Nibiru conspiracists believe that SpaceX is launching a Planet X research probe into space
The brainchild of South African genius billionaire Elon Musk, will launch a secret payload codenamed Zuma, into orbit tomorrow.
The details of the operation have been kept under wraps triggering conspiracy theorists to speculate what is on board the Falcon 9 rocket.
The Falcon 9 launch will take place on Wednesday November 15, in an 8pm to 10pm EST time window from Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
But an article published on SomeonesBones.com, alleges that an anonymous SpaceX insider, knows the “truth” behind the top secret launch.
The questionable source claims that Mr Musk is part of a global cabal of elitists who have been granted covert knowledge of the impeding Nibiru cataclysm.
The article quotes the source, saying: “Elon is secretly obsessed with Nibiru. I’ve known him for ten years; I know how the man thinks.
“The government promised him ‘life after Nibiru’ if he got onboard with their program and promised to keep it all hush hush.
“That’s why all the payloads are classified; they deal with scientific instruments created to better gauge Nibiru’s time line and the effects that will imperil our planet once it crosses.”
The Nibiru cataclysm, also known as the Planet X or Wormwood theory, is an doomsday prediction about a rogue planetary system barreling towards Earth.
Planet X or Nibiru is online hoax about a rouge planetary system heading for Earth
Doom-mongers obsessed with Nibiru, believe that a Brown Dwarf star system with its own planets and moons, orbits our Sun every 3,600 years or so.
The US government assigned Northrop Grumman the responsibility of acquiring launch services for this mission
PlanetX will supposedly wipe out millions of people on Earth, when its passing will trigger volcanoes, mass earthquakes and shift the poles to the equator.
But the bizarre article claims that SpaceX and Nasa are working together to study Nibiru’s approach in advance, by delivering crucial research instrumentation into space.
The source allegedly said: “This launch will carry a deep space thermal imaging satellite into orbit.
“Elon has met with high ranking military and civilian officials several times during the last two months. There’s a reason the government is enlisting public help—for money and secrecy.
“Do you know why Obama killed the shuttle program? Because too many questions were being asked about what exactly those orbiters were doing up there.
“By relying on people like Elon, the government can largely absolve itself of culpability.”
But the reality of what will happen tomorrow, is far from the outrageous allegations presented in the article.
In fact, the Falcon 9 rocket will deliver a payload into orbit for defence contractor Northrop Grumman, on behalf of the US Government.
The SpaceX launch is actually delivering a payload for a private defence contractor
Lon Rains, communications director at Northrop Grumman’s Space Systems Division, told Florida Today: “The US government assigned Northrop Grumman the responsibility of acquiring launch services for this mission.
“We have procured the Falcon 9 launch service from SpaceX. This event represents a cost effective approach to space access for government missions.”
Another crucial factor debunking the article’s theory, is the fact that Nibiru simply does not exist.
The Nibiru cataclysm is a popular internet hoax popularised in the late 1990s by UFO ‘truther’ Nancy Lieder.
Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, ridiculed the idea of the rogue system.
He told Express.co.uk: ”I don’t know what to say except that it’s nonsense.”
Meanwhile Nasa’s leading scientist Dr David Morrison, said: “There is no credible evidence whatever for the existence of Nibiru. There are no pictures, no tracking, no astronomical observations.
“I can quite specifically say how we know Planet X or Nibiru does not exist and does not threaten the Earth.
“Firstly, if there was a planet headed into the inner solar system that was going to come close to the Earth, it would already be inside the orbit of Mars, it would be bright, it would be easily visible to the naked eye – if it was up there it would be easy to see it, all of us could see it.”
