A Jupiter sized dark object lurking at the edge of the solar system ... and trillions of potential earths

8 Dec 2010

These two stories come from www.dailygalaxy.com December 7th ... and one begins by claiming comet data over the last hundred years suggests there is a dark Jupiter sized object lurking at the edge of the solar sysem - and it may be hurling ice and dust chunks towards the earth. Planetary scientist John Matese thinks there is a hidden companion to the Sun in the Oort Cloud that is responsible for the trajectories of comets. The second piece comes from a Yale University astronomer who claims there are possibly billions of earth's orbing red dwarf stars. The problem is that they are hundreds of thousands of light years away.
