Podcast Episode 122: Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and Rosetta Conspiracies


Conspiracies of
Comet 67P …
Few, but they are weird.

A timely and listener-requested episode! What’s not to love!? In the episode I talk about several of the conspiracies I’ve seen surrounding the Rosetta mission and Comet 67P. From artificiality (Hoagland makes a guest appearance) to singing so as to raise our consciousness to angelic levels when 2012 failed, I spend nearly a half hour going through 2 to 4 claims (depending on how you count them) that have been making the rounds. I also get to touch on image analysis.

There is also one New News segment this episode, and it refers to the death of the Venus Express mission around (oddly enough) Venus. The news relates to the episodes on uncertainty. Not sure what the connection is? Listen to the episode! The episode also comes in at just over 30 minutes, my target length.

  1. I think you overdid it a bit with the ‘alleged’ & ‘allegedly'(s) but otherwise a good episode.

  3. Hoagland trotted out his “67P is an abandoned space station” theory at length last night, to general laughter. Here’s my review: http://dorkmission.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-wisdom-of-facebook-commenters.html

    • I had opened the link, but I hadn’t read your post yet. As I said during the episode, I was sure you’d correct me if Hoagland had made the skyscraper claims after orbit.
