The study found that we wrongly thought we were in a ‘safe zone’
Scientists discovered a correlation between extinction events on Earth to the path our solar system takes through crowded areas of the Milky Way
The galactic disk of the Milky Way contains dense clumps of dark matter
Researchers claim the dark matter can throw comets into planet’s path
Earth may be in great danger as the sun’s path through the galaxy sends comet flying towards our planet, scientists have warned.
Researchers have identified a 26 million-year cycle of meteor impacts that coincides with the timing of mass extinctions over the past 260 million years.
The doomsday events are linked to the motion of the sun and its family of planets through the dense mid-plane of the Milky Way.
