Humans have been seeing only one sun in the sky for centuries, but a new study claimed that the sun was not alone. He also had a twin brother. Astronomers at the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard say that at the time of the formation of our solar system there was one more sun that moved and moved elsewhere.
Many things in the solar system today are very bizarre and they are not yet understood properly. In this, the mention of the Ort cloud and the famous ninth planet can be specifically mentioned.
Astronomers say that these strange things in the solar system are related to the wandering sun somewhere. Astronomers are well aware that the presence of many starry solar systems is common in our universe. Right in our neighborhood is the Centauri Solar System.
There are three stars in this solar system. Avi Lob and Aamir Siraj have said in their new paper that the missing brother of Suraj can shed light on the strange happenings in our outer solar system.
In particular, we can find out why the Oort cloud is so heavy. The Oort Cloud is located at the outer edge of our solar system. This place is ahead of Neptune and Pluto.
It surpasses even the farthest Kiper Belt objects. The belt is shaped like a ring on many, while the Oort cloud is a spherical region of space, filled with icy bodies, made up of early basic materials. They also include comets, which never enter the interior of the solar system.
So far no model of the formation of the solar system has been able to explain the volume of the Oort cloud, but if we include the other sun in this picture, then things start to make sense.
In the new study, astronomers have speculated that another star was also born with our sun from a molecular cloud. A molecular cloud is also called star nursery. It is a special category of interstellar clouds, whose density and size facilitate the origin of molecules. Among them, molecular hydrogen is the highest.
Astronomers say that the two suns were held in a gravitational bond with each other after birth. If the mass of the second sun in our solar system was the same as our sun, it would have helped spread the Oort cloud. According to astronomers, it is normal for stars to wander after being born from the molecular cloud.
Due to the gravitational interaction with other stars in their nursery, these stars start to wander. Therefore, after collecting billions of years of Ort cloud, the extra star of our solar system went away and became a sun-like star in some corner of the galaxy. It is believed that the ninth planet's kink can also be solved by the missing sun.
