I was refered to an article in thge Daily Mail (yes, I know,the U.K.'s answer to the enquirer) today about this. I know this notion has been kicked around for a number of years, but this seems to be a more recent calculation. Just wondering what your thoughts are on it. Also a couple question for you guys. Can the ort cloud be directly observed other than the ocaisional comet that comes in from it? How, other than comets being hurled at us from time to time, do we know of the existence of the ort cloud? By math?
