New evidence has come out that definitively supports the solar theory of the Pleistocene megafaunal extinction and puts to rest the idea of a comet impact. Before addressing that, let’s review the various extraterrestrial cause theories that are out there that attempt to explain this. One theory, first proposed by myself in 1983 (PhD dissertation) suggests that the Sun as the cause, where the solar activity was aggravated by the incursion into the solar system of cosmic dust.

The Indiegogo crowd funding campaign for the Nassikas II levitation thruster ended on June 2nd (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/superconducting-levitation-thruster/x/13625374#/). At that point a total of 285 backers had provided 60% of the needed $32,000 goal amount. More →
Paper finally published after 30+ year journal battle ordeal. Samples retrieved from the ice age portion of the Camp Century, Greenland ice core show evidence that a major cosmic dust incursion episode occurred 49,000 years ago, the largest to occur in the past several hundred thousand years. Dr. Paul LaViolette, director of the Starburst Foundation, a New York based research institute, has found that over a period of at least 6 years, interstellar dust was entering the Earth’s atmosphere at up to 100,000 times that of the current cosmic dust influx rate. He presents this discovery in a paper that that is appearing in the December 1st issue of Advances in Space Research. More →

The hypothesis is presented that an abrupt rise in atmospheric radiocarbon concentration evident in the Cariaco Basin varve record at 12,837±10 cal yrs BP contemporaneous with the Rancholabrean termination, may have been produced by a super-sized solar proton. More →
The following is a terrestrial chronology charting the arrival of Galactic superwaves, cosmic dust incursions, extreme solar events, and glacier wave flood events during the past 67,000 years. It is divided in two parts, 67 kyrs BP to 19 kyrs BP and 19 kyrs BP to the present. All dates have been converted to the Cariaco Basin radiocarbon dated varve chronology published by Hughen (2006). References given in column 3 of the tables are given below.
When the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration said they would release their first image of Sgr A* on April 15th, instead, close to this date, they announced an image of M87 that was a rework of an image published two years earlier. Still to this date, they have not released an image of Sgr A*. The core of M87 is 1550 times more massive than the core of our galaxy, hence would be 1550 times more distorted due to gravitational warping.
