New Program May Mean That NASA Openly Needs Help Finding Planet Nibiru

Well, it depends on who you ask exactly what it means. It has never been disputed by conspiracy theorists or NASA that there is a ninth planet (Pluto, if you remember, was demoted leaving us with only eight planets once again). They just disagree on what it is called, where it might be found, and what it means for Earth and the solar system. Now, NASA is openly calling for everyday average civilians to assist it with going through thousands upon thousands of space images in the search for the mysterious ninth planet.

The program, called “Backyard Worlds: Planet 9”, is pretty simple. Despite tons of cash and manpower, the amount of images that NASA has to sift through in the search for the ninth planet is so great that they still can’t do it. They need help, and they need lots of it. So they are basically outsourcing it to the common man. Of course, they aren’t offering pay for this service, only the novelty of being part of the project and that really, really small chance that you discover the ninth planet from your bedroom. It doesn’t require any real scientific knowledge or experience. Volunteers simply review the images and mark anything that they deem to be out of the ordinary so that real astronomers from NASA can narrow down what they need to look at. It goes without saying that there will be a wide margin of error here, but when you’re dealing with things in astronomical terms, anything to narrow it down at all is better than nothing.

For conspiracy theorists, this is viewed as NASA coming clean. See, the legend of Planet Nibiru has been around for quite a while. As the story goes, Nibiru is the ninth planet, but it isn’t orbiting the sun from a freakishly long distance beyond even Pluto. It’s actually barreling straight for the Earth and has been for a very long time. When it collides with the Earth (inevitably, according to the theory), it will be the sort of cataclysm that ended the dinosaurs, only this time it will be humanity. NASA has long denied that this is a thing, and they still do. They have even recognized the theory with informational videos explaining just why it wouldn’t make any sense whatsoever to believe that a huge planet is hurtling toward the Earth at breakneck speeds because, for one thing, of the gravitational consequences of that. Basically, if Nibiru was where conspiracy theorists say it is, then everything as we know it would be different. Of course, conspiracy theorists debate that with their own facts and figures and gravitational calculations. In any case, many are taking this as NASA coming clean about Nibiru, although it doesn’t really seem that way from where we are standing. Some are insinuating that Nibiru is getting dangerously close, so NASA is reaching out for help before it’s too late. Others say that NASA wants a civilian to discover Nibiru so that they can cover up the covering up all these years. A backyard hero would make many believe that they really just didn’t know about it all this time. These are only a couple of conspiracy theories about NASA’s surprising announcement.

For what it’s worth, this is not the only instance of NASA and other organizations reaching out for the public’s help. The Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence program (SETI) has used the processing power of civilian computers for many years now. When you are not using your computer, you can arrange to have SETI use it to scan for radio signals and other such data in the cosmos. To date, nothing has come from either program. What do you think? Is NASA asking for help because they really can’t find Nibiru? Is the ninth planet just another thing to teach the kids in their textbooks, or is a major space catastrophe just around the corner? We want to hear your opinions in the comments below.

2016 WF9, the Doomsday Asteroid, is Coming in February 2017 to Destroy the World — Worried?

It’s a story that is repeated yearly.  Remember comet Elinen and what a big story that was in the conspiracy world.  There’s a new one every time you turn around, and 2016 WF9 is the first one of 2017.  According to conspiracy theorists, this asteroid, which is supposedly a chunk of Nibiru, the mysterious planet that some say is encroaching on the solar system, will smash into the Earth, causing a doomsday scenario with mega tsunamis quite possibly leaving no one left standing.  Predictably, NASA says it’s no big deal and no one should be worried.  Below are some videos from people out there pushing that this is it.  Should we even bother filing our taxes this year with the end just around the corner?  Let us know what you think.  Are you worried about 2016 WF9?

Mysterious Blue Spheres Caught in NASA Images of Sun

Conspiracy theorists are going nuts after some public images from NASA satellites showed some mysterious blue spheres in the area of the sun. There is all sorts of speculation going on as we speak, including everything from UFO’s to apocalyptic predictions. NASA is saying that this is all a silly coincidence. According to scientists there, it is quite common for cameras on their satellites to become “overloaded” causing images to be corrupted. When that happens, something like the blue spheres can show up on an image, causing a whole lot of speculation over nothing. Of course, many in conspiracy circles aren’t having none of that hokey explanation.

