Fifth Giant Gas Planet In Our Solar System?

The Kuiper Belt is a population of icy bodies beyond the orbit of Neptune. A particularly puzzling and up-to-now unexplained feature of the Kuiper Belt is the so-called "kernel".


The four gas giant planets in our solar system - Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune -- may have a long-lost relative. According to a new study, our system was once home to a fifth gas giant that suddenly vanished some 4 billion years ago after a run-in with Neptune.

Indirect evidence for this lost world is seen in a strange cluster of icy objects -- called the "kernel" in the Kuiper Belt. That's the vast region of primordial debris that encircles the sun beyond the orbit of Neptune.

"The Kuiper Belt is a perfect clue to understanding how the solar system evolved since its formation," study author Dr. David Nesvorny, an astronomer at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colo., told New Scientist.

For the study, Nesvorny created computer simulations of Neptune and the "kernel" cluster as they were 4 billion years ago in the early solar system. At the time, the cluster is believed to have been in Neptune's gravitational grasp. But then, according to the simulations, something happened to cause the cluster to escape Neptune's gravitational pull -- placing the cluster and Neptune in their present locations.

This is where the lost planet comes in: the simulations suggest that it must have been another gas giant that bumped Neptune and caused it and the "kernel" to part ways.

The missing planet bumped into Neptune before disappearing into the abyss of space.

The new study was published online in The Astronomical Journal on August 10, 2015.

Massive UFO near the sun shoots out into space

Images captured by NASA's SDO-AIA 171 satellite show a massive spherical object near the sun until it shoot out into space.  According to NASA, the strange appearance is actually a type of solar activity called a prominence, a type of solar activity, which is normally attached to the sun before shooting out into space, like the infamous UFO/prominence image from 2012.  But the object captured on October 11, 2021 is not attached to the sun, we first see an elongated shadow moving through the plasma clouds before the actually spherical object becomes visible. So, instead of a prominence could this have been a massive spacecraft?  

Possible Vector Shaped Entity Leaving The Sun

It’s remarkable that NASA and other space agencies are using the Vector 7 /Chevron symbol, which is a symbol or sign that refers to the living materials of the very multiverse itself, the power to control time space, the ability to wind back and alter events.  What do they know?  On September 15, 2021 the SOHO EIT 284 satellite captured a black Vector/Chevron shaped object leaving the sun and it doesn't look like a solar flare. Could this object refer to what we see on the logos of the space agencies? 'Living Material'?  

Hidden Image Exposed in Da Vinci's "The Last Supper" Painting!

Looking at the famous Da Vinci, “The Last Supper” picture, mirroring and inverting the picture in the correct way, inverting it right down the middle you get a hidden image that is unbelievable. What is revealed is absolutely Jaw Dropping! The question is, what did Da Vinci Know that he is trying to reveal?
