Massive Dark Object Lurking at The Edge of Solar System

A huge dark object the size of Jupiter is lurking just beyond the solar system and may be hurling large chunks of ice and dust towards earth.

Planetary scientists based at the University of Louisiana said 12 years of additional data had been added to initial data gathered from a century of comet data collection. The scientists believe there is a hidden companion of the sun based somewhere near the Oort Cloud system that is hurling ice particles and rock towards the inner solar system.

The scientists have analysed the comets in the Oort cloud and deduced that 25 per-cent of them would need a nudge by a body of at least Jupiter size. They said that “something smaller than a Jovian mass would not be strong enough to perform the task”.

They are hoping the issue will be resolved within the next twelve years, as there are surveys coming on-line that will dwarf the comet sample that is present today. Scientists have been making use of WISE, an infra-red space telescope that is capable of detecting dark objects. The scientists believe that WISE will tell them one way or another whether their findings are valid or not.

    I’m really scared of those large chunks of dust. We are most certainly doomed unless Horton can hear us. Our tiny speck of dust will stand no chance against a chunk of dust!

    It’s Al Gores mother ship coming to take him home. Fingers crossed!!!

    “…whether THEIR findings are valid or not.” Learn English, idiot.

    NASA launched an infered telescope in 2003 to look for Nemesis, which is the theory that there is a brown dwarf orbiting the sun.

    they found nothing.

    even black holes emit radiation, despite not allowing visible light free, we can see them in xrays or in infrared.

    this article is 90% scare tactics, and 10% old, dis-proven fact.

    it may be another planet, but all covered up by monolyths which will turn it into a star. Let’s just call it Lucifer…

    I apologize for the ads popping up. Beyond my control I’m afraid. I have now corrected the misspelled word in the last line.

    @angry astronomer: are you sure that black holes emit radiation? that doesn\’t make sense to me. so visible light is affected by gravity differently than are infrared or x-rays?

    It sounds almost like Armageddon the movie… but a lot worse!

    I really like the topics you write for. Added you btw.

    @poop

    as I understand it x-rays don’t have mass and are created in the black hole by the crushing stresses of gravity on matter so can escape & infra red see’s the effects that the black hole has on it’s surrounding environment. perhaps a physicist/astronomer can explain it better.

    Hopefully this dark crap will filter some sunlight and reduce global warming… not that we need any further reduction in temperatures in the northeast it is like -22C this morning.. That’s you’re basic ‘global warming’ -cold temperatures and lots of snow…(??)

    X-ray, Gamma Ray, and Radio waves are the only forms of light that escape the event horizon of a dark energy mass; detection of one or more of these light waves gives us a predictive point for dark matter space.

    As for the celestial body described as Planet X; if this very large dwarf star were in the vicinity of the Oort cloud, it would be close enough to cause a dramatic perturbation of the Sun, and many other large celestial bodies in our galaxy which we currently do not see.

    It is more likely that what we are currently seeing in the Oort Cloud is being caused by the beginning of a much larger Cosmic Super Wave. When the dark energy source at the center of our galaxy consumes a very large celestial body, it extrudes a series of cosmic pulse waves of energy a combination of gamma, X, neutrino, E-M or EMR, depending on how dense the matter contained in this wave is; depends on its overall effects on the outer celestial bodies to include our own Sun and planets.

    I hope this helps you understand what we are seeing better.

    I couldn’t help reading the comments on your article. It just goes to show us that the Creator is in total control and that our imagination can only theorize reasons for the limits of what we see. All knowledge, purpose, wisdom has been hidden from the beginning of time. Good article.

    I just hope it isn’t a BLACK HOLE. Yet, so scary for the next generations to come!

    @Renato If it was a black hole, it would be pulling in the oort cloud, not launching bits of stuff our way.
