A big thanks to Stuart Robbins for recording a special episode of his Exposing PseudoAstronomy podcast on the Comet Elenin scaremongering. Somebody needed to do it. Stuart explains Elenin, the crazy conspiracy theories about it, and the rational, science-based reality – it’s just a regular comet, that won’t get any closer to Earth than Venus, and might very well be breaking up. Not very scary.
Thanks to @2012hoax for the link.
