Why is it so hard for you guys to just admit it! Its like
- Hale-Bopp IS THE ONLY known case where a supposed comet
outgassed at that distance prior to perihelion, and it
was visible from Earth. This is just one fact laid up
alongside the others showing that something is terribly
- What caused the outgassing, and where the heck did it GO!
- Why could the ESO find NO comet emissions during their
- Why were the Hubble pictures of this suspect hidden when
it was supposed to be the comet of the millennium?
- Why did Brian Marsden try so damn hard to fit the 1993
McNaught image that he had to throw out 90% of the data
the public gave him in order to make it fit!
- How could a comet perturb AWAY from Jupiter?
- If a .0001% change in the eccentricity affects the orbit
periodicy, per Tholen, then how could a .0003% change in
the published Hale-Bopp orbit not affect the 4,000 year
orbit that was so brazenly announced?
- What was the observed change that supposedly required JPL
to tighten the eccentricity in the Hale-Bopp orbit, so it
could move toward an occultation with Gamma Andormedae,
