Real, solid evidence of two suns **Binary Star Theory** (NOT Nibiru!)
Interesting video that talks about the possibility we do indeed have two suns. This isn't discussing ridiculous stuff about Nibiru, however, or another sun hiding somewhere in our solar system, but instead the very real possibility that we may be orbiting around the star Sirius in a 26,000 year elliptical orbit.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16970507


Let's do some math (approx. numbers - lets say +/- 10%):

Distance Sol - Sirius: 8.6 Lightyears = 81.7 trillion km (US) (Rest of the world = 81.7 billion km)

Mass Sirius A + Sirius B = 3 M-Sol

Distance Sol to barycenter = 61.3 trillion km (US) (Rest of the world = 61.3 billion km)

Lets assume a cicular orbit around the barycenter (at best - velocity in an elliptical orbit would be even higher)

Perimeter of orbit Sol = 385 trillion km (US) (Rest of the world = 385 billion km)

Assumed orbital periode of Sol around the barycenter: 26,000 years

Distance covered by Sol in 26,000 Years = 385 trillion km (US) (Rest of the world = 385 billion km)
Distance covered by Sol in 1 Years = 14.8 billion km (US) (Rest of the world = 14.8 milliard km)
Distance covered by Sol in 1 day = 40.569.215 million km
Distance covered by Sol in 1 hour = 1.7 million km
Distance covered by Sol in 1 minute = 28,173 km
Distance covered by Sol in 1 second = 469 km

Velocity of Sol around the barycenter of Sol - Sirius: 469 km/sec
Escape velocity for the Milky Way Galaxy: 320 km/s


Conclusion 1: During its first orbit around Sirius the solar system would have been catapulted out of the Milky Way Galaxy.
Conclusion 2: Sol is not in a binary system with Sirius.
Conclusion 3: This video is absolute

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19102526

The most recent estimates give 551 km/s for the escape velocity at Sol distance from the center of the Galaxy.
The orbital velocity of the Sun around the center of the Milky Way Galaxy about 220 km/s.

Galactic escape velocity: 551 km/s - 220 km/s = 331 km/s

And this calculation is for a circular orbit.
An eliptical orbit, as OP said, even with a moderate excentrity, would give a much higher velocity at periapsis (regarding the barycenter of the hypothetical system).

Re: Real, solid evidence of two suns **Binary Star Theory** (NOT Nibiru!)
The myth and folklore of ancestral peoples around the world hints at a vast cycle of time, with alternating Dark and Golden Ages. Plato called it the Great Year. Long believed to be a fairytale, there is now new astronomical evidence to show it has a basis in fact. Moreover, because it is caused by the acceleration of our Sun around another star, we learn that the Earth should soon be carried into a region of space that will have a beneficial affect on our atmosphere, nudging mankind into a higher age of consciousness.

Lost Star of Myth and Time weaves together some of the latest archaeological evidence with cutting-edge astronomy to reveal a history of the world that finally fits with myth, folklore and the archaeological record. While this book explores some of the most interesting aspects of a once advanced civilization that covered the Earth, it is really about what happens to the Earth and consciousness as our solar system moves through space in the mysterious motion known as the "precession of the equinox". This astronomical phenomenon has since Newton been attributed to local gravitational forces wobbling the Earth s axis. Lost Star now shows us in no uncertain terms that the Earth s axis does not change orientation relative to objects inside the solar system at the same rate that it changes orientation to objects outside the solar system, meaning precession must be due to our Sun s binary motion around another star.

Chapter by chapter it becomes clear that ancient cultures knew of precession, used it as the clock of the ages, understood it to be due to the solar system s motion through space, and realized this subjects the Earth to a cycle of waxing and waning stellar influences. It is these forces that affect our magnetosphere, ionosphere and indirectly create the larger seasons of the Great Year. As you will see this not only gives cause for a major rethink of human history and potential, but indicates we are approaching a tipping point in the awakening of consciousness.

The escape velocity is dependent on the distance. E.g. at the surface of the Sun Ve = 617.5 km/s, at Earth distance you need 42,1 km/s to leave the solar system.

At a distance Sirius - Sol of 8.6 Ly it is negligible.

Great discussion guys! And yes, a hippie sitting on a rock can be real evidence....if real evidence is actually discussed. I'd say check out Walter Cruttenden's site if you're genuinely interested in the subject, because there's tons of updated information on there. I'm sure he's looked into the concept of velocity extensively, though you guys are smarter than me on the math so I'm not going to attempt to refute your numbers.

That means they set an objective and try to find supportive evidence (much like the Nibidiots or creationists).
That's not science, where the conclusions follow from the evidence.
And, none of the papers from the Binary Research Institute or Walter Cruttenden have been published in peer-reviewed astronomy journals.

BTW - the BRI hangs on to Browns theory of a possible brown dwarf around the Ooorts Cloud - not Sirius.

Re: Real, solid evidence of two suns **Binary Star Theory** (NOT Nibiru!)
Interesting video that talks about the possibility we do indeed have two suns. This isn't discussing ridiculous stuff about Nibiru, however, or another sun hiding somewhere in our solar system, but instead the very real possibility that we may be orbiting around the star Sirius in a 26,000 year elliptical orbit.


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16970507


Let's do some math (approx. numbers - lets say +/- 10%):

Distance Sol - Sirius: 8.6 Lightyears = 81.7 trillion km (US) (Rest of the world = 81.7 billion km)

Mass Sirius A + Sirius B = 3 M-Sol

Distance Sol to barycenter = 61.3 trillion km (US) (Rest of the world = 61.3 billion km)

Lets assume a cicular orbit around the barycenter (at best - velocity in an elliptical orbit would be even higher)

Perimeter of orbit Sol = 385 trillion km (US) (Rest of the world = 385 billion km)

Assumed orbital periode of Sol around the barycenter: 26,000 years

Distance covered by Sol in 26,000 Years = 385 trillion km (US) (Rest of the world = 385 billion km)
Distance covered by Sol in 1 Years = 14.8 billion km (US) (Rest of the world = 14.8 milliard km)
Distance covered by Sol in 1 day = 40.569.215 million km
Distance covered by Sol in 1 hour = 1.7 million km
Distance covered by Sol in 1 minute = 28,173 km
Distance covered by Sol in 1 second = 469 km

Velocity of Sol around the barycenter of Sol - Sirius: 469 km/sec
Escape velocity for the Milky Way Galaxy: 320 km/s


Conclusion 1: During its first orbit around Sirius the solar system would have been catapulted out of the Milky Way Galaxy.
Conclusion 2: Sol is not in a binary system with Sirius.
Conclusion 3: This video is absolute

Thus from me also 1 star

I'm not saying it's conclusive, simply that it's a pretty fascinating possibility. I saw an interview with Walter Cruttenden several years ago in which he had proposed that it might be Sirius. So, I guess they've dropped that, thanks for the correction.
