PASADENA, Calif. — The putative "Planet Nine" may have tilted the entire solar system, researchers say.

In January, astronomers revealed evidence for the potential existence of another planet in the solar system. Researchers suggest that if this world — dubbed Planet Nine — exists, it could be about 10 times Earth's mass and orbit the sun at a distance about 500 times the distance from the Earth to the sun.

Previous research suggested that Planet Nine would possess a highly tilted orbit compared with the relatively thin, flat zone in which the eight official planets circle the sun. This led scientists to investigate whether Planet Nine's slant might help explain other tilting seen elsewhere in the solar system. The Evidence for 'Planet Nine' in Images (Gallery)

Now, researchers suggest that Planet Nine's influence might have tilted the entire solar system except the sun.

"Planet Nine may have tilted the other planets over the lifetime of the solar system," said study lead author Elizabeth Bailey, an astrophysicist and planetary scientist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.

Prior work found that the zone in which the eight major planets orbit the sun is tilted by about 6 degrees compared to the sun's equator. This discrepancy has long been a mystery in astronomy.

What used to be dubbed as simply a "conspiracy" is gaining ground as being a real possibility among astrophysicists. More evidence keeps pointing that planet 9 seems to exist out there in the Oort cloud, and the newest research seems to indicate that planet 9 is very likely to have an orbit exceptionally wide, with an orbital period of 20,000 years puting it well beyond the orbits of the known planets. Planet 9 is likely to be more massive than Earth, but probably less massive than Neptune.

They do say, that there are also other possibilities, that other factors early in the life of our solar system could have caused these anomalies. However, if whatever is causing all these anomalies only existed early in the life of a young solar system, then why did all these ETNOs keep their current orbit if there is nothing keeping them where they are now?

Here are a couple of videos of the Caltech researchers talking about planet 9.

Below are some of the research which points to the possibility of planet 9 existing. We can already measure the influence of it's gravity, which tells us it is out there, we just need visual confirmation.

The inclination of the planetary system relative to the solar equator may be explained by the presence of Planet 9

Below are some past threads about planet 9 which if it is out there, as it's gravity tells us, then it means something larger is keeping it in it's orbit.

Great post! Replying so I can watch videos and come back to reply properly.

Well this wouldn't be Nibiru if this comes to be true.

Will be a fantastic discovery if it is discovered.
The math is there to predict where it will be so hopefully we get an answer on this soon!

I am Tamil
Tamil is one of the oldest languages in the world. Some say tamil is the thee oldest on earth.
Our religion is saivam.
Saivam is the base of Hinduism. We have multiple gods. Some are old kings some are super natural beings.

Every temples have this this sub temple. Temple inside temple. Called nava kiraham temple.

This temple has 9 gods . Each represent each planets.

As usual temples from old world are build in magnetic points in earth.

Google it.

Recently similar temples are fund in east of india by an British diver looking for some "rare fish" . This temples are under water and miles from beach. Wood fixing found in the temples, carbon dated to 12,000 years.

Next day after release of this info. Indian government ban all shipping to this aria. Due to terrorist activities.
The british guy was deported. Turned out he worked in British museum befor his trip to india looking for rare fish.

Google it.

Excuse my ignorance on the subject, but I have a few questions.

Why would everything except the sun have tilted?

Wouldn't it still be making our solar system tilt with its orbit as it travels? If its on an angle it will go "below us to over us". If you get my meaning. Do they have any proof the Earth has tilted from one side to the other multiple times throughout Earth history? (Not human history). Its orbit is only20,000 years. Earth has been here a lot longer than that so we would have tilted with its orbit hhundred/thousands of time.
