Solar System ‘Nemesis’: Nearby Stars Could Pose Threat

by Mike Wall, SPACE.com Senior Writer Date: 17 February 2011 Time: 07:00 AM ET

Artist’s concept of a red dwarf star named SO25300.5+165258. Though only 7.8 light-years away, the star is so dim it went undetected until 2003. Red dwarfs are thought to be the most common type of star.

Astronomical detectives have assembled a stellar lineup, identifying a handful of nearby stars that may come close enough to disturb our solar system in the next billion years or so.

Researchers calculated the orbits of 40,000 low-mass M-dwarf stars and found 18 that may come dangerously close to our cosmic neighborhood in the next billion years. While the chances of this actually happening are probably slim, researchers said, the results could be dramatic.

"The probability of an M dwarf running into the sun is essentially zero," said study lead author John Bochanski of Pennsylvania State University, who presented the results in Seattle last month at the 217th meeting of the American Astronomical Society. "But if one just came close, it could still cause comet showers."

Tracking 40,000 stars

Bochanski and his colleagues mined a catalog of 40,000 M dwarf stars, which are a common type of red dwarf. More than 70 percent of all stars are M dwarfs, Bochanski said.

The catalogue provided radial velocities, distances and proper motions for these stars. The researchers took that information and used it to model the stars’ orbits over the next billion years. They initially did this as part of a separate study, which sought to use the stars as tracers of the Milky Way’s disk, Bochanski said.

But the team realized it wasn’t a far leap to see which of the 40,000 M dwarfs might come close enough to disrupt our celestial neighborhood — perhaps by flinging comets toward the inner solar system.

“We had all of these objects,” Bochanski told SPACE.com. “It’s like having a gun with 40,000 bullets in it. Let’s see if any of them hit.”

As it turned out, the team identified 18 stars with so-called “Nemesis orbits,” named after the hypothetical dwarf star that some scientists think may be circling the sun from far, far away. These 18 approach fairly close to the sun, retreat, then come back again over time.

Some scientists have invoked the putative distant companion “Nemesis” to explain a perceived periodicity in mass extinctions on Earth. Nemesis could be disturbing comets from the Oort cloud — a large swarm of space rocks surrounding the solar system — at regular intervals, the argument goes, resulting in big, destructive impact events on Earth.

No need to worry

Uncertainties in the team’s calculations are large, especially toward the later end of the billion-year time scale. But it appears that chances of an encounter between our sun and any of these 18 stars in the near future are slim.

There is evidence for only a handful of encounters in the nearly 5 billion-year history of the solar system, Bochanski said. He guesses that of the 18 suspect stars, perhaps one will come close enough to make its presence felt in the next billion years — and that estimate’s probably on the high end.

“It’s a very unlikely event,” Bochanski said. “But we have identified some of the best candidates for that encounter.”

The Biggest Danger for Earth – Hercolubus a.k.a Nibiru (Planet X) Inbound

By Luis Fredas

Insiders from NASA, DoD national military intelligence, SETI, and the CIA speculate 2/3 of the population of the planet could perish during the coming pole-shift caused by the passage of Hercolubus (Planet X). Another 2/3 of those that survive initially could pass away to starvation and exposure to the elements within 6 months.

Most every secretive government agency in the USA is fully aware of what is expected and are readying themselves. The Vatican is fully abreast of what is expected. The public is not being warned and given their chance to prepare.

The volume of leaks from insiders, observatories, and the Vatican is bursting the dam of this disclosure wide open. The most important story on earth in over 3000 years is fast breaking loose from being held back by the controllers of the financial markets and major media for fear of panic and financial collapse.

These controllers put money in higher regard than people. The public can be given a chance to prepare by being informed. Our planet could very well be about to go through massive regular earth changes once again as a result of the passage of Hercolubus through our immediate solar system.

Many areas are now getting a minor preview of these events now because of the plasmatic electromagnetic connection between the planets. They are experiencing unusual weather, storms, volcanism, and seismic activity.

Hercolubus orbits between our sun and its dark twin. A diagram from the 1987-1989 NEW ILLUSTRATED SCIENCE & INVENTION ENCYCLOPEDIA in volume 18 under Space Probes shows our dead twin sun & the 10th planet.

It shows one of the more amusing pieces of evidence for the existence of Hercolubus is a picture from the 1987 New Science and Invention Encyclopedia. In a section on space probes, the encyclopedia shows the paths of the 2 Pioneer probes and illustrates how the probes were used in the search for more planets. It shows the Earth, the Sun, a dead star (at 50 billion miles or 538 AU) and a tenth planet (Hercolubus) (at 4.7 billion miles or 50 AU).

Zecharia Sitchin, the world renowned scholar and archaeologist, does indicate on occasion his knowledge of the return of Nibiru “AT THIS TIME”! To be too public about it, would perhaps prove dangerous because of his weight in the scientific community.

Sitchin also states absolutely & openly: “When Planet X (Hercolubus) returns, it would remove 90% of currently unsatisfactory human beings from the planet!”

