The Kuiper Belt
Could this be the Doomsday Disaster?
The Kuiper Belt and What Is It?!
The Kuiper belt is a huge disk of cosmic rock that stretches across the universe somewhere between Neptune and Pluto. The giant scare with the Kuiper belt is that if the gravity from another near by planet disturbs the belt and can pull a cosmic rock out of the orbit and fling it towards earth. (Also known as a meteor)
Another scenario with The Kuiper Belt is that if a meteor were to come out of the belt and come before the sun, that the sun will make it explode, yet all of the debris from the meteor will cover he sun's heat rays and cut off the planet Earth's heat, causing another Ice Age to happen. This will take the planet hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of years to return to normal.
