Light travels at 9,500,000,000,000 kilometers per year (light year)
So the binary system in question is 21,000 light years away
9,500,000,000,000 X 21,000 = 199,500,000,000,000,000 kilometers away

Hey man, the centre of the galaxy is 26000 light years awy, thats a massive massive distance, and between here and 26000 light years away are billions of stars. This thing is not close at all, it is so far away as to be insignificant. 2012 my arse, travelling at the speed of light it would still take 21000 years to get here wouldnt it, and nothing is travelling at that speed. The nearest star is 4.22 light years away, not 4.22 thousand, just 4.22 light years, so who gives a # about a star 21000 light years away?
The pulsar, a city-sized superdense stellar corpse left over after a massive star exploded as a supernova, is spinning on its axis 465 times every second. Nearly 21,000 light-years from Earth.
Orbital Comparison With the Solar System: This diagram shows a comparison of the sizes and strangely elliptical shapes of the orbits of the pulsar J1903+0327 and its possible Sun-like companion star with the orbit of the Earth around the Sun. The sizes of the Sun and the possible companion star have been exaggerated by a factor of about 10, while that of the Earth has been exaggerated by a factor of about 1000. The pulsar, with its magnetic field and beams of radiation, is too large by a factor of about 100,000. (Credit: Bill Saxton, NRAO/AUI/NSF)

Suprised more people havn't posted .. here we have scientific proof of a very close 3 star system with ELIPTICAL orbits!!! Nibiru anyone?
Yes yes people jeez calm down I DID NOT even mention Nibiru in the Original post i mentioned the possibilty in a later post of mine and everyone is jumping on it going mental.
This is Skunk works Boys and girls.. it is meant to include speculative theories which nibiru certainly is ...
You see in some small way it lends credence to the possibilty of our sun having another orbiting body on an eliptical course .. does it not? maybe their is a MASSIVE object orbiting our sun at the outer edges of our solar system that could have an eliptical orbit ...
Up until this article eliptical orbits were laughed at when people spoke about planet x / nibiru etc etc .. but in Many many ways this new scientific info ADDS credence to the planet x / niburi theory. yet most are taking it as the opposite.
Agent venom is correct .. its all RELATIVE.
You mentioned Planet X in your first post, which is the other name given to this mythical planet. Also the thread name: "Could this cause the end in 2012". What do most Planet X/Nibiru proponents say will cause catastrophism in 2012? Planet X/Nibiru.
How does it when other objects out there display similar characteristics? Alot of star systems are binary but so far there is no evidence to suggest we live in one. Again, it is speculation.
Again, how does it? This is totally different to how PXers/Nibiru propents talk of this object, for one it's "supposed" to be a brown dwarf star. Nibiru is said to have a huge elliptical orbit of 3600 years.
Nibiru is nothing but a myth, perpetrated by people like Zecharia Sitchin and peddled out there by loonies such as Nancy Lieder, Mark Hazelwood and Marshall Masters.
