It's all beginning to make sense......
THE hunt for the elusive Planet Nine could be over within 16 months, according to one of the scientists who first predicted its existence.
The mammoth celestial body has so far escaped our detection but the currently hypothetical planet which is believed to sit at the edge of our solar
system certainly seems to make its presence known.
The scientists who first suggested its existence earlier this year believe they’ve found further proof of the influence it yields over its cosmic
Researchers the University of Technology California claim Planet Nine is responsible for causing the solar system to “wobble” due to its massive
Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown first discovered the planet’s existence through mathematical modelling and computer simulations. They presented
their evidence in January but the world has not yet been able to observe the planet directly.
Even though its believed to be 10 times the size of Earth, it has likely escaped the gaze of telescopes because it is so far away from the Sun.
This week the pair of scientists, along with fellow astronomer Elizabeth Bailey, stoked the flames of speculation by presenting a study at the annual
meeting of planetary scientists of the American Astronomical Society claiming the mysterious planet is responsible for the perceived tilt of the
We’ve known that the sun’s rotational axis is tilted for about 200 years, but scientists have never understood exactly why.
Bailey, Batygin and Brown believe a large planet lurking in the depths of the solar system is responsible and the latest addition to their theory was
published this week by the Astrophysical Journal.
