Russian Meteor

Postby Phillip » Sat 09 Mar 2013 3:49 pm

The Russian meteor of February 15th has tickled the fancy of the media and yet these things have probably been a common occurrence throughout human history. Why have the last few generations of westerners become distanced from this reality?
Claude Schaeffer proposed his theory of earthquake storms causing mass destruction of settlements sites across the Aegean and western Asia as long ago as 1948. At that time it was considered absurd, catastrophic nonsense, and somewhat pseudo-scientific. However, the Agean and Anatolia is at a major plate boundary and earthquake zone. Earthquakes take place all the time across this region, What other archaeologists disliked was the intrusion of a different discipline into theirs, that of seismology, but also they were assured by geologists such a things as earthquake storms was far fetched and could not possibly have happened - even though the evidence was there on the ground.
This is where the Russian meteor comes in. It sent out a pressure wave that expanded radially through the atmosphere. At the same time it sent out a seismic wave 'within' the ground that was picked up by seismographic stations all around the world. Can a bolide, exploding nearer to the ground than the Russian meteor, have generated a seismic wave powerful enough to cause an earthquake storm as described by Schaeffer?

I am more interested in Asteroid 2012DA14 than in the Russian meteor. This asteroid's track was closely monitored prior to its fly-by that was supposed to have been 17,200 miles above the Earth's surface. I have looked for reports about exactly how close to the Earth the asteroid actually came, but have not found any; all reports I have read about the asteroid mention its anticipated distance from the Earth not its actual distance. It seems to me that with this fly-by we may have a test for Wal Thornhill's electric universe theory. An asteroid carrying a charge should have experienced some electromagnetic force of repulsion when it entered the Earth's magnetic field. If the asteroid was in fact diverted from its plotted track some force must have been involved.

On the Eric Aitchison email thread one of the members asked Tom Findlay of EU fame about the Russian Meteor and he came up with an explanation that might interest you Peter. See In the News where there is a succession of posts with links on the subject. See also a link that claimed the Russian Meteor was in orbital resonance with the bigger object and they were one of a pair, in spite of what NASA claimed. Some interesting stuff on this at the Cosmic Tusk web site. Not necessarily true but it has all gone quiet for some reason - no follow up of any kind. There were also two further objects that passed by Earth a few days after the Russian Meteor, one at 220,000 miles away and another at somewhat less than that, but not any threat as such.
