Doesn't say anything about a 10th planet.

And the other "minor planets" are still not as massive as Quaoar. Oh well, good find though.

Yea, I know, but it is still a planet. And I just used that linked cause it was referencing Venezuela.

Technically Pluto isn't even a seems to have just gotten the distinction because it has a "moon".... I'd lump it as a planetoid as well...

Who knows though, maybe the object is actually Wormwood???
That would suck...

Well...if NASA is trolling for Publicity,
then they'd make a much ado spectacle
of the KBO objects found/authenticated
earlier this year...

However, if there is a 'important discovery'
...which can be hyped over a Fortnight,

the 'news' isn't THAT compelling or threatning!

just a guess-> the Nemesis Star theory??
or guess #2-> a brown dwarf star beyond the Kuiper Belt??

(both these theories have been around awhile,
Clarke/Bradberry/Pohl? some si-fi writer addressed
this years ago)

most likely the mathematical evidence suggests we
should aim hubble in a specific direction...and then...

Naming the Object-->> Gotta Be Associated With The
2004 Athens Olympiad!!! & Greek Goddesses no doubt!!

Well, one thing for sure. They (NASA) sure know how to get ones attention using words like "Unusual" and "Mysterious"

Sure sounds like it might be more then another big rock out past Pluto

I have to admit, I LOVE this kind of stuff, get's me all excited. Hope this is something big!! LOL

This site rules, the object has already been idenified on here. Sedna is what they're calling it.

does anyone have the link to NASA TV?

Thanks Jrod, but NASA has a website that streams their news conferences live over the internet. I don't get that station on my cable lineup, so my only choice is the streaming vid.

Never mind, i found it.

It would be to small to be planet X. The orbit is wrong as well,isnt planet X supposed to have a 3500 year orbit around the sun. Very eliptical.
Here is a link about the size.

They don't care enough for it to be much..

It's just some routine discovery, Nasa funded some astronomer to look some spot, he found something him and 5 other people on earth will be ecstatic about, and the rest of us might think 'neat'.

While I'd love to get excited, I hate getting my hopes up for nothing. I imagine if it was a brown dwarf they'd have made it an international open press conference, instead its a tiny little thing that's insider only and gonna be played for our amusement tomorrow.

Still, fun to think about the idea that we've found a giant daimond, or something that looks constructed, or a small, small, weak star, or a new real planet... One day we'll get the good news, Contact is on the way..

A brown dwarf being annouced in our own solar system would be one hell of an announcement with anyone vaguely interested in astronomy.

Anyone else think it is odd that they named it after the god of the ocean?

Could it be a water planet?

We know that planets dont neccaserily need heat from the sun to produce liqued water.

Probably not.

There's more on it here

Apparently there is harsh debate over whether this is actually a planet. Of course, it may actually be bigger than Pluto which you would think would qualify it as a planet, but as others here have said, there is still serious debate over whether Pluto is actually a planet.
