Let's find Planet X started by Ed

Hi All, worth a re-post, Sirivedin's thread from last summer, on the old forum
"Russian people prepare their houses for Planet X."
It was in Russian.

Hi everyone,
I found a very interesting video clip of the construction company in Russia that built the extremely strong houses to prepare for the passing of planet X. I think they have some useful techniques that we can apply to our safe house.
Check this out !

Hi YowBarb,

    Thanks for a re-post. That's why I received several comments, recently.

Hi Supar,
Hi All,
Some miscellaneous discussions


1) New Scientist (United Kingdom)
A world wide science magazine. They published a featured article about the search for
an unknown planet in the outer solar system. It is referred as 'Planet X' in the 11 January
2008 issue of the magazine. link doesn

These are a little sensational and the time frame may be a bit off - maybe some of it is even
satirical -but this shows some more discussion.
Some of these stories may get people thinking about their survival:

AN invisible star may be circling the Sun and causing deadly comets to bombard the Earth, scientists said yesterday.
The brown dwarf - up to five times the size of Jupiter - could be to blame for mass extinctions that occur here every 26 million
The star - nicknamed Nemesis by Nasa scientists - would be invisible as it only emits infrared light and is incredibly distant.
Nemesis is believed to orbit our solar system at 25,000 times the distance of the Earth to the Sun.
As it spins through the galaxy, its gravitational pull drags icy bodies out of the Oort Cloud - a vast sphere of rock and dust twice
as far away as Nemesis.
These "snowballs" are thrown towards Earth as comets, causing devastation similar to the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs
65 million years ago.
Now Nasa boffins believe they will be able to find Nemesis using a new heat-seeking telescope that began scanning the skies in
The Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer - expected to find a thousand brown dwarfs within 25 light years of the Sun - has
sent back a photo of a comet possibly dislodged from the Oort
Scientists' first clue to the existence of Nemesis was the bizarre orbit of a dwarf planet called Sedna.
Boffins* believe its unusual, 12,000-year-long oval orbit could be explained by a massive celestial body.
Mike Brown, who discovered Sedna in 2003, said: "Sedna is a very odd object - it shouldn't be there.
"The only way to get on an eccentric orbit is to have some giant body kick you - so what is out there?"
Professor John Matese, of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, said most comets come from the same part of the Oort Cloud.
He added: "There is statistically significant evidence that this concentration of comets could be caused by a companion to the

Word Note: Boffin

In the slang of the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India and South Africa, boffins are scientists, medical doctors, engineers, and other people engaged in technical or scientific research. The word boffin (or boff—often as an insult[1]) can also be used to refer to any particularly clever person.
