Lets keep a little perspective here. A brown dwarf entering the Solar System itself, as in, within the inner planets, would be catastrophic in a way
hard to describe. Suicide might not be the worst idea...If such a thing were 100% confirmed as happening and without question, progressing. Hopeless
would be a fair term, if it were coming into the inner Solar System where we live. Yeah, Hopeless would be a fair term, I think. Without a ship to be
Good thing that's not happening, huh? lol.... Tyche and Nemesis both are theories but FAR FAR distant theories. Wayyyy out in the oort cloud,
theories. I think the worst we have to fear in any direct way, if either exists, is that they throw objects out of the Oort cloud that may hit us one
of these days. That's rather rude for a nieghbor...but again, one far too distant to even send probes to and learn in our lifetimes if something is
there or not, as I understand it.
One of my first threads on here was about Tyche. I happened to have this floating around from that.
(That's the scary version..and back around the Elenin fear days when at least a half dozen objects were being worried about by some, around the same
time. It shows the Oort cloud and how far out it is in general relation to everything)
There are many though...and this little guy is what had originally cued me anyway. This has a projected return trip time of about 11,400 years. If
anything should have rung bells of interest and coincidence, you'd have thought this one would for the timing to historic events.
Oh well.. Just my two cents. I'm not worried abut the idea of a Brown Dwarf in the close neighborhood until or unless we start seeing RADICAL changes
and behavior in the outlaying planets. They'd get smacked around first and I don't think there would be anything subtle about it from that kind of
