Looks like there might be newly discovered planet in our solar system

Right.. It's all speculation at this point...



The researchers, Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown, discovered the planet's existence through mathematical modeling and computer simulations but have not yet observed the object directly. - See more at: www.caltech.edu...

I'm not quite sure "speculation" would be the appropriate word. More so, "we have observations that suggest the existence" of the 9th planet.

There is evidence, after all, just not 'hard evidence'

Another thread just popped up and was quickly closed... It said that Caltech had 'confirmed' ....NIBURU!

Exciting News.

I'll start a kickstarter project for the lander then...

They say its 20 times further than Neptune, which puts it at around 60AU. Voyager 1 is past 120AU.

Its going to be pretty cold though, about 14K thats -259C incidentally close to the melting point of hydrogen,
so seas of liquid hydrogen :-)

Hey Marid Audran & Everybody!


Great thread!

Here is a nice (lengthy) article regarding this new finding: phys.org...
A few pictures and some in depth explanations. I found it interesting.

Sorry, but your maths is a bit off.

Neptunes average distance from the Sun is 30.1au. So 20x30.1au would be 602au from the Sun.

Is that you, as in "U", RUBIN?

Ha! Yes.

That means its outside the Heliosphere.

If indeed this is the case, how come the trajectory of the New Horizons probe that did a fly-by of Pluto last year was not effected by this mysterious planet 9 and it's gravitational field? I am certainly no expert in such matters but I would have thought that such corrections would need to be accounted for so that the probe actually arrived where intended? (which it did).

Still, like Carl Sagan said, "Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known".

I don't think this discovery is Nibiru...there is a bigger badder planet out there yet and it will revive Nibiru talks for sure once it is discovered in the next year or two.

That is a cool article, thanks for sharing!

Incidentally, @Phage and others who are more scientifically minded, the paper is currently free in its entirety here at the Astronomical Journal.

How does planet TENnet sound?

But since it is only 9 you know where I'm going with this...

Because it's quite far away and would have no gravitational effect over such a large distance.

Pluto is roughly 40au from the Sun.

Planet 9 is roughly 602au from the Sun.

So a rough distance would be 562au from Pluto to Planet 9.

If Planet 9 had any effect on the prove then it would have had an effect on other bodies, which it hasn't (apart from the ones relatively close to it).

Hope that helps a bit.

I find it interesting that previously the main reason given that Niburu does not exist is the lack of gravitational evidence.
Now this guy comes along and says that he believes that a giant planet exists outside of the orbit of Pluto.... because of gravitational evidence.
Not saying anyone is right or wrong, I just thought it was interesting.


I thought Nibiru didn't exist, because Sitchin made it up, the planet of the crossing according to the Sumerians was Jupiter. Of course, you'd actually have to study Sumerian culture to know that...

Sitchin died. Revival denied

haha! So awesome to be alive at a time like this and enjoy some popcorn as to who says whats the de-li-o
anyways, good stuff!! i say we call it 'bob' or something if not....like frosthylia...some epic name

This is exactly why I will never completely eliminate Nibiru. There is just too many unknowns


Don't you understand, this is how confusion works , discover as many planets wandering in our dark beyond solar system, twice as far as pluto . And then ask the public witch one should be niburu?

Personally I think , that it maybe possible that as our solar system moves around the center of our milky way, we might run into rogue planetary body's ejected from other stars systems

I'm actually starting to give Nibiruns benefit of the doubt, though I'm still quite sure nothing will happen come March. But you have to admit this is getting strange, especially taking into account all of the David Bowie theories about this subject just before his death.

Phage,
why can we not use the Hubble to locate this planet.

Finally!!! Now the aliens can come and take Trump with them, he needs to build a wall around Pluto to protect it from Planet Nine!
