A large part of the fear that great
ion-lets have always lnsilred Is due to
an Instinctive dread of their tremendous
powers for evil. They look Ilk besoms of
dertructltn and those who know nothing
about astronomy accept them at their
apparent face value.
And, In truth. If they could come within
hitting distance of the earth they would
do an enormous amount of damage, and
eorre of them might be capaMe of putting
the earth temporarily out of commission
as an Inhabited globe.
The terror that was aroused In many
quarters by Halley'a comet. In 1910, has
been recalled by the appearance of sev
eral r.ew comets within a few months
past so that It la worth while to consider
what an evilly disposed comet could do
to the earth If It got a chance.
There are two ways In which a comet
Could cause damage to th earth first,
by running straight Into It with 16.000
times the velocity of an express train.
and, second, by Infecting th atmosphere
with the poisonous or stifling gases con
tained In Its tall.
Let us consider the first case of a comet
Two things have to be taken Into ac
count, vis: th velocity and the weight
of the colliding comet, considered as a
gigantic projectile, shot against th earth
as a target.
Comets ar very deceptive In regard to
weight or mass. They ar enormously
large, but relatively very light. Th
comet In the picture Is th monster that
appeared In 1W1, which first grased th
sun and then swept the earth with Its
tall. Tou perclev how Insignificant our
globe looks In It presence. But slse Is
not everything, for small as the earth is.
compared with that great comet. It out
weighed It millions of times.
Halley's comet also occupied vastly
more space than the earth, but a careful
estimate has shown that It probably did
not weigh more than 80,000,000 tons, which
Is much less than the weight of the ma
terial excavated to make th Panama
canal. . v
It might be thought then that th
earth Is In no more danger from such a
comet than a battleship Is from a boy's
beonshooter. But now the velocity begins
to com Into play. Th speed of a comet
at the earth's dlstano from th sun
would be about twenty-elx miles per sec
A mass of thirty million tons shooting
through space at a velocity of twenty
six miles per second would develop. In
round numbers, about twenty qulntlllkm
foot-pounds of energy, equivalent to th
development In on second of thirty-six
thousand million million horsepower.
Where th comet struck everything
rock, soli, vegetation would be melted,
vitrified, and ven vaporised. In an In
stant, for all this tremendous energy
would u turned Into heat, through th
sudden and complete arrest of th swift
motion of the comet. Th six hundred
qulntilllons of "absolut units of en
ergy" developed by th stopping of th
comet would furnish enough heat to
liquefy more than a million million
tons of solid Iron.
Th result would be a very big and a
very deep hoi In th earth. Thousands
of square miles would be mor or less
directly affected by the terrific Impact,
for the shock would be greater than that

We hav only a little apace left to con
sider the effects of a collision between
the earth and the tall of a comet. This
Is something that has actually ocourred
two or three times within a century. As
already said, th comet of 1861. shown In
the picture, enveloped the earth with the
spreading end of Its tall for a few hours,
and In 1910 Halley's comet brushed Its
tall over th earth, but apparently tho
electric repulsion developed prevented the
gases of th tall from entering th at

cas this would occur, so that cloctriclty
