Scientists believe that most, whether not entire, sun-like stars are born with a twin. Evidence also suggests that our solar system’s sun’s twin may be responsible for knocking the comet that killed the dinosaurs toward soil.
We fill long known that the dinosaurs were killed by a catastrophic comet impact with the soil’s surface but what whether there was some foul play afoot? Astronomers fill discovered that our sun may fill been born with a twin, and an evil one, at that. One speculation states that every 27 million years, the evil twin, aptly dubbed Nemesis, returns to wreck havoc on the solar system. They believe that the star lobs a few meteors in our direction as it makes its may through the outer limits of the solar system.
Research has lead scientists to believe that most stars are born with at least one sibling. According to UC Berkeley astronomer Steven Stahler, “We ran a series of statistical models to see whether we could account for the relative populations of young single stars and binaries of entire separations in the Perseus molecular cloud, and the only model that could reproduce the data was one in which entire stars form initially as wide binaries.”
