PLANET-DISSOLVING DUST CLOUD IS HEADED TOWARD EARTH!
Monday September 12, 2005



By MIKE FOSTER

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Scared-stiff astronomers have detected a mysterious mass they've dubbed a "chaos cloud" that dissolves everything in its path, including comets, asteroids, planets and entire stars -- and it's headed directly toward Earth!

Discovered April 6 by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, the swirling, 10 million-mile- wide cosmic dust cloud has been likened to an "acid nebula" and is hurtling toward us at close to the speed of light -- making its estimated time of arrival 9:15 a.m. EDT on June 1, 2014.

"The good news is that this finding confirms several cutting- edge ideas in theoretical physics," announced Dr. Albert Sherwinski, a Cambridge based astrophysicist with close ties to NASA.

"The bad news is that the total annihilation of our solar system is imminent."

Experts believe the chaos cloud is composed of particles spawned near the event horizon of a black hole (a form of what's called Hawking Radiation) that have been distorted by mangled information spewed from the hole.

"A super-massive black hole lies about 28,000 light-years from Earth at the center of our galaxy," explained Dr. Sherwinski.

"Last year the eminent physicist Stephen Hawking revised his theory of black holes -- which previously held that nothing could escape the hole's powerful gravitational field. He demonstrated that information about objects that have been sucked in can be emitted in mangled form.

"It now appears that mangled information can distort matter.

"Just imagine our galaxy the Milky Way as a beautiful, handwritten letter.

"Now imagine pouring a glass of water on the paper and watching the words dissolve as the stain spreads. That's what the chaos cloud does to every star or planet it encounters."

To avoid widespread panic, NASA has declined to make the alarming discovery public. But Dr. Sherwinski's contacts at the agency's Chandra X-ray Observatory leaked to him striking images of the newly discovered chaos cloud obliterating a large asteroid.

"It's like watching a helpless hog being dissolved in a vat of acid," one NASA scientist told Dr. Sherwinski.

Ordinarily, Hawkings Radiation is harmless.

"It's produced when an electron- positron pair are at the event horizon of a black hole," Dr. Sherwinski explained. "The intense curvature of space-time of the hole can cause the positron to fall in, while the electron escapes."

But when "infected" by mangled information from the black hole, the particles become a chaos cloud, which in turn mangles everything it touches.

"If it continues unchecked, the chaos cloud will eventually reduce our galaxy to the state of absolute chaos that existed before the birth of the universe," the astrophysicist warned.

Some scientists say mankind's best hope would be to build a "space ark" and hightail it to the Andromeda Galaxy, 2.1 million light-years away.

"We wouldn't be able to save the entire human population, but perhaps the best and the brightest," observed British rocket scientist Dr. David Hall, when asked about the feasibility of such a project.

But even if such a craft could be built in time, evacuating Earth might prove fruitless if theories about the origin of the chaos cloud are correct.

"A black hole at the center of Andromeda is about 15 times the size of the one in our own galaxy," Dr. Sherwinski noted. "It might be like jumping out of the frying pan into the fire."

Speaking under the condition of anonymity, a senior White House official said the president's top science advisors are taking the findings in stride.

"This is a lot like global warming, where the jury is still out on whether it's real or not," said the official.

"The existence of this so called chaos cloud is only a theory. Americans shouldn't panic until all the facts are in."

I honestly haven't really thought about this. I doubt it'll happen......but you never know.

*Insert chaoctic screams here.*

Oh wait, I'm religious, that makes me realize that we aren't going to die because of merely a black cloud of radiation.

Honestly, that isn't my only reason. You see, That is logically impossible. A black hole is inescapable. What Hawkings said is like saying that people could escape gravity.

Also, they can't even calculate astoids, they thought one would hit us in a couple of years, then twice they changed their opinion, and now they think it won't.

They couldn't perdict something that far in the future, espicially the time in which it would hit.

Finally, if NASA wanted to keep something secret, they would succeed. And of course, paper can survive water. I once had a soaked book, now it's fine.

Overall, this is all a cheap excuse for an article, and until it is released to the public, I say we should ignore it.

EDIT: After rereading it, I see it's scientific innaccurracy humorous.

It is a complete hoax, it was first posted on a world news.com site that specializes in fake news stories. The idea is certainly plausable, but it's not happening now.

Somehow I doubt it. The solar system has survived for almost five billion years, somehow I don't think it'll be destroyed in our lifetimes. (Unless maybe we live a really really really really really really really really really really really really really long time...)

Then again, if the Earth will be destroyed in 2014, why the hell am I in college working my butt off?

*runs around in circles screaming like a lunitic*

The world is going to be destroyed... .everyone run for you live's....XD

I think that it is probobly possible but i doubt that it will happen this soon... like vulkar said NASA cant even tell if a astroids are going to hit or not....

But I have to admit it would be pretty damn cool to see the cloud thingy eat a sun....

Hmn, so we have 9 years eh? Enough wasting time then!

*grabs boyfriend and starts the plans for wedding/family crap*

Hehheh... he'll kill me if he reads that (love you sweetie, heh heh )

I think it's a hoax as well... I mean, Stephen Hawking revising his theory would be HUGE news, but there has been no mention of such a thing.

The notion of a chaos cloud is cool though.

*looks around again*

So.... we're NOT gonna die?

Well that's depressing.

Seriously though. The theory of a chaos cloud is laughable at best and grounds for institutionalization at worst. It is pretty damn funny though. lol.

I knew that it was a hoax when they said "Space Ark", high tail it, and the one guys name was David Hall... It is certainly plausible that something could do this, but if it was doing this, all of space would be dead (if you believe that we are not restricted to one plane of movment in space, then it would just travel flat O_o)

Yeah, if anyone actaully believed that, it would have been all over national news, local news, newspapers, magazines, and we would have already been building something that could proppel us into space and get us the hell out of here.

I buy Weekly World News Magazine, and this is an article in it. It's not true. God, I feel bad for anyone who believes it. The magazine is one of those hilarious stories that don't actually happen. >.< God, calm down everybody.

Well actually, I'd have to say that the theory is possible. If a giant nebula suddenly decided to pay a nice little visit to out world, it could block out the sun, and we die to to the lack of light and heat.

Of course, we could always escape to another galaxy in that situation, instead of going to Alpha Centauri.

You're all going to die, but it isn't that thing that's going to kil you.

Lol seriously, I laughed my ass off, and that's a lot of laughing.
