Sounds impossible to believe that there may be yet another planet in our solar system, but it true. Scientists have found evidence of a new and mysterious world. Here’s why they think there is a ninth planet:
- Astronomers say they found newly found Kuiper Belt Objects (KBO) that suggest where the 9th planet should be
- The mysterious planet is almost as large as Neptune
- Caltech scientists found evidence of its existence in January 2016
Since this new discovery, numerous scientists have been looking at the documented facts to confirm proof of its existence. It has been getting a lot of attention and now, Mike Brown of the academic home of NASA, Caltech, claims he found substantial evidence to back this theory. This is why they made an official announcement about the new discovery.
Astronomers believe that this gas giant sits at the last limits of our solar system and it is about ten times larger than Earth. It is gaseous and resembles Neptune and Uranus.
Professor Mike Brown Makes Claims
Ever since scientists have discovered it, the mystery surrounding it has made scientists work harder to confirm its existence. The evidence found so far is under constant scrutiny. Professor Mike Brown claims that the evidence strongly suggests that their suspicions about the ninth planet are almost confirmed. He even tweeted the photo of the planet showing the plot of the newly discovered KBO as shown below:
Some time ago, Brown also wrote, “Hey Planet Nine fans, a new eccentric KBO was discovered. And it is exactly where Planet Nine says it should be.”
The KBO is “uo3L91” and appears with a blue line in the graph below:
A subsequent tweet by Brown said that the Outer Solar System Origins Survey (OSSOS) made the discovery on the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope. Planet Nine has an opposite orientation from outer planets. Brown also tweeted that, “I haven’t done the statistics yet, but I suspect this takes the probability of this being a statistical fluke down to ~.001% or so.”
However, it is important to mention that so far there is no conclusive evidence to prove the existence of the ninth planet. A number of researchers are still working on the theory, based on the few facts found until date, which suggest the existence of a Planet IX or even Planet X.
