‘Nibiru is Fictional,’ but Apophis Asteroid may Strike Earth April 2029

COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY: More than three decades after Carl Sagan's groundbreaking and iconic series, "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage," it's time once again to set sail for the stars. Host and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson sets off on the Ship of the Imagination to discover Earth's Cosmic Address and its coordinates in space and time in the "Standing Up in the Milky Way" Series Premiere episode of COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY airing Sunday, March 9, 2014 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

So, did you do enough science in school? If you believe in Nibiru it may be that you didn’t, according to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. “It’s just fiction,” he says of Planet X – Nibiru. It’s up there with the end-of-the-world prophecy of 2012…but we’re still standing; “[Nibiru] is a fun work of fiction.”

In deGrasse’s articulate humor he reassures the crowds. However, in another talk separate to the fictional Nibiru he discusses an asteroid called Apophis. It was discovered in December 2004, but was never really mentioned in the media. Why? deGrasse goes on to explain that it’s because the discovery was made in the same week as the catastrophic tsunami in Indonesia. If the asteroid hits, it would make the Indonesian tsunami look like a “the tide’s just rolling in.”

The Apophis asteroid – the Egyptian God of death and darkness – is the size of the rose bowl. On Friday the 13th, April 2029, Apophis “will come close enough to earth to dip below our orbiting communication satellites…it will be the biggest, closest thing ever to come to Earth in our recorded history,” he says, “now the uncertainty in that orbit includes the keyhole – a narrow region within these uncertainties…”

Neil deGrasse acknowledges that you want to change the course of the asteroid, but not with nukes. He acknowledges that there are people working on deflection possibilities for this particular scenario.

If it hits the ‘keyhole’ based on the data, it would hit Earth 7 years after – it would “hit the Pacific Ocean 500km’s West of Santa Monica.’ The crater caused would be 3 miles deep and wide in the Pacific, creating the start of a tsunami that will have a repeat cycle setting for a dozen or so times. As described by the astrophysicist, the debris that comes in with the following tsunamis’ would wipe the North American coastline clean for about a quarter mile deep.

So while you may be worried about Nibiru (Planet X) this March, consider the more plausible asteroid that is currently being tracked – the one that could hit Earth in our life time.

  1. Planet X is not fiction. The data is still being debated, but there may be a large planet out there, it would explain a lot about comets and their trajectories.

    • Sorry, the Planet X is not believable because there is no DATA as such of or about it. Many stories have been conceived upon relatively little-known tribal peoples inflating LEGEND.

  2. “Nibiru is Fictional”

    Wish he’d tell that to the red planet and the second sun, that we see in the sky, every single day.

    Oh yeah, not to mention, the photographs, taken by ordinary people, from france, to LA .


    Don’t worry, apparently, you’ll see it by the 26th of March.

    So, yeah, look up at the sun, take photo’s of it, then put it under infrared lens.

    Don’t mistake it for lens flare, that could happen too, but if you see a little red circle next to the sun, Try denying it, once you’ve seen it.

      I used to be a big fan of checkout lane tabloids also. Then I would grow up to have a rational mind and thoroughly examine the parrot food being scattered around me. Sorry if facts found out through research can’t drag you away from the Mad Hatter down the rabbit hole, but this “second sun” crapola was long ago debunked. You seriously need to brush up on the known hoax sites dumbing every one down on the internet.

    • While there may be a planet “X” out in the fringes put there is assuredly no planet approaching earth. If there were we would have already been gone quite awhile ago as this approaching object would have affected the orbit of Jupiter, which would have then affected the orbit of Mars, and thereby affecting the gravity of earth and so forth. If somehow such an approaching body would have circumvented the laws of physics and snuck up on the earth then I am sure that we would already be showing a bulge on the earth, aka the end of humanity. DOnt be ridiculous.

    • I really like reading these “naysayer” comments. Most have their heads buried deep in the sand and/or are trolls/shills. I consult astronomy charts and know full well where Jupiter, Venus, Moon and whichever Planet is mentioned. The asteroid that came through in early March was unpredictable Because it was coming from behind the Sun. That is where Nibiru will come from. The date is Unpredictable But it’s coming. Go to webcamsdemexico.com,go to webcams on this site and then Aculpuco-Quebrada. Look at that site at about 5:30pm EST and then tell me that the Sun is “normal looking. Go to Aculpuco-Marina or Del Carmen-Malicon and get Educated that “it’s coming soon”.

  3. What begs the question here is, why all the recent hype regarding asteroids? well if you were in control of a planet and an asteroid with potential devastating affects was on a collision course with Earth what would you do to contain public panic. Perhaps create a fictional planet to be debunked over and over again till everyone say’s yeah we have heard it all before, just like the boy that cried wolf. But of course it is not implausible for an asteroid to wipe us out as it has happened before, so to those who chew their tongues and nay and laugh at soothsayers and astrophysicists don’t close your minds to such possible prospects.
