This resource, which began in 1994, is offered as a public service. Though other themes are touched upon, the site is primarily focused on understanding the social and physical influence of a once highly-visible large-comet, in a short-period Earth-threatening orbit. This object, according to astronomical evidence, has been progressively breaking up since the Holocene time period began. The result of such debris scattering was to increase the likelihood of Earth's climate being affected by periodic interaction with extraterrestrial material during this most recent time period.
The subject is fascinating and demonstrably essential to an accurate understanding of our species' behavior over the past 12,000 or so years. Some familiarity with this topic will be seen as necessary by students of anthropology, archeology, classics, and religion who peruse this material objectively. The topic also has philosophic and social policy aspects that need to be explored. As the first species on Earth with the capacity to prevent impact events that would otherwise affect biological evolution--What is our responsibility and what is a prudent course of action?
Hopefully this location will also serve as a forum for this new area of inquiry. Though I began investigating this subject over three decades ago, I certainly do not view my own research as definitive and so welcome constructive criticism.
