“E pur si muove,”
it reads — “Nevertheless, it does move.”

-The words Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei uttered under his breath at the height of the Inquisition, right after abjuring his belief that the Earth revolved around the sun.

The Binary Research Institute was formed in 2001 to support and fund research regarding the hypothesis that the Sun is part of a binary star system. It is the goal of the Binary Research Institute to present evidence for this theory, showing that the motion of the sun along a binary orbital path can result in and better explain the same precessional motion that current LuniSolar and Earth Wobble theories attempt to account for.

The Binary Research Institute is dedicated to the exploration of theories that aim to expand our understanding of celestial motion as it relates to our own Solar System, and the Earth over long periods of time.

The institute’s founder is Walter W. Cruttenden, an amateur astronomer and archaeoastronomer.

“The solar system moves — and this, in turn, changes the Earth’s orientation to the distant stars — a phenomenon we call precession.”

We welcome contact with other researchers and interested individuals, so feel free to get in touch.
