The discovery of a large alien planet has fuelled hypothesis that the world predicted to unleash an apocalypse on Earth really exists.
Researchers introduced the invention of the brand new planet that is so gigantic, they’re not likely positive if it even qualifies as a planet, this week.
The snappily-titled OGLE-2016-BLG-1190Lb was seen utilizing NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope and is estimated to be over 13 occasions the mass of Jupiter. It is so giant, consultants are questioning whether or not or not it is really some form of failed star.
But, now doomsayers have speculated that it could possibly be Nibiru, or Planet X, the world that can allegedly trigger the top of Earth.
The Nibiru cataclysm is the title given to a disastrous encounter between the Earth and a big planet, which sure teams imagine will happen within the early 21st century.
Believers suppose that Nibiru is hurtling by means of house and can seem in our skies at any second.
Some customers on conspiracy idea web site Godlikeproductions.com questioned whether or not OGLE-2016-BLG-1190Lb’s discovery could possibly be proof that the top is nigh.
‘Daniel’ began a thread on the discussion board titled: “Has Nibiru Been Hiding in the Heart of Our Galaxy All Along?,” by which folks speculated concerning the existence of the apocalyptic planet.
Alternatively, researchers have speculated that OGLE may not even be a planet.
It could possibly be a “brown dwarf” – an object that has a heavier mass than the gasoline large however is not fairly as much as being a fully-fledged star.
The cutoff level is an object with between 13 and 14 occasions the mass of Jupiter. So this new discovery does fall into that class.
“Since the existence of the brown dwarf desert is the signature of different formation mechanisms for stars and planets, the extremely close proximity of OGLE-2016-BLG-1190Lb to this desert raises the question of whether it is truly a ‘planet’ (by formation mechanism) and therefore reacts back upon its role tracing the galactic distribution of planets,” defined the authors of the research .
Sadly, contemplating its 22,000 gentle years away, it is unlikely we’ll find a way nip over and take a look for ourselves any time quickly.
