Hadn’t heard that before, but apparently I’m slow to the table:
NASA scientists have reportedly confirmed that the planet Nibiru will collide with Earth in November of this year.
The Nibiru collision with Earth in 2012 has been predicted for a long time, but astrophysicists, cosmologists and astronomers around the world have now come to a consensus that Earth will indeed collide with the planet, which lies just outside Pluto.
Okay, so in order for a planet to collide with Earth next week, one would have to assume it’s probably pretty visible right now. Looking in the sky, I see nothing. However, I do see a headline, from, this week?
Meet CFBDSIR2149, what looks very much like a rogue planet—one that doesn’t orbit a star—and may be the closest example of one ever seen.
Could this be the “secret confirmation”?
I doubt it. As cool as this thing is, it’s 100 light years away. It might be something to worry about in 50,000 years or so, but next week is pretty safe.

That's the story. Apparently it's pretty close to us, AND, it has a red dwarf sun ( that's what we got ). In other words, it could be just like Earth in all the ways it takes to support human-lik...

For the last few years, scientists have been "discovering" planets in other solar systems. Now, "finding" rocks orbiting far away suns doesn't excite me too much. Unlike some people, I have never...

This is pretty cool:
See that little dot in the upper left hand side of the pic? That's a pic of the first planet outside of our solar system possibly circling a sun something like ours. N...

Dang, that long title is guaranteed to screw up some formatting. But, it addresses a whole bunch of my posts very well. What got this post going was a recently released article written by Ian O'N...

Apparently while I was distracted with Geek Goddesses and Miss California side-boob panty shots, Jupiter lit again. According to some, it's a small sun now, bestowing blessed light upon the Earth....
