An old theory has re-appeared due to new evidence that it might actually exist. Years ago (and till today) some scientists have stated that regular mass extinctions are due to a far sun orbiting brown dwarf that regularly sends fast moving objects such as comets at Earth every 26 million years or so.
This object over the years has been called Niburu then Nemesis and now it’s being called Tyche.
It’s all the same theory that has circulated since the Babylonian’s named it Niburu. This object has been blamed for nearly all mass extinctions on earth that have been fairly regularly appeared every 26,000,000 years. Until now proof has either been non-existent or proven false. This might or might not be another case of it, but evidence is mounting on the side that states it does exist.
We have been told that NASA’s infrared space telescope WISE will confirm Tyche’s existence and location within two years.
A just published article on CNN is stating that mounting evidence is pointing to a brown dwarf roughly 4 times the size of Jupiter is in fact orbiting our sun at a distance of roughly 15,000 times further than Earth is from the sun or better understood as about a quarter light year away (about 3 light months away).
This object would be much closer than any other star. The nearest currently known is the red dwarf Proxima Centauri about 4.2 light-years away.
(image in this article is of Proxima Centauri, the best “near by” example of what it would be like, though Brown Dwarfs are much dimmer than red dwarfs).
For ease of understanding, picture a brown dwarf as a very large planet. It’s not massive enough to be considered a star but IS massive enough to start generating it’s own heat.
If discovered, it’s even questionable if the brown dwarf would be considered as part of the solar system though it would be unquestionable that it would affect our solar system.
Enjoy the new reality.
