Back in 1972, NASA launched the space probe Pioneer 10, its main goal was to search for a mysterious 10th planet in our Solar System or just beyond. This search led NASA to make a surprising press release 20 years later.
In March 1992 NASA released a press interview claiming, "unexplained deviations in orbits of Uranus and Neptune points to a large outer solar system body "4 to 8" Earth masses on a highly tilted orbit, beyond 7 billion miles from the sun. In the past few decades, astronomers have joined the search, looking for 1 more planet in our solar system. They named the elusive object, Planet X, meaning both unknown and 10. "Astronomers are so sure of the 10th planet they think there is nothing left to do but to name it." Ray T. Reynolds, NASA (NASA press release, 1992).
But we have to go back even earlier to try and understand just what NASA was looking for. Sixty years ago, on April 1, 1960, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) launched TIROS-1, the world’s first successful meteorological satellite. It was a great success for the fledgeling NASA which had been formed in October 1958 after the former Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to be successfully placed in orbit around Earth on October 4, 1957, which, resulted in the space race between the USA and the Soviet Union. That is the official story, however, the true story is actually shrouded in intrigue and mystery.
Two months after the Russian Sputnik 1 was launched an event on our Sun occurred which left the science community to this day baffled. The USSR launched Sputnik 1, their first artificial satellite in space on October 1957, followed by Explorer 1, on January 31, 1958, the first satellite launched by the United States. However, a month earlier, something happened on our Sun on the 24th and 25th of December 1957 which defies logic, defies physics and science even to this day.
Our Sun went crazy, ballistic, a record number of sunspots, (503) crackled away on our Sun for two days. The period described above was solar cycle 19, the nineteenth solar cycle since 1755 when extensive recording of solar sunspot activity began. According to NASA, solar cycle, 19 lasted 10.5 years, beginning in April 1954 and ending in October 1964, about average for a full solar cycle. The number of sunspots witnessed on the Sun during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day 1957 (503), however, was anything but average and alarmed scientists so much at the time, that an International Geophysical Year was declared at the peak of this solar cycle to bring the Russian and US scientists onto the same page to try and find an answer to the phenomena, after the cold-war silence.
Something crazy happened here on Earth too!
What also happened in 1957 was an unprecedented incredible spike in major quakes, magnitude 6 or higher, in many ways this event was just as alarming as the sunspots themselves. An astounding 204 major quakes were recorded in 1957, the most in any year in history apart from the great Honshu quake of 2011 when 207 major quakes were recorded in that year, however, more than 70 major fore and aftershocks, mag 6 or higher were related to the Honshu quake meaning without the great Honshu quake the 2011 major quake total would have been just 130'ish, a below-average year.What could have caused our planet to go from 29 major quakes, mag 6 or higher in 1947 to 204 ten years later in 1957?
After a subtle decline in major quakes, mag 6 or higher during the second world war, 1950 witnesses an incredible spike in major quakes, mag 6 or higher which have continued into the 2000s and defines logic. All data from the US Geological Survey, (USGS) compiled by Gary Walton.
15 years later in 1972, NASA launched the space probe Pioneer 10, its main goal was to search for a mysterious 10th planet in our Solar System or just beyond and the famous press release 20 years later claiming, "unexplained deviations in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune points to a large outer solar system body 4 to 8 Earth masses on a highly tilted orbit, beyond 7 billion miles from the sun. Ray T. Reynolds, NASA (NASA press release, 1992).
Why Does NASA Think It's There?
Astronomers studying the Kuiper Belt have noticed some of the dwarf planets and other small, icy objects tend to follow orbits that cluster together. By analyzing these orbits, the Caltech team, The California Institute of Technology predicted the possibility that a large, previously undiscovered planet may be hiding far beyond Pluto. They estimate the gravity of this potential planet might explain the unusual orbits of those Kuiper objects. And of course the unexplained deviations in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune.
What is NASA's thoughts on Planet X?
The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) researchers have found mathematical evidence suggesting there may be a "Planet X" deep in the solar system. This hypothetical Neptune-sized planet orbits our Sun in a highly elongated orbit far beyond Pluto. The object, which the researchers have nicknamed "Planet Nine," could have a mass about 10 times that of Earth and orbit about 20 times farther from the Sun on average than Neptune. It may take between 10,000 and 20,000 Earth years to make one full orbit around the Sun. NASA
What caused the sun to go ballistic on Christmas Eve and Christmas day 1957 we will never know, however, the date is significant in many topics tearing the scientific world apart today such as the Milankovitch Climate Theory, revealing that the planet is, in fact, changing due to extraneous factors that have absolutely nothing to do with human activity, while other scientists today claim our climate is warming due to human activity and their use of co2.
Other factors though, occurred around the late 50s early 60s which are truly astounding. For instance, graphs showing natural disasters suddenly spike after the second world war and continue to rise, the same happens to major earthquakes, Tornadoes, volcano eruptions and yes the rise in global temperatures. Below is the graph from Our World In Data showing how natural disaster events began to climb after the second world war.
Is there a clue in the Bible?
Revelation 16:17 The seventh one poured out his bowl on the air. At this a loud voice came out of the sanctuary from the throne, saying: “It has come to pass!” 18 And there were flashes of lightning and voices and thunders, and there was a great earthquake unlike any that had occurred since men came to be on the earth, so extensive and so great was the earthquake. 19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell; and Babylon the Great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath. 20 Also, every island fled, and mountains were not found. 21 Then great hailstones, each about the weight of a talent, fell from heaven on the people, and the people blasphemed God because of the plague of hail, for the plague was unusually great.
