Cosmic Showers

The Persesids are particles released from comet 109P/Swift–Tuttle during its numerous returns to the inner solar system. They are called Perseids since the radiant (the area of the sky where the meteors seem to originate) is located near the prominent constellation of Perseus the hero when at maximum activity. A great majority of these particles are tiny bits of rock and ice with the consistency of ash. They are only visible because of the tremendous velocity (38 miles/sec) as they strike the upper atmosphere. No Perseid meteor is known to have survived intact to the surface of the Earth as they are too fragile to survive their plunge through the atmosphere.

Now of course I think everything is a brane these days with an energetic dark matter core.  My image of a comet is that it can contain multiple branes(nuclei) and can actually collide, collapse and expell lower mass branes from the firewall/surface of its dark matter core.  If they are branes, the only way they can react gravitationally is to become energetic and expel massive but tiny quantum particles, just like the Sun.  I believe these are what we many times perceive as meteorites and are also known as “plasmoids”, which are known to exist in comet tails. The crust of the comet is just transmuted material from low energy nuclear reactions and beta decay near the surface of the core outside the “firewall” and it has a gas coma of hydrogen and such around that. As I look at that beautiful video, those “particles” just seem way to energetic for me, almost as if they are accelerating.  In my model, once they burn off any beta decay crust built up on their surface in space they accelerate into and through the earth and just become an energetic member of our quantum field until they eventually decay and coalesce.  That may or may not be the correct interpretation but it is the same reason I am concerned about possibly passing through ISON’s tail in January 2014 if it makes it around the Sun. A large concentration of vacuum energy on Earth is bad for biology as I believe it is the source of uncertainty in our jet streams I have been showing you.

That is a beautiful video though.
