Vatican's Lucifer searching for Nibiru with NASA

Well the title is interesting, isn't it?
And actually telling the truth, depending which way you look at it..
Well, NASA has for some time now speculated about a planet in the outskirts of the Solar System, responsible for large meteors, comets and Cycles of Mass Extinction every 26 million years or so... This planet, dubbed Nemesis, is supposed to be cold, dark and very far away, and following a highly elliptical orbit that periodically brings him to our neighborhood to bring mayhem and annihilation.  Ring a bell?
Well, they call it Nemesis, the rest of the world Nibiru. You know, 2012 and Sitchin, Babylonian Gods, the Long Count and all-around destruction... Fun times.
NASA's rather mundane undertaking is made more interesting by the fact that they are assisted by the Vatican, no less, and their aptly-named telescope, Lucifer(...)
Now, before we all get highly paranoid (not that there's anything wrong with that) the acronym stands for "Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research". Did that make sense?
The planet they are searching for is thought to be several times the size of Jupiter,  a red or brown dwarf maybe, and the geeks working in NASA have affectionately called it The Death Star.
I don't know about you, but when it comes down to extinction, I prefer murderous alien invaders over a lifeless planet anytime. Unless Nibiru is inhabited by murderous aliens. Or angry Ancient Gods. Or..
Oh I give up.
