A star heading this way could knock millions of asteroids towards Earth. Researchers have known for a while that a star called Gliese 710 is headed straight for our Solar System, but they have now worked out precisely when it should arrive.

A star heading this way could knock millions of asteroids towards Earth

The star is currently hurtling through space at about 32,000 mph (51,499 km/h), and is around 64 light-years away. (One light-year is around 5,878,000,000,000 miles, or 9,461,000,000,000 kilometres.) Gliese 710 is about half the size of our Sun, and is set to approach Earth in 1.35 million years, according to a paper published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics in November. And when it arrives, the star could end up a mere 77 light-days away from Earth - one light-day being the equivalent of how far light travels in one day, which is about 16 billion miles (26 billion kilometres), the researchers worked out.

As far as we know, Gliese 710 isn't set to collide directly with Earth, but it will be passing through the Oort Cloud, a shell of trillions of icy objects at the furthest reaches of our Solar System. Human - Wikipedia. Humans (taxonomically Homo sapiens) are the only extant members of the subtribe Hominina.

Human - Wikipedia

The Hominina are sister of the Chimpanzees with which they form the Hominini belonging to the family of great apes. They are characterized by erect posture and bipedal locomotion; high manual dexterity and heavy tool use compared to other animals; open-ended and complex language use compared to other animal communications; and a general trend toward larger, more complex brains and societies.[3][4] Early hominins—particularly the australopithecines, whose brains and anatomy are in many ways more similar to ancestral non-human apes—are less often referred to as "human" than hominins of the genus Homo.[5] Several of these hominins used fire, occupied much of Eurasia, and gave rise to anatomically modern Homo sapiens in Africa about 315,000[6] years ago.[7][8] They began to exhibit evidence of behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago.

Is this Fundamental Phenomenon of the Universe an Illusion? - The Daily Galaxy

In January 2010, Erik Verlinde, professor of Theoretical Physics and world-renowned string theorist, caused a worldwide stir with the publication of On the Origin of Gravity and the Laws of Newton, in which he challenged commonly held perceptions on gravity, going so far as to state ‘for me gravity doesn’t exist’. If he is proved correct, the consequences for our understanding of the universe and its origins in a Big Bang will be far-reaching.

Verlinde, who received the Spinoza prize (the Dutch Nobel Prize) from the Netherlands Organisation for Science, is famous for developing this new theory, or idea, on gravity in which he says that gravity is an illusion. "Gravity is not an illusion in the sense that we know that things fall," says Verline. " Most people, certainly in physics, think we can describe gravity perfectly adequately using Einstein’s General Relativity. "We have other phenomena in Physics like this," Verlinde continued.
