lloyd stanley gordon's curator insight, October 28, 2013 1:35 AM

It  is  said that  the  planet  Nibiru,  the  10 th  planet  of  our solar  system,  is  swathed in Nanonparticles of  gold. I  am  not  at  all  sure  how  true  this  is  but  Earth  or  our  sacred planet Terra could  likewise  benefit  by  the  use  of  these  particles. Do  read  this  post  for  its  cutting edge  appeal.
