Earth under attack from Death Star

(THE SUN) — AN invisible star may be circling the Sun and causing deadly comets to bombard the Earth, scientists said yesterday.

The brown dwarf – up to five times the size of Jupiter – could be to blame for mass extinctions that occur here every 26 million years.

The star – nicknamed Nemesis by NASA scientists – would be invisible as it only emits infrared light and is incredibly distant.

Now NASA boffins believe they will be able to find Nemesis using a new heat-seeking telescope that began scanning the skies in January.
