A new possible planet has been found by NASA right here in our own solar system. The possible planet Tyche (pronounced “tie-key”) is believed to be a gas giant located some 1.35 trillion miles from the Sun. If this planet is in fact a planet could it possibly be the infamous planet X otherwise known as Nibiru?
Below is a simulation based on research of brown dwarf stars spawned by a heavy interest in a possible galactic body closer to us than we might ever imagine. If this is Tyche a.ka. Planet X or Nibiru, or whatever it is if it ever discovered, it will be closer to us than proxima centauri and on a friendly orbit.
Astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmire from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette study comet movements and were the first to find the planet by noticing the unusual patterns of comets in the area that seemed to be affected by a large mass swaying them in different directions. This really isn’t a brand new discovery as Matese and Whitmire have been trying to come up with the evidence of the possible Planet X since 1999 so after ten years of compiled evidence they think they may have enough to convince the rest of the scientific community.
Tyche is believed to be the size of four Jupiters, comprised of helium and hydrogen, and orbits our sun at a distance of 15,000AU (one AU, or Astronomical Unit, is the distance from the Earth to the Sun (93 million miles), 15,000AU is roughly 1/4th of a light year). This orbit puts it well within the boundaries of the Oort Cloud — a cloud of debris orbiting our sun with a radius of one light year — where long-term comets (those with an orbit greater than 200 years) originate.
NASA scientists believe that Tyche aka Nibiru is an enormous rogue gas giant planet that is 1.3 trillion miles from the Sun and crosses the Oort Cloud an area where billions of comets originate.
NASA’s WISE (Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer, which scans the sky in infrared has been scanning the sky’s mapping out hundreds of millions of objects producing millions of images might soon be pointed in that direction to see if it can pick up the distant planet. If found it will make Tyche our 9th planet.
The Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, will scan the entire sky in infrared light, picking up the glow of hundreds of millions of objects and producing millions of images.
The real question here is, is this the ancient planet Nibiru our planet X? Scientists say that if the planet does exist it’s probably not originally from our solar system but probably broke out of it’s original one and somehow got caught up in our suns gravitational pull. Making it “alien” to our own solar system. Could this planet once have harbored intelligent life? When it broke off did they have to leave the planet before everyone froze to death and they are the one’s visiting Earth on a regular basis?
It could be years before we find out if Tyche is even a planet at all and probably many, many more before we can determine if life had ever existed on the planet. The next thing to figure out is the orbit of the planet. Nibiru is said to come in and out coming close to Earth. Could this really be that planet?
COMMENTARY: I have a feeling that Tyche will be discovered soon with all the deep space orbitors we have launched into space. If Tyche turns out to be a brown dwarf star, it might not even be very visible, but appear as a very small "white speck" in an infrared image by NASA’s WISE (Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer).
Tyche has already been the subject of numerous conspiracy theorists who claim that it is a "rogue star" that will wipeout the Earth's protective magnetic layer that protects us from solar flares and solar radiation, tilt the Earth's axis or shift the magnetic poles, and cause the end of the world in 2012 as predicted in the Mayan Calender.
Even I had some fun with some of those conspiracy theories with some gangbuster blog posts, when I announced in a blog post dated September 26, 2011, that there would be an extinction-level event because Earth would be hit by comet Elenin. In another blog post dated August 9, 2o11, I asked the question: "Is Comet Elenin on a collision course with Earth? Separating Fact From Fiction."
In a blog post dated November 8, 2011, I fictioinalized what might have happened to Earth if asteroid 2005 YU55, which passed right by Earth at a distance of only 201,000 miles on November 8, 2011, had actually hit Earth. Asteroid 2005 YU55 returns for a second time in 2025, and it will pass even closer (watch out), and then for a third time on April 13, 2036. That's the date that has scientists very worried, because it might actually hit us. (Oh, shit)
On September 29, 2011, NASA conducted a panel discussion by NASA's Neowise Team that operates the WISE deep space observer, and because of its infra-red telescope, has discovered and tracked several near-Earth objects or asteroids that might present a danger to our planet. Included in the video is a discussion from a caller inquiring about Planet X or Nibiru. Amy Mainzer, NEOWISE Principal Investigator for JPL/NASA, and if I may say so a bonafide NASA babe, tells a caller asking about Planet X:
"Yes... this is Amy Mainzer and I'm happy to answer this one... Planet X is not coming to get us!
In any event, Tyche a.k.a. Nibiru or Planet X, or whatever the object turns out to be, let's just hope that it never poses a danger to Earth or any of the other planets in our solar system.
