Researchers are afraid of the unknown nature of the huge amounts of energy rushing to the planet.
Princeton University astronomers observed the events in space and found that the Earth is approaching a "death ray" consisting of electromagnetic and gravitational waves, radio waves, gamma rays and X-rays united in a single beam.
According to scientists, a similar amount of energy when approaching a planet can lead to the destruction of all life.
While the nature of a "death ray" and the exact threat is unclear, it will later become known when the energy beam is closer to the Milky Way. Then the researchers can determine their origin and the probability that they "attack" the earth.
The last time there was a lot of evidence that soon will be the end of all life on planet Earth. Such predictions excite humanity for almost the entire story, but so far none of them has come true.
At the moment, a prediction is very popular that the mysterious planet Nibiru will hit Earth on September 19th, but the conspiracy theorists argue that that will happen on August 16th. However, they can postpone the date, as many skeptics believe, because even when the Apocalypse happens, nobody knows when and what was right.
