We've all seen or followed the existence of this man, and the numerous posts about Elenin and Nibiru etc.
Well I thought I'd email him on his email address firstname.lastname@example.org - I asked about the existence of Elenin, and what he knew about Nibiru and YU55.
To my surprise I got the following response;
Yes, I'm discoverer of C/2010 X1.
You can find all real information about this, already disintegrated comet, on my blog spaceobs.org...
About 2005 YU55 and comet Elenin
Was it really him though, as I find it hard to believe he exists.
I have recently watched a youtube video - www.youtube.com...
which 'decodes' the name - Leonid refers to a shower of meteors from the Leo constellation, and ELE via wikipedia says it possibly refers to an
Extinction Level Event, and that NIN refers to a Sumarian Goddess, in Akkadian cuniform.
Bloody funny don't you think, that there's this guy who is said to have discovered Comet C2010 X1, and it just so happens that his name breaks down
into all things linked to the subject? If he were called Vladimir Vostok, that might make it a bit hard to link it all in to any comet!
I looked him up on Wikipedia and it says he works for the Keldysh Inst of Applied Mathematics, and lives in Lyubertsy. So I checked the institute...
He's not mentioned there, despite his fame? So I checked his home town and saw they list notable people who come from there. See this link;
Seems a youth politician, a football player and a lead singer of a rock group are all notable.... but funnily enough there's no mention of our friend
Mr Elenin - Rather odd, given his amazing discovery, don't you think?
(Note this website was updated 28th August 2011).
You may also note a certain Mr Gagarin comes from there... Is that why it was chosen?
I don't know what else has been posted or what anyone else thinks or knows, so I throw it out there.....
