Interstellar comets visit our solar system more frequently than thought


"Science begets knowledge, opinion ignorance.
On the question of comets and disasters (only a connection), those who think comets foreshadow disaster might like to suggest Tambora (super eruption 1816) as a warning by Nature for the events of 1812-1816.

The connection? Maybe Nature is lining up these comets (knowing that we can detect them) by way of warning.

Be careful what you wish for (as in maltreating the Earth).

The report says, "We concluded that, in the outer reaches of the solar system, and even considering the large uncertainties associated with the abundance of Borisov-like objects, transitory interstellar comets should outnumber Oort Cloud objects (comets from our own solar system)," Siraj added."

Consider that a comet traveling 13 light years at 20 km/s, could take 195,000 years to travel that distance. We also have the statement, *transitory interstellar comets should outnumber Oort Cloud objects...*

There is also the calculated number of Oort Cloud comets said to exist today. Different reports measure the numbers in the range of trillions of comets.
