Washington, August 10: While the total solar eclipse is about to hit our planet Earth, some of the theorists claimed that after the eclipse Planet Nibiru which is having a mass about 10 times that of Earth and orbit about 20 times further from the sun than Neptune, taking a whopping 10,000 and 20,000 Earth years to make one full orbit around the sun; This Nibiru planet will collide with our Earth and –Doooooooom!
Hold On! It is true that our solar system does have Planet Nibiru but there is no threat to our planet Earth. Cheers! NASA confirmed, "Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than four billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat."
"The story started with claims Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003 but, when nothing happened, the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 - hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012.
"Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims."
NASA said if Nibiru were headed for an encounter with the Earth, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. On coming August 21, America will witness the magical ‘Solar Eclipse’ after 38 years.
