There are many conspiracy theories involving space or astronomy: people claim the Apollo 11 moon landing wasn’t real, or that the Illuminati and Freemasons were lizard-people.
The last theory is the Nibiru getting close to our solar system, ready to wreak havoc and end our world. But what do the researchers at the American Space Agency think about this mysterious planet?
There is a Mayan prophecy predicting that our world will end when Earth, the Sun and “Nibiru” will be in alignment. When skies turned red on 19 September in Cincinnati, US, people captured the events and posted them on the internet. It didn’t need much to spur new chatter about the imminent apocalypse brought over by Planet Nine.
According to the believers, the giant planet will knock ours and destroy Earth as we know it.
NASA’s Opinions on Planet Nine
Back in 2012, NASA responded to the famous 21 December end of the world event. On 22 December they have released a video explaining why we are still alive and that the claim was a hoax.
They explain the Mayan accomplishments, and advancements, adding that there is a possibility “Planet X” could exist. Six senior NASA researchers discussed a possible “Planet X” (Nibiru or Planet Nine).
They agreed that there could be a hypothetical planet right at the edge of our solar system and earlier this year, NASA even released an article saying that Caltech researchers found evidence of a Planet deep in the solar system.
“It’s too early to say with certainty there’s a so-called Planet X. What we’re seeing is an early prediction based on modeling from limited observations. It’s the start of a process that could lead to an exciting result,” explained the director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA, Jim Green.
The Caltech report explains that the object in the Kuiper Belt has a specific alignment which would mean that they follow the orbit of a larger body – could that be the mysterious planet?
Why is Nibiru a Hoax?
The prophecy saying that a planet would come crashing into us is a hoax because if it were real, the planet would be seen with the naked eye – a long time before crashing into Earth.
