How will the World End? Well according to an article published in the magazine Popular Science almost 100 years ago in 1936, it may be from the passing of what they refer to as a Wandering Sun.
"For many millions of years, our planet has circled its parent sun on a time schedule so accurate that it varies only a fraction of a second in each century. The earth is always "on time" throughout every round trip.
Yet, it is quite possible that this regular and peaceful schedule may someday be interrupted by an unforeseen event, which, if it does occur, will probably bring humanity's greatest and perhaps final, catastrophe! By means of simple experiments, you can study the possible ways in which our planet's doom might come, and show the forces which may someday bring ruthless destruction upon a helpless world.
Strangely, the way which offers the greatest menace to the earth is exactly the way in which the earth itself came into being! It is now generally believed that the material which later condensed into the planets of our solar system was drawn out of the sun in huge tidal streamers, raised by the close passage of another; a wandering sun.
This passage may have been almost a grazing collision, for two great, flaming cigars of incandescent matter, millions of miles long, were lifted by the huge tidal forces out of our sun.
Later, when the invader receded, and the duel of gravitational forces subsided, the flaming streamers were left circling around the suns which had torn them loose in their titanic tug of war."
So what do you think? Is this a likely possibility for the end of the world? And could this be the same cosmic body that is commonly referred to today as Planet X, Nibiru or the Red Kachina?