What do you think of the blue spheres? Do you buy NASA’s explanation, or are they covering up for something?

French Astronaut Delivers Eerie Warning From Space During Suicide Attempt

Claudia Haignere is the nation of France’s first female astronaut. In 2008, almost exactly ten years ago, she was in space when she apparently lost her mind. Blamed officially on an overdose of sleeping pills, her suicide attempt-turned-tyrade included an eerie message… Earth must be warned!

This is one of those stories that not a lot of people have heard about, but it’s absolutely true and right there to discover for those that know what to look for. That’s why we at Common Sense Conspiracy felt like the tenth anniversary of this interesting episode was a good time to put it in front of our loyal readers. Check out the video below that outlines the entire event in excellent detail.

Strawberry Moon on Summer Solstice? Recipe for Disaster or Uncanny Coincidence?

The summer solstice isn’t unusual at all. It happens regularly. A strawberry moon is a very rare indeed, even rarer than the “blue moon” in the saying. Both of them falling on the same day is priceless, and extremely rare. So, it’s no surprise that there are some people in conspiracy circles pointing to this as something to be afraid of. There are references to Israel becoming a nation again in 1948 and the like. There is also the even more rare Cherry Moon made famous by Prince, who was apparently murdered by the Illuminati.

The reality: Common Sense Conspiracy loves a good conspiracy theory as much as anyone, but there’s nothing to the strawberry moon on the summer solstice. The reality is that this is a cosmic coincidence. But here’s some great videos showing what other people think. If we’re wrong, I guess we’ll see you in the afterlife.

Did Scientists Verify the Existence of Nibiru With Acknowledgement of Planet X?

The concept that there might be another quite gigantic planet past Pluto in our solar system is nothing new.  Ever since Pluto was found, the search has been on in the astronomy community for the mystical Planet X.  The unusual orbit of Neptune and Uranus was pointed to as classic evidence of another gravitational force out there in the far reaches of the solar system, but until this past week, it was only conjecture.  Now, scientists have confirmed that the calculations are in and Planet X is real.  And when Planet X is finally discovered, there won’t be any Pluto planet debates on this one.  Planet X, according to the calculations, will be massive, perhaps even rivaling Jupiter for the title of largest planet.

Astronomers aren’t the only ones to warn of the existence of the ninth planet (Pluto got ousted, remember?).  The legend of the dark planet Nibiru on a collision course with Earth from the far reaches of the solar system is a recurring conspiracy theory that won’t quit.  As a matter of fact, we have seen serious talk about Nibiru on several different occasions over the last decade, each instance turning out to be nonsense.  But now, it’s time for the Nibiru talk to heat up again as it seems almost like scientists are confirming that Nibiru exists after all.

Bear in mind that the undiscovered Planet X and Nibiru have some major differences.  Planet X is definitely not getting any closer to Earth or the sun, and there is no reason to think that it would be likely that i could harbor life at that distance.  But it is still interesting, and you can bet there will be plenty of people talking about it as the search is on.

Halloween Asteroid TB145 to Pass Very Close to Earth — Doomsday or Another Close Shave?

Meet asteroid TB145, another large one that is going to cruise uncomfortably close to the Earth in a few days, sparking many in conspiracy circles to panic and say that this could be some sort of world-ending, catastrophic scenario. Here’s the reality. TB145 is the size of the Empire State Building, which sounds really menacing when you put it that way, but in astronomical terms is a speck of sand (not that, even). However, as we all know from Hollywood, it doesn’t take that much of an asteroid to make a really “deep impact” on Earth, so the concerns are legitimate. NASA says that TB145 will come within 300,000 miles of the Earth, meaning that even if you have a couple of thousand miles error, Earth should be safe and sound when the trick-or-treating ends. The video below shows more details. As always, the only real troubling thing here is that the asteroid was discovered so late in the game, indicating that if it were on a collision course with Earth, we would have had mere days to prepare, if there was, in fact, anything to be done.
