Looming apocalypse! Over 20 ‘death stars’ with potential to wipe out life on Earth are coming

Looming apocalypse! Over 20 ‘death stars’ with potential to wipe out life on Earth are coming

- Over 20 death stars are on their way towards planet Earth

- Scientists say these death stars will come close enough to put an end to life

- One particular star called Gliese 710 is said to be much closer than the rest

Life on Earth as you know it could be in serious jeopardy. Scientists claim some 20 plus death stars with potential to finish planet Earth are coming.

The life-threatening stars, the scientist say, will get close enough to deflect comets from their original paths and redirect them towards Earth, thus putting our lives at serious risk.

“One specific star called Gliese 710 has caught the attention of the scientists,” states a new study that delved into how often stars strayed into the Oort Cloud, a spherical shell of billions of icy objects that exist in the outer reaches of the solar system.

The scientists predict that in the next million years, Gliese 710 and several other death stars will pass within 2.3 trillion kilometers from Earth or if you like within the Oort Cloud.

“Definitely anything coming within that distance should concern us,” says Coryn Bailer-Jones from Max Planck Institute in Heidelberg, who is also author of the new paper.

According to Bailer-Jones, the death star’s strong gravitational force could cause a shower of comets targeting our planet Earth.

As stated, the said death stars will enter within the Oort Cloud in the next million years, so there is no cause for alarm.
