Is our Sun a Binary Star?

  1. Oct 1, 2005 #1
    Any thoughts on this, fellas? I have not read the book nor viewed the documentary (narrated by James Earl Jones) but I have read a few articles, and, well, precision is a complex sport, so I am intrigued with the notion....I am no astronomer though, only have a layman's fascination.

    Everything about this site tells me they're crackpots, including their terminology, their methods, their founder...

    What's worse, they're disputing basic gravitational effects in the Newtonian limit. In order to disprove the "LuniSolar" theory, they would have to disprove Newtonian gravity. Their inability to perform calculations beyond the junior high school level is probably hurting them more than they realize.
