icon Orbit

Commencing the derivation of the orbital distance from the 12th planet to Earth, one should know that the 12th planet orbits both binary stars continuously every 3,657 years, since their creation eons ago. One of the foci, the Sun in this elliptical orbit, has a set of planets revolving around it. The other foci, the Dark One, is a star orbited by space trash, that has failed to light shortly after the localized big bang in this sector of the universe. The Dark One, a cosmic object of similar size and mass to the Sun, is located 11 degrees below the orbital plane of our solar system. It is approximately 68.81 billion miles away in the direction of the Orion constellation. During the 12th planet's travels through our solar system, it effects all planets differently according to their mass and proximity when it comes through. Some planets like the gas giants, being of equal or larger mass, faired well. Other smaller planets have not done so well, now only appearing as asteroid remnants that move about in the belt between Mars and Jupiter.

To visualize a clear picture of the 12th planet's orbital trajectory around both suns, the path has to be broken down into 6 segments. Three of these segments are a reflection of the other three. The arrival and returning path, if superimposed on each other, would be a mirror image. It is just the direction of the 12th planet towards either of both foci that determines the difference. Examining the 12th planet's orbital path, we will look at the arrival path, which is composed of 1,828.5 years and the first three segments of the orbit. Our starting point will begin with a location at the furthest distance from the far side of the Dark One. The first segment starts the journey, a 4 year trek with the 12th planet being slingshot away from the furthest point on Dark One's far side due to the combined gravitational attraction forces of both binary stars, accelerating it towards the unlit star. As the 12th planet travels through the system of the Dark One, it only encounters occasional space junk in its path. The velocity of the wandering planet reaches a maximum at its closest approach to the Dark One.

Upon passing, segment 1 ends and segment 2 of the orbit lasting 1,820 years begins. The gravitational forces controlling the movement of the 12th planet in the segment 2 has changed. The gravitational pull to the rear from the Dark One overwhelms the forward momentum and the attraction from the Sun, causing the 12th planet's orbital speed within a few years to be reduced to a crawl. The 12th planet covers 99.9% or 34.3709 billion miles of the distance to a half way point, which is 9.362 times the distance between the Sun and Pluto or 34.405 billion miles between the two stars in 215 weeks or 4.14 years. Essentially, it then hovers and Drifts ever so slowly covering a distance of 70 million miles or .019 S-P units in 1,812 years, while being caught in a gravitational tug of war at the mid point between the binary suns. It is here at this virtual gravitational null point in the middle of segment 2, that the 12th planet resume its original planetary form.
