Fans of Decipher should find this eerily familiar.
From Science Daily:
“We have detected a dozen arcs, puffed out by the star in the course of its life. The faintest shell we found is already at a distance of 7,000 billion kilometers from the star.” The different shells were ejected by the star with intervals of 500 to 1,700 years. The astronomers in the team believe such shells, even fainter, are also present further out…”
12,000 year cycles not so far fetched after all. God, I’m good.
