I recently saw a documentary, The Great Year, that claimed our sun may be part of a binary star system. Does anyone know anything about this? The astronomy class I'm taking never went over that idea and it has blown my mind.

Pretty much all speculation. Some here at SDC have proposed Banards Star, as the Nemisis Binary to our sun, that sends comets hurtling towards earth from the Ort Cloud, causing mass extinctions every 26 million yrs.<br />Interesting, but highly speculative. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font size="4"><strong></strong></font></p> </div>
