Due to the secrecy surrounding this launch, theorists are now very suspicious about its actual intentions.
In true conspiracy fashion, they have put two and two together and determined that the launch definitely has something to do with Nibiru.
A post from October on the conspiracy website Someone's Bones claimed that Musk had been collaborating with the government in order to destroy Nibiru and that he is obsessed with the theory.
According to the website, an anonymous source said:
Elon is secretly obsessed with Nibiru, I’ve known him for ten years; I know how the man thinks.
The government promised him ‘life after Nibiru’ if he got onboard with their program and promised to keep it all hush hush.
That’s why all the payloads are classified; they deal with scientific instruments created to better gauge Nibiru’s time line and the effects that will imperil our planet once it crosses.
Granted, I don’t know all the details, but I know what I’ve been told, by Elon and others, and from what I’ve learned privately.
The source also claims that Musk has been working with the government and Nasa to gather intelligence on a brown dwarf star and seven other planets that "intersect the inner solar system every 3,600 years give or take."
They go on to add:
Elon has met with high ranking military and civilian officials several times during the last two months.
There’s a reason the government is enlisting public help – for money and secrecy.
Do you know why Obama killed the shuttle programme?
Because too many questions were being asked about what exactly those orbiters are doing up there.
