Planet 10 The Destroyer?


Lots of news on the web about the 10th planet, Planet X, Nibiru, The Destroyer of planets and\or a Brown dwarf star entering our solar system or has been a part of it from the beginning. Many reports claim a 3600-year orbit around our star which if we look at history from 3600-years ago to 7200-years ago and even 10,800-years ago we've had some trouble here on Earth. Going deeper into this subject we need some more answers and many are working on just that. 

Be safe everyone, we're not in Kansas anymore. 

It has been said, "if the Chicago Cubs ever win the World Series, it would be the end of the world." Well, Cubs Win!  So even if the world was in harm's way from another heavenly body, utter destruction doesn't seem to be in the cards because she's been here before. Life and death are a way of life here on Earth and for the humans, ours is to reason while heading towards a brick wall.  To leave a log of our accomplishments and failures, a T-shirt if you will explaining, "Try not to Suck!"    

From UF News: Everything we know about the formation of solar systems might be wrong, says the University of Florida astronomy professor Jian Ge and his postdoc, Bo Ma. They’ve discovered the first “binary–binary” – two massive companions around one star in a close binary system, one so-called giant planet and one brown dwarf, or “failed star” The first, called MARVELS-7a, is 12 times the mass of Jupiter, while the second, MARVELS-7b, has 57 times the mass of Jupiter. 

Astronomers believe that planets in our solar system formed from a collapsed disk-like gaseous cloud, with our largest planet, Jupiter, buffered from smaller planets by the asteroid belt. In the new binary system, HD 87646, the two giant companions are close to the minimum mass for burning deuterium and hydrogen, meaning that they have accumulated far more dust and gas than what a typical collapsed disk-like gaseous cloud can provide. They were likely formed through another mechanism. The stability of the system despite such massive bodies in close proximity raises new questions about how protoplanetary disks form. The findings, which are now online, will be published in the November issue of the Astronomical Journal.

From NASA Science Beta: July 29, 2005: "It's definitely bigger than Pluto." So says Dr. Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology who announced today the discovery of a new planet in the outer solar system. 

The planet, which hasn't been officially named yet, was found by Brown and colleagues using the Samuel Oschin Telescope at Palomar Observatory near San Diego. It is currently about 97 times farther from the sun than Earth, or 97 Astronomical Units (AU= 93 million miles). For comparison, Pluto is 40 AU from the sun. 

This places the new planet more or less in the Kuiper Belt, a dark realm beyond Neptune where thousands of small icy bodies orbit the sun. The planet appears to be typical of Kuiper Belt objects--only much bigger. Its sheer size in relation to the nine known planets means that it can only be classified as a planet itself, Brown says.

Galactic Orbit
Something to keep in mind, our solar system orbits around the center of the Milky Way.  One trip around is referred to a galactic year which takes 225 to 250 million years!  The Earth has made this trip 20 times, (using the figure of 4.5 billion / 225 million) humans have never been on this galactic trip.  It will take 2,812,500 human generations (average age of 80) to complete one trip, enjoy the ride.  We're not in Kansas anymore, space is fluid, everything is in constant motion.

Immeasurable Heaven

Time now to examine an even bigger picture!

Superclusters: The regions of space that are densely packed with galaxies are the biggest structures in the Universe.  But scientists have struggled to define exactly where one supercluster ends and another begins.  Now, a team based in Hawaii has come up with a new technique that maps the Universe according to the flow of galaxies across space. Redrawing the boundaries of the cosmic map, they redefine our home supercluster and name it Laniakea, which means ‘immeasurable heaven’ in Hawaiian.