A group of scientists in Russia, held several meetings in the year 2000 to discuss the inbound planet, discovered from one of their largest observatories. A 66 year old professor and physicist let it be known that he attended this meeting. This led to the infamous “2003 Problem” from a Reuters news service wire on Sept.13th, 2000. Top Russian government officials called for a commission to study the problem which was said to expect to cause “a string of calamities and a massive population shrinkage.” They openly wondered whether Russia would still even exist as a country afterward.

Andrei Shukshin, said: “What we do know is that Hercolubus (Planet X) is inbound now. Because of the comets tail drag, this factor keeps varying the speed and thus the time of passage can’t be calculated accurately”.

A large observatory in St. Petersburg, Russia admit they have been watching Hercolubus (Planet X) for 3 years and are worried about the substantial damage it may cause to Earth during its passage. The name they gave for Hercolubus was “Raja Sun” or “Great Star”.

A local observatory on Victoria Island, Canada, admits that they have seen Hercolubus but they do not want to speak about the damage it could cause with its passage.

Insiders in NASA & the military privately confirm that many of them are quietly contracting out the building of dome-homes (strongest structure known to man) in the upper USA (one of the said safest areas). These domes can withstand hurricane force winds and earthquakes. If these domes are built in the rolling hills or foothills, well away from the shorelines, major population centers, and flat plains (that are expected to flood with the constant rain and melting poles), they think the chances of survival are good.

But really that is not a safe shelter; the only possibility to survive to the arrival of Hercolubus (Planet X) is to have a minimum conscience level that allows you to pass to the next mankind without contaminate them.

Trusting the pentagon and the government to guard itself & relay needed information to protect you is clearly illogical. Hercolubus is Planet X, Nibiru, Wormwood, or THE MOST REVERED HEAVENLY BODY IN ALL ANTIQUITY. After 3660 years on its regular orbit, our 10th planet will pass again. Hercolubus’s effects on Earth, from prior passings, are recorded in ancient texts and in THE SCIENCE OF GEOLOGY & ARCHEOLOGY.

There are 50 names for Planet X. “The Destroyer” is the latest name from New Zealand.

“WHAT IS APPROACHING US?”

Father Malachi Martin worked in and around the highest echelons of the Catholic Church, had an ear to the pope, and held 3 doctorates. He explained in 1997 that the celestial body approaching us will cause millions to perish during its passage in 5-10 years. He said to look to the skies for a sign of impending doom. The sign will be in the form of a cross and everyone will see it. (Hercolubus is said to look like a red cross in the sky when it first appears)

Also, Malachi Martin has read the “Third Secret of Fatima”, which he would not talk about it with Art Bell on the air. Art did ask him, “Would millions of people perish?” Malachi replied, “It is worse than that, it is worse than you can imagine”.

The Vatican actually owns its’ own telescope named VATT (Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope) which is operated out of the Mt. Graham Observatory, located in SE Arizona.

The purpose for Mt. Graham International Observatory is explained in an interview with Art Bell. The actual time of the clip is April 5th, 1997 at 4:30AM PST. The complete broadcast begins Friday, April 4th, 1997 at 10 PM PST.

Father Malachi Martin’s background: Eminent theologian, expert on the Catholic Church, former Jesuit and professor at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute. He was trained in theology at Louvain. There he received his doctorates in Semitic Languages, Archaeology and Oriental History. He subsequently studied at Oxford and at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

From 1958 to 1964 he served in Rome, where he was a close associate of the renowned Jesuit Cardinal Augustin Bea and Pope John XXIII. Martin passed away late 1999. Some believe his death was a result of his open disclosures of the inbound planet and that the Vatican did not want to reveal that Wormwood (Biblical name for Hercolubus) was also tied to the “Third Secret of Fatima”.

It seems that the Catholic Church sponsors and engages in scientific studies and not just to prove biblical history.

As of late there’s been a rash of observatories that have closed their doors for various reasons or have been destroyed. Many will simply not point their equipment for anyone in the direction of the Orion constellation if they do remain open. Some will give an excuse that there is some sort of obstruction in the way or equipment failure.

All at once, renovations are their favorite excuse. Griffith Observatory is the latest of a handful of the nation’s oldest planetariums to undergo major renovations in recent years. Others include the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum in Chicago and the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York. Coincidental or not, there are other observatories in various countries doing the same thing at this time.

Hercolubus (Planet X) has INTENTIONALLY BEEN MADE TO SOUND RIDICULOUS and confusing for several reasons. One of which is to avoid causing panic among the world’s population.

Many websites and articles continue to be written about Hercolubus (Planet X) that spread lies and disinformation.

1.) They say Hercolubus (Planet X) only MAY exist or there’s no evidence for its existence or it comes around only once every few million years if it does exist. This first level of disinformation is widespread.

2.) The second layer of disinformation is for people that have done their homework and absolutely know that Hercolubus (Planet X) does exist. For them, the disinformation artists are saying it will not arrive in our lifetime.

3.) Lastly, for the observatories that are completely aware of Hercolubus (Planet X) and its approximate arrival time, they are saying “keep quiet and don’t worry, nothing will happen during the passage.”

