New Theory. It is really an Alien Space station. They hollowed out an entire planet and retrofitted it with tech and it acts as an orbiting outer fringe out post. From this death star like ship they can scan the immediate area of space and a whole civilization lives on this artificial planet ship. To save energy it maintains a weak orbit. But when D days comes they planet ship can come into contact with earth in a blink of an eye.

By the description they are giving, they are describing nibiru

That could possibly be true, but it still wouldn't be Nibiru, because the existence of Nibiru is supposed to be known due to its 3600-year orbit (i.e., it was supposed to have come through our part of the solar system before).
There may in fact be some sort of "outside object" coming our way that will one day zoom through the solar system, but if that ever happens it will have nothing whatsoever to do with the Nibiru story.

LOL! I really hope this is a sarcastic comment, though it's hard to tell! The Guardian is in another league mate. The Daily Mail is a broadsheet tabloid, they do not report news or reliable information - they report nonsense. They have many, many agendas - most of these revolve around creating fear over Gypsies, Muslims, Murders, etc. whilst focusing on celebrity gossip. Therefore, they have many reasons to lie - they do not have any responsibility to print the truth or facts and rarely do. Please do not mislead anyone into believing otherwise. This is literally one of the least credible sources of information in the UK after the Sun.

haha wikipedia... great site for misleading infomation with the majority is not true. Well im from near london and all i see everyday is people reading the metro, guardian, independant and daily mail so it cant be that bad surely?
Just have to do a basic google search for best UK newspapers and you come up with:
Sun,Daily Mirror,Daily Star for the great unwashed who want to read about big brother or wags.
Daily Mail,telegraph,Independent for those who can read and want to read news.
So yeah lets keep on this topic without drifting onto whats a credible newspaper here.
Amazing to think how many moons this new planet would have if Jupiter has 63!

If Tyche exists at that distance, its orbital period is likely more like tens of thousands of years. As a point of reference, I dug up the orbital period and distance for Sedna (en.wikipedia.org...) and its orbital period is about 12000 years, and about 518 AU from the sun. (its orbit is highly eccentric, so this varies a lot)
What really gets me about this potential discovery, though, is this. Suppose that, hypothetically, Tyche is real, and it has evaded detection until now. How many OTHER objects might be out there? Could there be two, three, ten, fifty? We're already finding Kuiper belt objects like Sedna, Orcus, Quaoar, or Eris; Eris is estimated to be even bigger than Pluto. Eris even has a moon...
Space is big. REALLY big. Who knows what else is out there? I love news stories like this. Even if it turns out to be wrong, it fires the imagination like nothing else.

Well, how much you can trust DailyMail, isn't it just another celebrity magazine.
