“70,000 years ago, space got a little crowded: a low-mass binary star system passed by our solar system at the narrow distance of 0.82 light-years. This is near enough for the system — known as Scholz’s star — to have actually clipped the outer edge of the Oort cloud.”
God made this all awesome too
Based off of what you said and I am NOT a science scholar I would like to know this event would it be affected by solar flares or just a simple interjection interference with another item that is flowing in space?
P Heinz I think not. It’s closest approach was estimated at about 0.8 light years. In contrast, Pluto is 5.5 light hours from the Sun and the Earth is 8 light minutes from the Sun. So the affect on the solar system would be pretty minimal since it never got that close
Please in English for those that don’t understand the dialect
Life is full of danger. Known and unknown. Now I know there is an Oort cloud which can be damaged by a binary star syhstem Thanks for the education Chris Dolan
