The mysterious 'super Earth' lurking on the edge of our solar system

His team added that they have found the gravitational footprints of the ninth planet. This hypothetical ninth planet is thought to be much, much bigger than any dwarf planet, and would be several times the size of Earth based on the calculations which point to its existence.

Now NASA says there would be more holes in its calculations if the planet didn't exist, than if it does.

It is being said that the objects are tilted 30 degrees downward compared to the plane where the eight official planets circle the sun.

The mysterious planet is said to be 10 times larger than Earth and 20 times further away from the sun than Neptune.

"If you were to remove this explanation and imagine Planet Nine does not exist, then you generate more problems than you solve".

"If a planet is there, it's extremely distant and will stay that way (with no chance - in case you're wondering - of ever colliding with Earth, or bringing "days of darkness")".

The singer says 'monogamy is work
Thanks, Pink , for showing all of us that maintaining a solid relationship isn't easy-even when you're rich and famous. In a recent interview with The Guardian , the Bad Trauma singer gave an unfiltered look into married life with Carey.


She explains that the planet orbits are tilted six degrees away from the Sun's equator.

"Over long periods of time, Planet Nine will make the entire solar-system plane precess or wobble, just like a top on a table", Prof Batygin said.

Experts argue that the presence of a ninth planet explains the principles of relations between space objects in the galaxy and the distribution of the existing planets in the Solar system. A picture published by Futurism.com shows the supposed orbit of the six most distant Kuiper Belt objects and Planet Nine, demonstrating how the latter explains the former.

"These things have been twisted out of the solar system plane with help from Planet Nine and then scattered inward by Neptune". It turns out that Planet Nine provides a natural avenue for their generation. Such an event would disturb the balance of the system, and might even cause it to tilt, putting all planets in danger. Astronomers have been trying to find planet 9 using telescopes and computer simulation models.

It could one day hurtle through our solar system, sending planets "pinballing" into outer space or plunging into the Sun.

"If a planet is there, it's extremely distant and will stay that way", the U.S. space agency said. "We now better understand how the expanded observational dataset shaped by the gravity of Planet Nine".
