BEST QUOTES OF THE SHOW
Of the short period comets which are 205 out of the 1000 known comets...within 10,000 years they will all be gone because Jupiter will sweep them all up. This is a huge problem for astronomers [who believe the universe is billions of years old]. And there has never been a new comet observed to form. All the comets we see are within the solar system's sphere of influence and we have never seen a new one built
The reason why Dr. Brownlee at the University of Washington convinced NASA to spend 200 million dollars to send the Stardust space probe up to the Wild 2 comet is because the Wild 2 comet was coming in for the first time and they thought it would be pristine and it would bring back all this - the beginning of the universe, big bang stuff that would be formed in the outer reaches near absolute zero cold space. Well, what it ended up bringing back are minerals that can only form in liquid water such as limestone. How can limestone be in liquid water that was supposedly out in the outer reaches of space its entire life where it's where it's minus 400 degrees or so farenheight?
