GROAN..... It continues... They see bacteria in *every dust
particle* in our solar system....

Please note that, in every major dust press anouncement made
this year, Hoyle and Wickramasinghe have followed it with a
"paper" of their own, claiming that the dust observation shows
evidence for bacteria.

BTW: The URL you pointed to: points to
these Panspermia authors, in other words:


A bacterial "fingerprint" in a Leonid meteor train

                   Chandra Wickramasinghe and Fred Hoyle

A recently observed broad 3.4 micron spectral "fingerprint" in a
persistent Leonid meteor train at a height of 83km is likely to be due
to emission of surrounding mesospheric bacteria heated by the passage
of an incandescent fireball.


I wonder what journal would review this ??

Mike, if you want some dust astro news to boggle your mind, reread
my extropians post of Tue, 21 Nov 2000 (*).

Well.. it boggles *my* mind, anyway, but maybe my mind is just
easily boggled.
