The only information that suggests something neferious about Gene Shoemaker's
and something burning down that I can find is this video here:
A 6.35 minute video that is factually wrong (trying to show that the planet's orbits have shifted, with the proof being solar satellite images over a
12 year period, ignoring that the satellite changes orientation, and that the photo's are taken at different times of the year, with the Earth's
position around the sun being different during those times, and because all the planets around the sun have a inclination to the solar plane, is
ignoring that fact which will cause the planets to appear in different positions in the sky. So the video maker is either very ignorant about
astronomy.....or is preying on those who don't know anything about astronomy).
Gene Shoemaker was not a astronomer. He was a geologist. His WIFE was the astronomer, Carolyn
. She's still alive at the ripe old age of 83.
The only "lab" that burned down was Mount Stromlo Observatory
in 2003, due to the
2003 Canberra Brushfires
. Even though it burned down:
All but one of the telescopes, the workshops, the design offices, the administration offices and the library and archives were destroyed.
Fortunately, the offices of astronomers and students, the lecture rooms and the computer laboratories survived, so staff were able to be back on site
two weeks after the fire.
Gene Shoemaker died in 1997. So much for "The Next Day".
Many of the astronomers dying that are cited by these stories are over 60 years of Age. Statistically speaking, their deaths are not all that
As far as "because they were looking for Planet X", the "Planet X" they were looking for (the ones that were, many are cited that were NOT looking
for anything like that), was a possible planet beyond Pluto, orbiting beyond Pluto, and not coming into the inner solar system (IE NOT NIBIRU).
