Ok, so let me explain this one a bit. I am the Director of Photography for a film group here in Columbus. We shot a feature length film a year ago
called Singularity 2012 for submission to Sundance (the editing isn't complete yet). Our solar system moves in a SIN curve like pattern around the
edge of the galaxy. As many of you know if you look at our galaxy from the side, there is a thin, black band that we know as the "dark rift" which
is a collection of dust particles and other random cosmic objects. Around 2012, our solar system is scheduled to pass through the dark rift.
In our film, a cosmic dust cloud is discovered approaching our galaxy. The film takes place over the course of a year, people learn of this
'impending doom' and have to learn to deal with the inevitable. Also, nanotechnology is introduced to assist humanity in overcoming this disaster,
but many of us are reluctant to accept this. So, of course, the government shoves it down our throats by releasing nanobots into the water systems.
Anyway, this film is not necessarily about the disaster, but the way humans deal with potentially deadly change that's out of their control.
I thought this sort of storyline was unique, but interestingly enough, I discovered an article of exactly this scenario.
Cosmic Disaster Scenario
I also found this documentary excerpt on YouTube
The popular science site says we probably won't hit one for at least 40 million years. But if the galactic plane (dark rift) really is filled with
cosmic dust, I could see this scenario being possible.
This is my first topic on this site. Let me know what you think of this theory?
