Bronson Beta. Bronson Beta was created by Edwin Balmer (Speed Spaulding, Luther Trant) and appeared in “When Worlds Collide” (Blue Book, Sept 1932-Feb 1933) and “After Worlds Collide” (Blue Book, Nov 1933-Apr 1934).

Bronson Beta is a runaway planet that enters our solar system and assumes an orbit around our sun. Beta’s sibling, Bronson Alpha, sweeps too close to Earth, causing earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tidal waves, and only two rockets manage to escape from Earth and land on Beta, which they find is habitable. In the sequel ships from other countries land on Beta, leading to a war with the Yellow Peril “Dominion of Asian Realists.”
