[/quote] Preliminary results from 2011 were not too promising... http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EPSC-DPS2011/EPSC-DPS2011-75-1.pdf "Based on the theoretical models of Burrows et al.  we have searched the WISE Preliminary Catalog, which covers 57% of the sky, for evidence of a 4.5 Gyr old (1-4) MJ planet in the outer Oort cloud. The search was restricted to sources lying within 10 degrees of a previously identified great circle . No candidate objects were identified." That was only for the first half of the data. The other half has since been released and is no doubt being searched by Matese and Whitmire right now. Here's their contact info if you want to pester them: http://www.ucs.louisiana.edu/~jjm9638/ http://www.ucs.louisiana.edu/~dpw9254/ [/quote]
i havenet been following WISE since last year, when NASA announced that WISE completed its IR survey of the entire sky. and will announce the results sometime in 2011. it is now late july. NASA said if theres a dark brown dwarf within proximity , WISE will detect it. and will either elliminate or confirm the rumor of a small dark second sun.
NASA even renamed this entity, calling it Tyche, instead of Nemesis. to make it sound friendlier and not scare people. so did NASA WISE find Tyche? NASA also said the second sun might even already be in its catalog of stars but wasnt known as the second sun in question.
so i want to know, did WISE find the dark brown dwarf, our second sun, Tyche?
