I totally agree with the possibility of such objects existing. (If they do, especially if they have unusual orbits such is the norm with objects that
far out, think of what the Nibiru people are going to say about it!) Mogget, do you have any links that speak of such theories? So far all this
thread has come up with is nutball websites and speculation. Neither answers why space.com would say astronomers believe such things.
Thanks apc for the heads up on Nemesis, Richard Muller and Pan Starrs. This fits the bill! Apparently, Muller and some other astronomers came up
with the Nemesis theory after a couple paleontologists came up with a theory on statistical periods of extinctions. Nemesis is a theorized red or
brown dwarf star orbiting the sun that causes comets to crash into the inner solar system, causing extinctions. Pan Starrs is a University of Hawaii
telescope funded by the US Air Force to detect near Earth objects that threaten to cause impact events. Sounds like they are specifically looking
for Nemesis. Here's a couple links:
Smokey101 great thinking! Check out the Nemesis link.
alienstar when I searched 12th Planet on Wiki I came up with this:
I still lump him into the nutball category but I have to admit that there are some interesting similarities between his Nibiru and Nemesis.
uknow_me 72 do you have any proof of this? Just a link that states such a theory would do. Strangely enough another name for Nemesis is Death Star.
I haven't seen your other posts do you have links?
alienstar TrES-4 is an extrasolar planet. It orbits another star. There are hundreds of known planets that do so. One of the more interesting ones
lately is HD 189733b. They believe it is made of water. Here's a link:

Pellevoison, the IAU has a proposal to recognize Pluto-Charon just like you said. Check out this image displaying the proposed new solar system:
