Re: Here's what a brown dwarf would do to the solar system on a 3600 year orbit...
Astro, just out of curiosity, would much change from the analysis if, for example, the orbit of a brown dwarf were longer, say 10,500 years? Or would the basics remain the same?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1558527


Where does that number come from? It would be basically the same, just slower.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


Basically the same, yet slower. Okay, I agree with you. Once it left, would that give our solar system enough time to re-stabalize, so to speak, and as it got closer again, it would start to slowly cause disruptions?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1558527


No, you're talking millions of years, at which point the orbit would be so highly elliptical that it is quite possible "Nibiru" would be ejected by its interactions with the planets on the first orbit.

Dr. Astro is it possible that all the planets are closer to the sun due to the slowing of the sun due to the fluffy cloud we supposedly have run into?

The solar system would not be a very stable or pleasant place if there were even a minimum mass brown dwarf passing through it every 3600 years...

I don't know how many of my fellow posters here actually know professional astronomers.

I am lucky to know two fairly well, as they are affiliated with ASU and other Arizona Astronomy programs, both as teachers and hobbyists.

We discuss "Dr. Astromut" and his incessant threads. These men I know are in their 50's, family men, VERY successful and happy guys - BIG BRAINS on these guys.

What they all love about Astro (keep in mind these guys have worked at JLP, Lockheed Martin and others) is his ARROGANCE.

These men are REAL scientists, and all of them say NEVER SAY NEVER in science. In any field.

The comments regarding our ignorance of how gravity really works drives that point home.

Furthermore, who cares?

He may just be a young, arrogant dude that like to pull this passive aggressive (that's my expertise Astro, psychology, and you are FASCINATING) thread bashing to feel important in his little existence.

I told him earlier that this was gonna bite him in the ass.

Well I know Rirchard Kowalski, who leads the UofA NEO detecting facility on Mt. Lemmon near Tucson. When we were getting a bunch of NEOs I asked him about this web site and some of the things that were being claimed. He knew nothing about it.

I'm not saying your full of it but why would professional astronomers from ASU know about some amateur like Astro Nut?

Ok, had todo a quick wiki on that to know what it was. AHA! see, celestial bodies DO evolve in unison(just as animal do with Earth!). If a phenomenon as significant as a tidal lock is possible, why not the "Nemesis" theory?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7916217

I'm sorry but that's a giant non-sequitur. That makes no sense whatsoever.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro



Ok, I am confused. How are you not understanding what I am saying? I will say again.(or maybe you are losing track of conversation with me, seeing as you have many going at once, this is not un plausible)

Tidal locking is a known phenomenon, and it acts in a PRECISE PATTERN, if such a significant pattern happens rite here, why should an equally significant pattern else where be ruled out so quickly just because it would need to be so precise?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7916217

You're not making any sense at all. Tidal locking has nothing to do with the claim being dealt with here.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


I am thinking you have lost track of subject. I was say that Nubiru could revolve around not around our sun, but around a partner of our sun. This planet makes extreamly close passes to our sun, even swinging around it(so I geuss it revolves around both!(hypotheticly)).

you say this is impluasable.

I am saying that that with enough speed, planet could maintain escape velocity after swing past sun and continue to other sun, regaining its speed, and then repeating the cycle.

You say planet would most likely shoot out of solar system all together.

I am saying solar system could be locked in a precise pattern, so that when planet escapes suns gravity, it is picked back up by partner sun, regains speed, and then returns again in 3600 years(six is perfect number, 3600 is six six hundreds, seems kinda cool huh?). In order for this to happen, system must be in precise pattern, like animals are in pattern with Earth.

You are saying such patterns do not happen in space. Then you are saying that such patterns as precise as tidal locks are somewhat common. you are contradicting yourself, and now saying I am not making sense.

What is I am missing?

I'm not sure what point you are trying for. A Jupiter sized object going through the solar system every 3600 years would have ejected most of the planets long ago. You only need a trivial understanding of gravity to know that.

WHy should a planet that leaves the hill sphere of the sun not join back up? Said object revolves around two stars, always maintains velocity to escape hill sphere of each, yet while escaping one, it is thrown into the other.

Actually, this is what it says verbatim:

"It is likely but not a foregone conclusion that WISE could confirm whether or not Tyche exists."

