nemesis theory

Theory of animal extinction, suggesting that a sister star to the sun caused extinction of groups of animals such as dinosaurs. The theory holds that the movement of this as yet undiscovered star disrupts the Oort cloud of comets every 26 million years, resulting in the Earth suffering an increased bombardment from comets at these times.
