Could this be the one that kills all of humankind?

The Daily Caller
The sun may have a companion star that periodically bombards Earth with storms of comets and asteroids, according to scientists from Lund University and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.
New studies of Earth's impact craters found asteroids tended to hit roughly every 26 million years, adding to evidence that mass extinction events could be driven by a dim companion star to our sun named after the Greek goddess of revenge, Nemesis. Under this theory, the next apocalyptic asteroid will hit Earth in 10 million years.
