Biography:

Daniel Durda is a planetary scientist with the Southwest Research Institute. He has authored 68 scientific publications on the subject of the collisional and dynamical evolution of main-belt and near-Earth asteroids, Kuiper belt comets, and interplanetary dust; airborne observations of planetary occultations; the formation and observational detection of asteroidal satellites; the size distribution of dust from the catastrophic disruption of meteoritic samples; and the global distribution of ejecta from the Chicxulub impact crater.

Past Shows:

Asteroids/ Parapsychology

In the first half of the program, planetary scientist Daniel Durda discussed how asteroids could benefit the human race by providing minerals via deep space mining as well as the various scenarios which could play out if an asteroid impacted the Earth. In the latter half, parapsychologist Jeffrey Mishlove talked about free will, ESP, and his extensive research into the "PK Man," Ted Owens, who allegedly possessed psychokinetic powers as a result of a contact with ETs. ...

Asteroids/ Paranormal Tales

In the first half, planetary scientist Daniel Durda talked about Near Earth asteroids, and the possibility of a mid-sized one, 2012 DA14, hitting us in 2013. The 150 ft. wide object (much smaller than Apophis) won't collide with Earth when it makes a close approach on Feb. 15th, 2013. In the latter half, author and Anglican priest Lionel Fanthorpe shared tales and theories of the paranormal and the esoteric. Electromagnetic or radiation influence may affect the ability to see and hear psychic phenomena. Additionally, there could be a thin interface between our realm and a parallel universe, something so close, that we can actually catch glimpses of what is going on there, and vice versa, he said. ...

2008 & Compatible Numbers

Numerologist Glynis McCants offered a forecast of what's in store for 2008, reviewed her past comments about 2007, and spoke about number compatibilities. We are entering a "1" year (2 + 0 + 0 + 8 = 10 = 1). "I'm excited about this year," she said, noting it's a year of change, with revelations of what people are doing. In a "1" year, you are encouraged to step up, and motivated or ambitious people can do quite well, she said. However, the Earth's climate will become even more out of whack this year, she added.McCants on Election '08: As far as the political candidates go, Hillary Clinton is in a "personal year" of "1" and looks to be the strongest Democratic candidate, though Obama, a "2" lifepath, will be able to wow audiences. On the Republican side, McCain and Giuliani look the strongest, though Ron Paul might decide to run as an Independent. There are natural combinations of lifepath numbers that go together, she detailed: 1-5-7, 2-4-8, and 3-6-9. Some combinations can ... More »

Asteroids' Impact

"There are at least 300,000 near-earth objects," that could potentially hit our planet said Daniel Durda, an asteroid expert from the Southwest Research Institute. Durda, who was George Noory's guest the very first time he hosted Coast in April of 2001, returned to the show this Tuesday night. "I'm on the side that we should keep this out in the open," Durda weighed in on the recent controversy over whether a government should warn its populace of an imminent asteroid hit. Besides "it's pretty much impossible to hide the evidence of an impending impact," he said. If one of the smaller near-earth objects were to hit our planet, say the size of a football field, the ensuing airburst would be similar to the Hiroshima blast Durda speculated. The object would likely explode while still in the air from the intense aerodynamic pressure, he added. Durda characterized the planet Jupiter as a kind of protector of the solar system in that the large body draws in a lot of comets and aste ... More »
