New Delhi, Nov 10: The solar storms emanating from the sun headed towards the earth in recent days. The conditions at the giant star are likely to continue putting communication systems including satellites at a greater risk. But several self-proclaimed scientists has claimed that the conditions remind us about the presence of Nibiru, a fictional solar system is situated on the verge of our solar system.
Nibiru consists of sun-like star, planets and satellites like the moon, is prowling on the edge of our solar system with a huge orbit of the sun. The Nibiru theorists believe that the ‘Planet X’ will pass Earth at about four million miles away pushing Earth to its destruction.
However, this is not the first time when rumours about the destruction of planet Earth are doing rounds. Similar rumours had increased in 2012 when many people made predictions regarding horrible astronomical events.
In a blog written in 2009, Senior Research Scientist Don Yeomans at NASA discarded such theories. He wrote, “Nibiru, a purported large object headed toward Earth, simply put – does not exist. There is no credible evidence – telescopic or otherwise – for this object’s existence. There is also no evidence of any kind for its gravitational effects upon bodies in our solar system.”
“The activity of the sun is cyclical with a period of roughly 11 years and the time of the next solar maximum is predicted to occur about May 2013. However, the Earth routinely experiences these periods of increased solar activity – for eons – without worrisome effects,” added Yeomans.
