A huge cosmic catastrophe has been averted!
A massive rogue dead star was initially predicted to brush through our solar system roughly 29,000 years from now.
Fortunately, updated calculations show that our planet will be spared from the damage wrought by this runaway star.
In 2022, researchers utilized data from the Gaia space telescope to project the trajectory of WD 0810-353, a rogue. A white dwarf is the hot and dense remnant left behind when a Sun-like star reaches the end of its life cycle.
Recent investigations have uncovered a surprising twist: it appears that this white dwarf may not be approaching our solar system at all.
