The Dart Mission and Deflecting Asteroids

The recent Dart mission to send a craft to impact the Didymus B asteroid to deflect it seems to be a success, but the true results before the effects of doing this are known. Before the congratulations and hailing the success of the mission guaranteeing the people of earth a safe passage, we may need […]

Donations for Runnings Sites

I am at the moment trying to recoup the costs of running my two sites: gpig.net, Jeff’s Science and Web Site and doomwatch.org, my environmental and world risk website The cost of running these, apart from time, is around £500 a year that I have funded from my own finances, but if you find the […]

Nine Gods of the Mayans

The end of the Mayan long count calendar is an event that was supposed to have happened in December 2012, which is a period which is supposed to be the end of a long count cycle, the last age starting in 3114BC and having 13 cycles or bak’tun. So the age difference is about 5125 […]

New Possible Threats

27/09/2022 – 19:50 High Proton emissions from sun. Next risk point possibly 11/12/2022. Rough estimation of cycles, 75-80 days, 9-13 years, 160-170 years and 450-550 years, periods 50X, 15X and 3X. 27/09/2022 – Hurricane Ian seems to becoming more of a threat to the coast of Florida than expected and may possibly give storm surges […]

Human Continuity and Persistence

I run a website called www.doomwatch.org that I set up to identify risks to the human race and the creatures that exist on this planet. Many of them are remote possibilities, not likelihoods of occurrence, but some are definite and just dependent on the time we have.  When I first saw the Doomwatch series in […]

Survival from a Known or Unknown Risk

I tried for quite a while to come up with a title that encompassed my thoughts and ideas in a particular avenue of thinking about possibilities. This seems to broadly cover a lot of the areas, but isn’t exclusive to what my thought experiment consisted of. To start with we need to try to define […]

History Seems to be Missing

It’s interesting that asteroid 163348 (2002 NN4), which is between 150-300m in length, was discovered 18 years ago, arriving in an expected path. They aren’t particularly worrying. What is worrying is something like Oumuamua, which was between 100m and 1 kilometre long and had passed within earths orbit already, went within mercury’s orbit, and was […]

Disaster Scenarios

We have viruses, magnetic pole shift and solar flares as the key elements of problems currently being on the radar. Unless we are blindsided, then an asteroid is unlikely, and a super-volcano would be an outside chance at the moment, but both still present, but with low odds of happening in the next 100 years. […]

We Live on Fragile World

We live on a fragile world. It has many balances and checks that keep it in order, but there are many things on our planet and in our solar system and the universe that can disturb this balance. If you are of the opinion that ‘forewarned is forearmed,’ then read on. Some of the risks […]
