And what is it that we know about gravity that means it can't exist?
All matter has mass. Put simply, mass creates gravitational attraction. This attraction is proportional to the mass. It has been understood for 400 years now how the mass of the Sun causes the planets to stay in orbit. These planets also have mass and affect one anothers' orbits as well. People have been observing these orbits very carefully for thousands of years, with increasing precision. If there were another massive body in the Solar System, these observations would show a discrepancy. They do not, therefore there is no large body composed of matter left unaccounted for, at least out to the Kuiper belt.
Oh, and while I'm here:
In Russia, too, they have always respected the good humor and a healthy laughter. In the first warm days (which approximately begin in the beginning of April) the ancient Slavs went out to "scare" the winter away. They dressed in animal skins, wore masks and staged noisy presentations accompanied by laughter. Well, the actual April Fool's Day was first introduced by Peter I. Since then, this unofficial holiday in Russia has been adored both by adults and children. To mark April 1 in Russia means charging with positive emotions for the upcoming year. Perhaps it is only in this country that they treat humor so "seriously" and cannot imagine the holiday without the funny practical jokes. The joke might be kind, funny and even extreme, if you want, but in the end it all should end in laughter with tears (of joy, of course). Besides, on April 1 in Moscow and other Russian cities they arrange various comedy shows and concerts, which are worth visiting in order to experience unforgettable pleasure.

For what it's worth, I've determined that the video was taped from a transmission of "Events Moscow Time" with Oksana Podriga on Russia's TV-Center. Since she is an otherwise credible journalist (Moscow's "Sharon Stone" according to one interviewer) and the fact that the mysterious planet will become visible "in May," I am assuming this piece aired in April, as in, April 1st. I have searched the network's home page and can find no reference to it. April Fool's hoax strongly suspected.

What is an explanation of insanity?
doing the same thing over an over and expecting different results?
While that is not the real definition, I must say this search into planet X
resembles that action..Insane
Do those of you that believe this x planet is a possibility, really think the Hundreds
of amateur astronomers GLOBALLY wouldnt be able to locate this object if it were real?
lets at least try to think logically here, we can see all the planets in our solar system..
Why can we not see this x planet..Maybe it is being cloaked by the alien race right?
Please try to process a real possibility..not mythology.

Why is that?
