Lately, Planet Nine is taking heat for almost every disastrous event that has happened in our solar system. Some say the eluding planet is to blame for the extinction of dinosaurs, some that it might cause our extinction. Others are just convinced that the evidence of the planet’s existence are forged, others that NASA is hiding valuable information from them. Whatever the theory, Planet Nine is taking heat.
In 1935, Erwin Schrödinger, an Austrian physicist performed an experiment in order to scientifically demonstrate the term “paradox”. In a view to do that, Schrödinger placed a cat and a flask of poison in a box.
Now, while the cat was in the box, nobody knew if the container was broken or not, thus if the cat is alive or not. Before opening the container, the cat was both dead and alive at the same time. The only way to find out the truth was to open the box.
This is exactly what is currently happening with Planet Nine. The elusive celestial body exists and doesn’t exist at the same time. While there are several indirect pieces of evidence of its existence, the researchers never managed to get a glimpse of it, thus making the planet a paradox.
Planet Nine Destroyed the Dinosaurs
A former astrophysicist, now college math professor, is convinced that Planet Nine is to blame for the mass extinction of the dinosaurs.
According to his theory, which is based on previous Planet Nine research, the elusive planet has a very wide orbit around the Sun. It takes a couple of thousands of years for it to complete a single rotation. And during this time, the planet passes through the Kuiper belt.
Now, according to the theory, the last time when Planet Nine passed through the debris belt that lies beyond Neptune, it interfered with the trajectory of several comets.
These bodies then started heading towards the Sun, some even crashing into different planets that got in their way. The math professor believes that one, or several of those comets, directly caused the dinosaur extinction.
Either by hitting the planet or by disintegrating near the atmosphere, the cloud of dust and debris caused by the comets stopped the Sun’s rays from reaching the Earth.
This meant that plants died, oxygen supplies were momentarily cut off, and the mega fauna that roamed the Earth vanished, leaving only several living organisms behind them.
Ever since the a paper stating its existence was published this February, Planet Nine is taking heat for all of the bad things that have ever happened in our solar system.
