Pulsars make a GPS for the cosmos
CSIRO scientists have written software that could guide spacecraft to Alpha Centauri, show that the planet Nibiru doesn’t exist … and prove that the Earth goes around the Sun.
The new version of the software lets the astronomers rule out unseen masses, including any supposedly undiscovered planets, such as the notorious Nibiru.
"Even if a planet is hard to see, there's no way to disguise its gravitational pull," Dr Hobbs said. "If we don’t detect the gravitational pull, then there’s no planet there. Full stop."
And what about showing that the Earth goes around the Sun? Yes, they can do that too.
"This was nailed a couple of hundred years ago," said Dr Hobbs. "But if you still need proof, we've got it."
