Sun’s missing twin may have wiped out dinosaurs

- London: The solar system once had two suns, scientists believe, and one of them may have helped wipe out the dinosaurs. A theoretical physicist at the University of California and an astronomer from Harvard University have discovered that most stars are born with a “brother” and our own Sun is likely to be no exception. In fact, this twin, which is named a Nemesis, may have been responsible for forcing an asteroid into Earth’s orbit, leading to the extinction of the dinosaurs