You know, here's what's so amusing. You are more certain that there is not a brown dwarf out there than NASA is. Incredible!
 Quoting: Cassandra's Echo


Tcyhe != Nibiru. At all. Tyche is a hypothetical planet at Oort cloud distances. It has nothing to do with any object of any kind having a 3600 year orbit, nor does it have anything to do with an object approaching the inner solar system.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


And you know this...how?
 Quoting: Cassandra's Echo

Because the theory is specific as to its location in the solar system, ie, oort cloud distances.
Tyche's existence has only been the subject of recent speculation.
 Quoting: cass

Irrelevant, the theory is specific as to its distance.
If it does exist, you have absolutely no clue where this object was located 3600 years ago.
 Quoting: cass

Clearly you don't understand how orbits work and how orbital distance relates to orbital period.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


Dude: You stake every argument on "known" laws and properties of physics, orbital periods, orbital distances and other models that have only been in existence for what, 50 years or less. Maybe 100? Every thought in your head is based on a sliver of knowledge developed over a sliver of time. That's all you've got. Nothing else. The universe is hundreds of billions of years old, and yet you think you have figured out the answers based on a body of knowledge that is the equivalent of a flyspeck on the windshield of time.

I can't decide if you are more arrogant than naive, or simply both. Regardless, it is pointless for anyone to attempt to reason with someone who thinks that the lion's share of answers to the mysteries of the universe have been discovered during the 20th century. Galileo would have had a helluva time with you. The world would be flat in your mind until the "known" laws of physics proved otherwise.

We don't know shit, and every day professional physicists and astronomers are realizing this - especially in these times. If they can admit it, you might consider doing the same.

You're suggesting a free return trajectory, but such trajectories have to be very, very carefully engineered and deliberately steered, and even then it's not always doable two-ways. Apollo's free return trajectory was a one-way return once, that's it. If you can construct a stable free-return trajectory between a brown dwarf and the sun that works two-ways indefinitely despite the perturbing effects of the planets and place the brown dwarf outside the inner solar system I would be highly, highly impressed.

Re: Here's what a brown dwarf would do to the solar system on a 3600 year orbit...
You say planet would most likely shoot out of solar system all together.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7916217

I'm saying a planet outside its object's hill sphere is not going to re-join it, period. If it's traveling above solar escape velocity, it's not going to come back to the sun and most likely the main body it had previously orbited will be ejected as well.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


WHy should a planet that leaves the hill sphere of the sun not join back up? Said object revolves around two stars, always maintains velocity to escape hill sphere of each, yet while escaping one, it is thrown into the other.

Why is this impossible as you make it to be?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7916217

You're suggesting a free return trajectory, but such trajectories have to be very, very carefully engineered and deliberately steered, and even then it's not always doable two-ways. Apollo's free return trajectory was a one-way return once, that's it. If you can construct a stable free-return trajectory between a brown dwarf and the sun that works two-ways indefinitely despite the perturbing effects of the planets and place the brown dwarf outside the inner solar system I would be highly, highly impressed.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro



You claim that the moon is locked in Tidal lock. Can you show me the math and simulation as to where two objects identical to Earth and moon would evolve in such a way? I am geussing no. And I cannot prove the argument I am making is true, but as you said, with the rite math, it could be done. That is what I wanted to hear.

And If I'm not mistaken, I have read about people theorizing the idea of a continuous free return trajectory to utilize as a tractor beam type thing, shooting space rock around our earth and moon, in order to keep moon from flying away.

So far, the mission's discoveries of previously unknown objects include an ultra-cold star or brown dwarf, 20 comets, 134 near-Earth objects (NEOs), and more than 33,000 asteroids in the main belt between Mars and Jupiter.

LMFAO! You are such an idiot. I want to frame this quote from you on my wall. They did not claim to discover an ultra-cold star or brown dwarf in the main belt between mars and jupiter. They said they found 33,000 asteroids there, completely separate from the ultra-cold brown dwarf (which was light years away).

As far as I know, no such discoveries have been made. But isn't believing just because you are told just as foolish as believing what has not beentold?

You claim that the moon is locked in Tidal lock.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7916217

That's a natural consequence of gravity between the moon and earth.
time to tidal lock ~ (w*a^6*I*Q)/(3G*mp^k2*R^5)
w = initial spin rate
a = semi-major axis of the satellite
I ~ 0.4*ms*R^2 moment of inertia of satellite
Q = dissipation function of satellite
G = gravitational constant
mp = mass of planet
ms = mass of satellite
k2 = tidal Love number of the satellite
R = radius of the satellite

Show me your free-return trajectory between the sun deep within the inner solar system and a brown dwarf in an elliptical orbit outside the inner solar system that is stable. Go on, show me.
