New Oort cloud discovery renews talk of Planet X

Oort CloudNew work from Carnegie's Scott Sheppard and Chadwick Trujillo of the Gemini Observatory reports the discovery of a distant dwarf planet, called 2012 VP113, which was found beyond the known edge of the solar system. This is likely one of thousands of distant objects that are thought to form the so-called inner Oort cloud. What's more, their work indicates the potential presence of an enormous planet, perhaps up to 10 times the size of Earth, not yet seen, but possibly influencing the orbit of 2012 VP113, as well as other inner Oort cloud objects.


Something very interesting happened at CERN recently – they had an accident.  The accident created a “rainbow” universe.  What does this mean, exactly?  CERN actually created a universe for 2.6 seconds.  The implications of this are both puzzling and astounding.  CERN’S “accident” all ties back to the question: what is the age of the universe?


The most widely accepted theory is that in the beginning there was a singularity and that at some point, according to modern mathematics, around 13.7 billion years ago, an event now known as The Big Bang occurred.

Space and time were created in this moment (Not a statement of fact) along with a finite amount of energy and matter in a very dense state.

But what if the math is wrong and the universe is older than we think?
