    A group of astronomers from the US, Europe, Chile and South Africa have determined that 70,000 years ago a recently discovered dim star is likely to have passed through the solar system's distant cloud of comets, the Oort Cloud. No other star is known to have ever approached our solar system this close - five times closer than the current closest star, Proxima Centauri. In a paper published in Astrophysical Journal Letters, lead author Eric Mamajek from the University of Rochester and his collaborators analyzed the velocity and trajectory of a low-mass star system nicknamed "Scholz's star." The star's trajectory...
  • Star Blasted Through Solar System 70,000 Years Ago

    02/18/2015 1:11:46 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 113 replies ^ | Ian O'Neill
    Highlighted by astronomers at the University of Rochester and the European Southern Observatory, the star — nicknamed “Scholz’s star” — has a very low tangential velocity in the sky, but it has been clocked traveling at a breakneck speed away from us. In other words, from our perspective, Scholz’s star is fleeing the scene of a collision with us. “Most stars this nearby show much larger tangential motion,” said Eric Mamajek, of the University of Rochester. “The small tangential motion and proximity initially indicated that the star was most likely either moving towards a future close encounter with the solar...
  • A star disturbed the comets of the solar system 70,000 years ago

    Scholz's star -- named after the German astronomer who discovered it -- approached less than a light-year from the Sun. Nowadays it is almost 20 light-years away, but 70,000 years ago it entered the Oort cloud, a reservoir of trans-Neptunian objects located at the confines of the solar system. ... Now two astronomers from the Complutense University of Madrid, the brothers Carlos and Raúl de la Fuente Marcos, together with the researcher Sverre J. Aarseth of the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom), have analyzed for the first time the nearly 340 objects of the solar system with hyperbolic orbits (very...

    A British woman fighting with a Kurdish armed unit has died in Syria, her father has said. Anna Campbell, 26, from Lewes, East Sussex, died on March 15 in Afrin while with the Kurdish Women's Protection Units, the YPJ. It is feared she was killed by Turkish airstrikes. Ms Campbell - who had dyed her fair hair black so she would not stand out - is the first British woman to have been killed in Syria with the Kurds and the first Briton to be killed in the battle for Afrin. Seven other Britons have died in the country while...

    Eight Security Council nations say it's "imperative" that the U.N. body "immediately pursue decisive action" to achieve a cease-fire in Syria if U.N. member states, especially Russia and its ally Syria, don't implement a resolution demanding a cessation of hostilities. A letter sent to all 15 council members on Monday expresses "profound concern" about the lack of implementation of the Feb. 24 resolution demanding a cease-fire throughout Syria without delay to deliver humanitarian aid and evacuate the critically ill and wounded. It singles out Russia and Syria as key to implementation. The letter was signed by France, Kuwait, Peru, Poland,...

    All the authorities can do is ban anyone who wants to speak about this. The British police are a disgrace. Reportedly close to a million non-Muslim girls have been gang raped and trafficked in the UK. The authorities did not pursue these crimes for years, for fear of being accused of islamophobia and racism (Islam is not a race). And still the child rape rages on. Politicians can keep turning a blind eye, law enforcement ignore it, so this pox on our communities continues get worse. It’s because rape jihad is sanctioned under Islam. Sex slavery is sanctioned under Islam....

    US President Donald Trump “will not succeed” in dividing European nations against one another over trade, German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier warned on Sunday ahead of a visit to Washington. In the European Union “we are a customs union and act collectively. It cannot be in the interest of the US government to divide Europe, nor will it succeed,” Altmaier told German business daily Handelsblatt. […] “Companies and consumers on both sides would foot the bill if the US and Europe tumble into a trade war,” Altmaier said. Meanwhile, countries like China that stand accused of flooding global markets with...

    President Donald Trump sent a clear message to European allies and senior administration officials Tuesday when he fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson:  the President remains steadfast on implementing his strategy to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, even if it means dismantling the 2015 Iran nuclear deal established by President Obama, sources told this reporter.Trump, who ‘begrudgingly’ recertified the Iran deal January, will not re-certify in May if Germany, France or Great Britain back down from the conditions the administration set in place at the beginning of the year to hold Tehran accountable for its nuclear program, a White House official...
  • EU proposes visa restrictions on countries refusing to take back illegal migrants

    The European Commission (EC) on Wednesday announced plans to penalize citizens from countries that refuse to take back illegal migrants by restricting visas. Under new rules proposed by the EC, countries that fail to cooperate on illegal migrant returns could face a restrictive visa policy. The restrictions may include longer visa processing times, higher costs, fewer exemptions given to visiting diplomats or greater restrictions on the length of time they can stay in the EU. "The new rules will provide for a regular assessment by the Commission of non-EU countries' cooperation on return," the Commission said. EU countries have had...

Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey, one of the first officers to respond to the scene, also fell ill and was hospitalized after being exposed to the nerve agent. Furthermore, hundreds of local residents in the small Southern English town who came into contact with the...

    Rejected asylum seekers and other foreign citizens facing deportation due to criminality at the controversial Kærshovedgård expulsion center failed to meet registration requirements on thousands of occasions, according to a report. Residents at the Jutland center are not incarcerated, but are required to live at the center and register with authorities there up to seven times weekly. But registrations have been missed 10,057 times since the center was opened in 2016, Central and West Jutland Police have confirmed, according to a report by newspaper Jyllands-Posten. Some have absconded completely, while others have absented themselves for long or short periods before...

    Despite a death rate higher than its birth rate, Germany managed to grow by two million people in two years due to high levels of immigration, statistics released on Tuesday showed. While no conclusive number have been released for net migration last year, the federal statistics agency Destatis estimated on Tuesday that it stood at around 450,000 more arrivals than departures from the country. Immigration outstripped emigration by 1.15 million in 2015, slowing slightly to 500,000 in 2016. That accounted for a rise in the total population by around 2 million inhabitants in a three-year period. By the end of...

    German firms must begin planning for a worst-case “hard Brexit” that would slash trade between Britain and the EU if no deal is reached at an EU summit next week, a powerful industry body said on Tuesday. The Federation of German Industry (BDI) urged British Prime Minister Theresa May and the remaining 27 EU leaders to agree a “status quo” transition period preserving present trade arrangements beyond Britain’s departure date of March 29th 2019. “Otherwise, some companies will be forced to bring their contingency plans into focus for the worst-case scenario, which no one wants, and which will damage everyone,”...
