On Wednesday October 12 around 8:30am, I started my day as most days in my office checking the recent post section here on ATS. One post caught my
eye concerning a meteorite.
It was a thread just posted by a new member in the introduction forum.
The new member (unfortunately I can not remember his username) gave a brief introduction of himself which included two links which he stated in his
post would provide bio information about him.
One of the links was a university link ending in edu.
In his post he stated that he was tracking a meteorite that could potentially have extinction level consequences. He stated it was the size of a
He stated that this meteorite will hit next week, (I do not recall a specific date given)…….
He also stated that he wanted to get this warning out and gave his email address which also ended in .edu.
The post ended with his full name…..John (something)
Unfortunately when I read new threads that catch my eye I often just skim over the post the first time as I did with his………..Once I skimmed over
his thread I immediately clicked on his avatar to get further information on the member.
After realizing he was a new member I clicked on his thread link and attempted to go back to the thread………..
At this point the ATS Staff had other intentions on whom if anyone would ever view this thread……
It was deleted ….404
I went searching for his username in the members section but could not find a match.
Since I search new topics and new post from the “recent post” section as they are posted……..I can say that this is the second thread I have
seen deleted this week by the staff here.
As far as the T&C over ATS……I did not see anything that violated the terms in his post. Not sure about the email address……….
Maybe it was the links he provided………
His thread did not come across as “fear mongering”………It provided a brief synopses of the potential event with links to back up his
observations and credentials.
The Space Exploration forum is not my expertise. I wanted to share what little information I read from this deleted thread for those who may have
The primary reason I posted this information is due to this thread……..Kepler brown
dwarf/gas giant hurles comets/meteors oct 17 & 28 YU55 + Ele debris tail expected nov 8
If anything factual to his thread, maybe someone here will bring some light to it.........
