Thanks for resending that e-mail. Actually, I did see those questions on
Elaine's forum and happened to be working on obtaining those answers for him
as provided below.
Q&A FROM : WHIZADREE
From the information from SENTINAL we roughly know where planet X should be
and from Amature Astronomers have supposed to of captured snapshots of X on
Q. Now can someone work out where planet X is on its orbits path ?
A. ACCORDING TO INFORMATION POSTED AT WWW.ZETATALK.COM, ON DECEMBER
2002 PX WILL HAVE TRAVELLED APPROX. 3/4 OF THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE SUN'S
DEAD TWIN (sometimes referred to as Nemesis) AND THE SUN, AS ILLUSTRATED IN
THESE GRAPHICS. NOW THAT IT'S APPARENTLY VISIBLE WITH AMATEUR EQUIPMENT,  WE
SHOULD SOON BE ABLE TO TRIANGULATE AND CALCULATE IT'S ACTUAL DISTANCE AND
(See attached file: PX Distances.gif)(See attached file: PX_dist2.gif)
Q. Can Someone Tell US how far that is to the SUN give or take a few 1000
Miles for the moment or to the Nearest AU...?
A. PX IS REPORTED TO CURRENTLY BE APPROX. 19.5, BILLION MILES FROM THE SUN
OR ROUGHLY 208 AUs AS OF 11/07/02, HOWEVER THIS HAS NOT YET BEEN CONFIRMED,
(at least not publically).
Q. Can Someone Tell US How Far away is X from Earth?
A. YES. IF IT HAS BEEN SIGHTED AND LOCATED BY TELESCOPE ASTRONOMERS CAN
CALCULATE IT'S EXACT DISTANCE (and subsequently speed) BY MEASURING THE
PERCEIVED DISPLACEMENT OF IT'S PATH [
pathx.htm ] AS CREATED BY THE EARTH'S 2 AU
BASE-LINE HORIZONTAL DISPLACEMENT AS IT ORBIT'S THE SUN.
Q. Can someone work out what speed X would have to travel at, to Reach Us
by the Scheduled spring next year (2003)?
A. PX'S SPEED IS NOT CONSTANT SO IT'S TRICKY FOR AMATEURS TO CALCULATE
IT'S VELOCITY IN REAL-TIME. HOWEVER, IT SHOULD NOW BE CLOSE TO REACHING
IT'S PERIOD OF FULL ACCELERATION TOWARDS OUR SUN, WHICH SHOULD CONTINUE UP
UNTIL NEXT MARCH AT WHICH TIME IT WILL DECELERATE SOMEWHAT DUE TO THE
OPPOSING INFLUENCES OF THE SUN, SATURN AND JUPITER. FROM NOV. 2002 UNTIL
FEB 2003 IT'S AVERAGE SPEED HAS BEEN PROJECTED TO BE APPROXIMATELY
General Information Required
Q. What speed does the earth travel at not spin but to travel across its
A. THE EARTH'S MEAN ORBITAL VELOCITY IS APPROX. 1,598,400 miles/day. SO
PX IS CURRENTLY TRAVELING APPROX. 53 TIMES GREATER THAN THE SPEED OF EARTH.
Q. If you was looking north and that is 0 Degrees and directly behind you
was 180 Degrees currently at what degree does the Sun rise and sun set
A. IN ASTONOMY NORTH IS +90 DEGREES AND THE EQUATOR IS ZERO. DUE TO THE
TILT OF THE EARTH THE DEGREE AT WHICH THE SUN RISES AND SETS EACH DAY IS
DEPENDANT UPON BOTH THE DATE AND LATITUDE FROM WHICH YOU ARE OBSERVING
THESE EVENTS. FOR INSTANCE, FOR THOSE LOCATED AT 90 DEGREES N. THERE WILL
BE NEITHER A SUNRISE OR SUNSET TODAY. THE SAME GOES FOR THOSE AT - 90
DEGREES. THERE ARE CHARTS AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET THAT WILL ASSIST YOU
IN DETERMINING THIS INFORMATION, BASED UPON YOUR LOCATION.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT MOST OF THE INFORMATION CONCERNING PX REMAINS
UNVERIFIED BY SOURCES WHICH ARE RELIABLE AND PUBLICLY AVAILABLE. GOV'T
SOURCES HAVE REPEATEDLY BEEN CAUGHT LYING, SPREADING DISINFORMATION AND
COVERING UP AND AS SUCH HAVE PROVEN THEMSELVES TO BE EVEN LESS TRUSTWORTHY
THAN THOSE WHOM THEY SEEK TO DEBUNK. WITHIN THE NEXT 3 MONTHS AMATEURS
SHOULD BE ABLE TO VERIFY IF PX IS GOING TO POSE A REAL THREAT OR NOT.
HOWEVER, IF THE INFORMATION WE CURRENTLY HAVE PROVES TO BE ACCURATE, WE
WILL NOT BE LEFT WITH MUCH TIME TO PREPARE FOR THE PX PASSOVER. LET'S ALL
HOPE IT PROVES TO BE A HOAX. - SENTINEL
Can anyone help out with these questions
MORE QUESTIONS AND CHALLENGES
Although fun to image, PX cannot exist as described for the following reasons:
1. Based on the current timeline PX would not have to be traveling at 2% of the speed of light. Since gravity is the accelerator, and since gravity is a function of mass, and since the sun does not have enough mass to produce this speed of acceleration on something as big as Jupiter, then PX would have to have the missing mass to generate enough gravitation attraction to generate acceleration to 2% of 'c'.
Now here's the rub.
a) If PX were that massive, it would tug all of the planets out of their nice mostly circular orbits into stretched elliptic orbits.
b) The solar system would not have survived PX's first pass into the inner solar system, since by virtue of its mass being greater than the sun, it would have pulled away all the planets.
c) Nemesis, in order to have enough mass to keep PX in its alleged orbit would have to have a gravitation influence all the way to the sun
(SOL). This means it should pull all of the planets into orbits that are much more elliptic than they are. If it does not have this influence, then PX flies in the first time and shoots back to where nemesis was, only nemesis is not there anymore, and it just keeps on going into the greater universe (Based on the alleged acceleration it has picked up from the sun (sol).
Lets use Jupiter as the model. Jupiter is much closer to the sun than PX. Based on the acceleration model used for PX (which is supposed to be more massive than earth but less than Jupiter) Jupiter would make a complete orbit of the sun in 4.66 days instead of the 4332 days it takes now moving at 13,060 meters per second.
