Could ‘Planet X’ Cause Comet Catastrophes on Earth?

This is an artist's impression of a Kuiper belt object in orbit around the sun -- could a massive planet also be out there?

This is an artist’s impression of a Kuiper belt object in orbit around the sun – could a massive planet also be out there?

As astronomers track down more clues as to the existence of a large world orbiting the sun in the outer fringes of the solar system, a classic planetary purveyor of doom has been resurrected as a possible trigger behind mass extinctions on Earth.

Yes, I’m talking about “Planet X.” And yes, there’s going to be hype.

Before we dive into comet impacts, extinctions and possible exciting planet discoveries, let’s look at the dramatic history of Planet X.

Planetary Discoveries: The Case of the Earthlike Planet

An exciting planetary discovery, just reported, spilled over from the scientific publications to the general media. Radio and television stations announced in headline news that “Another planet like Earth discovered”; The New York Times presented the news more accurately: SEARCH FINDS FAR-OFF PLANET AKIN TO EARTH.

Planetary Discoveries: Brother, It’s Hot Out There!

The assertion that the Anunnaki came from a planet (Nibiru) whose orbit extends far out in our solar system has repeatedly led to the question: How could life exist so far away from the Sun, where it is extremely cold and everything freezes?

My answer has been that we need not go that far out to freeze to death, just rising above Earth’s surface would do the trick. It is the planet’s atmosphere that retains the warmth, be it warmth obtained from the Sun, or from an internal source of heat. The crucial issue for the Anunnaki, I explained, was to prevent the loss of Nibiru’s atmosphere; they sought to do that with a shield of gold particles, and they came here to obtain the gold.

Puzzling Photographs from Mars Need Explanation!

NASA has released recent photographs taken by the Mars Rover Spirit, after it had climbed out of the crater in which it had landed and took panoramic pictures from the crater’s top. The photographs captured, according to JPL/NASA, a “dust devil” in the distance (about 2 miles away).

But as one looks closely at the photographs – there are many of them – one notices incredible features: What looks like a long sand covered wall, a black stone ring, a sand blown conical structure & rectangular areas marked off by stone boundaries…

Going to Mars: What is NASA Looking For?

The planet Mars is back in the news. This time, in spite of preceding failures (by Japan, Britain) of Mars missions, man-made Landers and their robotic rovers – NASA’s Spirit and Opportunity — made it safely and successfully to the Red Planet. A spacecraft launched by the European Space Agency, Mars Express -– a companion to the British failed lander/rover mission -– is safely in orbit around Mars. And the initial indications, and photographs, already suggest that the assumption underlying these missions will be proven true; That Mars was once a planet with water -– rivers, lakes, perhaps even seas; and that some of that water is still there.

Going to Mars: Was The “Face” Depicted 4,500 Years Ago?

The successful landing by NASA of two robotic rovers on Mars earlier this year was an occasion for joy and expectation – joy because so many of the preceding attempts (including by the Japanese and the British) have failed, and expectation of obtaining confirmation that Mars was once a watery planet.