Hercolubus’s MASS, HIGH-PLASMA-CHARGED MAGNETISM, and DENSITY are such that it DISRUPTS the surface of EVERY PLANET IT PASSES. In fact, history shows a few YEARS PRIOR to its passage that its far reaching electromagnetic influence changes Earth’s core flows, TRIGGERING MAJOR WEATHER CHANGES.

VOLCANIC and SEISMIC ACTIVITY start to change 3-4 decades prior to each passage. Since 1996 traditional WEATHER has CHANGED DRAMATICALLY, breaking all time records regularly. The up-tick of QUAKES, VOLCANIC INCIDENTS and changes in ELECTROMAGNETICS are being kept out of the media as much as possible.

Weather alone can falsely be blamed on global warming & sun cycles but not earth’s rumblings and solar system wide changes at the same time.

99% of the universe is made up of charged-plasma at the atomic level. Planets are densely charged plasma spheres. The approach of Hercolubus (Planet X) back into our immediate solar system is sending a tremendous amount of electrically charged plasmatic energy particles in waves to all the planets in our solar system via the filamentary magnetic field lines that criss-cross the universe. The entire Universe is a connected web of electricity and plasma is the conductor.

The media would have you believe that the pollution of our industrial civilization is the cause of the weather changes or has caused global warming over the last few years. Since all planets in our solar system are experiencing dramatic changes, how can any of this be blamed on our irresponsible actions here Earth.

Why do they fail to mention the seismic and volcanic changes occurring simultaneously?

Why would ice cores show regular and dramatic changes in Earths climate from the past?

When you understand how our sun and every other planet in our solar system are being affected by Hercolubus’s approach, you’ll see how ridiculous the media cover-up becomes.

This is the Russian perspective on earth changes. Volcanic and seismic activities have increased 400-500 percent since 1975. All planets are changing, Earth is not singled out. Basically, everything in the solar system is experiencing unusual phenomena, increased activity and unusual weather. Hard facts are going unreported by western media. Dr. Dmitriev’s work shows that the planets themselves are changing.

They are undergoing variations in their atmospheres. For example, the Martian atmosphere is getting sizably thicker and Earth’s moon is growing an atmosphere and according to Dmitriev, there is a 6,000 kilometer deep layer of Natrium that wasn’t there previously. He says that we’re having this kind of change in the upper levels of Earth’s atmosphere where HO gas is forming that wasn’t there before; it simply did not exist in the quantity that it does now. It’s not related to global warming and it’s not related to CFCs or fluorocarbon emissions or any of that stuff. It’s just showing up.

Magnetic fields and brightness of the planets are changing. The planets are experiencing sizable increases in their overall luminosity. Venus for example, is showing us marked elevations in its overall brightness. Jupiter has such a high energetic charge now that there is actually a visible tube of ionizing radiation that has formed between it and its moon. You can actually see the luminous energy tube in photographs that have been taken recently. In addition, the magnetic field strength of each planet has increased.

Uranus and Neptune appear to have had recent pole shifts. When the Voyager 2 space probe flew past Uranus and Neptune, the apparent north and south magnetic poles were sizably offset from where the rotational pole was. In one case, it was 50 degrees off and in the other case the difference was around 40 degrees, both of which are pretty big changes.

The overall changes could essentially be broken down into three categories:
• Energy field changes
• Luminosity changes
• Atmospheric changes

Natural disasters increased 410 percent between 1963 and 1993. This does not take into account the largest increases that have taken place in the last 8-9 years since then! Dr. Dmitriev did a very elaborate calculation of natural disasters, to come up with these figures. Even the Sun’s magnetic field increased by 230 percent since 1901.

So, all in all, what we’re seeing is a lot more than just what they call Earth Changes. Very, very few people are aware of the work that is being done in the Russian National Academy of Sciences in Siberia, specifically in Novosibirsk, where they are doing this research.

Part of Dr. Dmitriev’s research shows that the glowing plasma at the edge of our Solar System has recently increased 1000 percent. Higher-charged energy is in turn exciting the plasma and causing more of it to form, so you see more luminosity, more brightness. This energy is then flowing into the Sun, which in turn emits the energy and spreads it out along its equatorial plane, which is called the Ecliptic.

All this is happening all at the same time and it’s all working up to a crescendo where there is going to be a sudden shift.

CLUES GET WARM IN THE SEARCH FOR PLANET X

By JOHN NOBLE WILFORD (The New York Times); Week in Review Desk

January 30, 1983, Sunday

SOMETHING out there beyond the farthest reaches of the known solar system seems to be tugging at Uranus and Neptune. Some gravitational force keeps perturbing the two giant planets, causing irregularities in their orbits. The force suggests a presence far away and unseen, a large object that may be the long-sought Planet X. Evidence assembled in recent years has led several groups of astronomers to renew the search for the 10th planet. They are devoting more time to visual observations with the 200-inch telescope at Mount Palomar in California. They are tracking two Pioneer spacecraft, now approaching the orbit of distant Pluto, to see if variations in their trajectories provide clues to the source of the mysterious force. And they are hoping that a satellite-borne telescope launched last week will detect heat ”signatures” from the planet, or whatever it is out there.
