'ninth planet'?

Thought this was quite interesting. Article from the BBC>>

 

Case made for 'ninth planet'

jLU58oP.jpg

Artist's impression of the ninth planet: Telescopes are sure to try to track the object down.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

American astronomers say they have strong evidence that there is a ninth planet in our Solar System orbiting far beyond even the dwarf world Pluto. The team, from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), has no direct observations to confirm its presence just yet. Rather, the scientists make the claim based on the way other far-flung objects are seen to move. But if correct, the putative planet would have 10 times the mass of Earth.

The Caltech astronomers have a vague idea where it ought to be on the sky, and their work is sure to fire a campaign to try to track it down.

"There are many telescopes on the Earth that actually have a chance of being able to find it," said Dr Mike Brown.

"And I'm really hoping that as we announce this, people start a worldwide search to go find this ninth planet."

The group's calculations suggest the object orbits 20 times farther from the Sun on average than does the eighth - and currently outermost - planet, Neptune, which moves about 4.5 billion km from our star. But unlike the near-circular paths traced by the main planets, this novel object would be in a highly elliptical trajectory, taking between 10,000 and 20,000 years to complete one full lap around the Sun.

There is no planet in the universe that can replace Pluto.

 

Pluto, come back if you can hear me... :cry:

 

I-i miss you.

 

You still look like a movie, you still sound like a song, my God this reminds when we were young.

 

I will never forget you.

Since it's going to take years to find this sh*t why don't they get a name for it just in case, i'm voting Mukaichi Mion Anubis or Minerva
