i agree with half of your post light does exsists as both wave and particle and the acts of observation callopses the wave function ..
I dont think its prudent to apply quantum mechanics to such vast distances as they are not married correctly..........................yet.....
Quantum mechanics is the very small and 21,000 light years is the very big .
to your final point 'nothing can travel faster than the speed of light'....
this is because light is a constant ? right?
last year scientists slowed down the speed of light officially!
during quantum observations linked particles that are seperated by distances show instant responses to change in spin ... you turn a particle one way and the other instantly reacts ..
so these particles ARE linked via a form of information travelling Faster than the speed of light. .. Thus something is breaking the light barrier .. thus something 'CAN' travel faster than the speed of light.
just a few ideas

There is no way in the world that this could even possibly be the infamous Planet X/Niribu. Why ? You obviously haven't taken notice to one big detail, the distance. I mean god 21,000 lightyears is a LONG LONG way away.

Why is it that something new discovered in space always turns into a thread about Nibiru? This is one thing majorly wrong with ATS, the twisting of information
And Ahabster is right......3 times the speed of light is impossible because nothing moves faster than light
If any of you PX'ers think your smart enough to disprove Einstein and all the other great scientists and astronomers out there, please do so
Sorry, but big thumbs down for this thread

Since Earth is about 8+ light Minutes from the sun, and this pulsar at 20000+ light Years - the picture is not exactly correct. I bet that the guys who placed the picture in the article understood even less then me in astronomy. And it is hard.
Edit - wrong word.

The three suns would circle the planet and every 1000 years the stars would line up creating a Great Conjunction. The alignment would herald a great destruction or a new beginning. Sounds like the 2012 scenerio.
