Our Sun Might Have a Twin


While the concept of a "twin" star forming alongside our Sun might seem like science fiction, recent astronomical observations suggest there may have been another star born alongside ours in a binary system billions of years ago. This hypothetical "sister sun" is believed to have been ejected from the system early on and is now lost in the vastness of space.

Question: The existence of a potential "sister sun" raises several fascinating questions. Could this lost star have had its own planetary system, potentially harboring life? Could its gravitational influence have played a role in the early development of our own solar system?
