Planet X - The 9th Planet In The Solar System
The solar system appears to have a new ninth planet. Astronomers say a Neptune-sized planet lurks beyond Pluto.
Astronomers Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena announced evidence that a body nearly the size of Neptune—but as yet unseen—orbits the sun every 15,000 years.
During the solar system’s infancy 4.5 billion years ago, they say, the giant planet was knocked out of the planet-forming region near the sun.
Slowed down by gas, the planet settled into a distant elliptical orbit, where it still lurks today.
