Our Sun Could Have Been Born With An Evil Twin Called ” Nemesis”

A new model on how stars are formed has added weight to the hypothesis that most – if not all – stars are born in a litter with at least one sibling. Our own star at the centre of the Solar System is probably no exception, and some astronomers suspect that the Sun’s estranged twin might be the evil one, blaming it for the death of the dinosaurs.

After analysing data from a radio survey conducted on a dust cloud in the Perseus constellation, two researchers from UC Berkeley and the Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory have concluded all Sun-like stars are probably born with a companion.
