FORBES - It’s been a while since we’ve heard about that made-up rogue planet Nbiru, which some believed would pop-up to collide with or otherwise majorly disrupt Earth’s orbit, spelling doom for all of us.
This, of course, never happened as a result of the fictional world not being real. But researchers have long wondered what the impact might be if another world were to be added to our solar system.
In particular, a new study looks at what it would mean for our planet if an oversized Earth-like object were to be somehow dropped in between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
The scenario was run through some computer simulations by Stephen Kane, a professor of planetary science at University of California Riverside, and the results are just about as bad as if Nbiru were actually real.
