Rogue Dwarf Planet to Cause Our Extinction in 2029
By: Runaway Moon
The astronomer, who is attached to a major California university research center and prefers anonymity, claims that the object, which he calls Diablo, is about half the size of Earth's moon and moving 50,000 miles per hour. If it continues unimpeded on its present course and rate of speed, it will reach Earth's orbit in late August or early September of 2029.
Other astronomers have confirmed that every 40,000 years a gravitational deflection or supernova sends one of hundreds of identified rogue dwarfs hurtling toward the inner Solar System. None will confirm the existence of Diablo or its current path toward Earth.
Both NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) have been focusing their telescopes and detection technologies on near-Earth objects or NEOs. Given their inability to monitor the vastness of space around Earth in its entirety, they might not detect an object that large until it's too close and too late. Given the limitations of current weapons technology, they couldn't stop a Diablo if they wanted to.
If the amateur astronomer's claim proves accurate twelve years from now, it will have eerie similarities to RUNAWAY MOON, a post-apocalyptic science fiction novel written by Howard Brian Edgar. Set in Southern California in 2029, Edgar's story depicts a rogue dwarf planet zooming past Earth, severely disrupting our magnetic field and smashing into the moon at 50,000 mph. The resulting bombardment rains death and destruction, setting off a chain reaction of cataclysmic natural disasters including tectonic plate fracture, massive worldwide sea level rise and supervolcano eruptions.
