calculations that try to determine the various trajectories and orbits.

At http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2013/07/30/poppenhaeger-hd-189733a-has-be… which is a post by the same person, calling himself Scute. It concerns a paper available to read at http://arxiv.org/pdf/1306.2311v1.pdf by Poppenhaeger et al on solar planetary theory. The idea is that solar variation is coincident with changes in the disposition of masses in the solar system – the movement around the Sun by the planets. In short, the level of solar activity affects the planets, on the one hand, and in turn the positions of the planets affect the level of solar activity. This is denied by mainstream. It has also been dubbed astrology.
