Today on Far Future Horizons join the hunt in search of the Sun’s evil twin – Nemesis. The second instalment of the sixth season of the acclaimed documentary series The Universe explores the possibility that an unseen companion orbits the Sun.
Could there be a monstrous, undiscovered star orbiting our own Sun beyond the Kuiper belt? Could it be scattering killer comets throughout our Solar System like clockwork every 26 million years?
New scientific surveys are probing the edges of our Solar System, a realm populated by giant worlds and giant icy planetoids in the hunt for Nemesis, the Sun's purported evil twin.
We may be on the verge of discovering this ultimate death star which has been implicated in causing every mass extinction in Earth's history.
