Ok, I decided to do some digging in search of Infrared telescopes that would be able to get a good view of this thing(if it exists). I wasn't
interested in anything NASA might be using, because let's face it, we don't usually get the entire story from them.
So, I came across a very interesting telescope called the LBT.
The external linkLBT (Large Binocular Telescope) is a collaboration between astronomical institutes in Germany, Italy, and the US. The telescope is
located on Mount Graham, near Tucson, Arizona at an altitude of about 3200 m. The LBT is a binocular telescope consisting of two 8.4-meter mirrors on
a common mount (Fig. 1). This telescope is equivalent in light-gathering power to a single 11.8 meter instrument.
Interestingly enough, they added infrared equipment to this telescope that actually detected a cool brown dwarf 10 - 30 LY away. The equipment is
called LUCIFER. Yeah, that's kind of odd. You can read about the brown dwarf find at this article...
The official website of the LBT is located here..
So, that was kind of exciting to learn about the cool equipment we have scanning the stars. If anything, at least these doomsday theories have
improved my scientific knowledge and interest, so that's only a good thing right?
From the LBT website, the latest press release was dated June 15, 2010.
The latest current news was this,
The LBT will be hosted a Science Meeting from March 31, 2011 to April 2, 2011 in Tucson, Arizona.
Science meeting eh? More like a doomsday preparation conference.
Ok, just trying to feed the flames, sorry.
Anyways, my point is that if anything can clear this up, that telescope could look in the direction where Nibiru is supposed to be and detect it.
Does anybody have good intel on where this telescope is currently pointed at? There were contacts listed on the press release portion of the
