We have barely begun 2018 and we've already got another Nibiru story to deal with.

The mysterious planet, also known as Planet X, was supposedly set to destroy the entire Earth on at least four occasions in 2017 but nothing materialised.

Some conspiracy theorists remain certain that Nibiru will appear in our solar system in the next 12 months and bring about the end of days - but now there is also a theory that someone is trying to prevent it.

That someone is none other than Elon Musk and his space exploration company SpaceX, who are due to launch a new aircraft onboard a Falcon 9 rocket today.

Little is known about the Zuma satellite, but it is being launched in connection with the US government via a deal with the aerospace and defence company Northrop Grumman.

Space.com report that Zuma will go into a low-Earth orbit after taking off from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

The launch was delayed twice last year but SpaceX confirmed on Twitter that they are now targetting a launch on Sunday.

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.

It is highly unlikely that this launch has anything to do with Nibiru, a planet which has been labelled a hoax by Nasa, or that Obama killed the shuttle programme to kill speculation about it.

If it is true then hopefully the mission is a success and we won't have to listen to these ridiculous theories anymore.
