Ninth Planet Possible Discovery

“The Earthlings have finally theorized Our existence. They’re calling us ‘Planet 9′.”

“Hey, it’s catchier than ‘Planet Bob’. “

Ok, here’s the straight dope. Nobody has discovered an actual 9th planet ( Pluto used to be the 9th planet until its demotion to dwarf planet). However, researchers over at Cal Tech have gone out on a limb to confirm the THEORY. Based on how the planets in our solar system move, they confirm the theory that there MUST be another planet circling around out there.

Why haven’t we spotted it? It’s estimated to be 10-20 Billion miles away from us. Planet 9 has got an elliptical orbit (egg shaped) and in its orbit, the planet can be from 20-100 Billion miles from us. Still not impressed?

Planet 9 is believed to be 5,000 TIMES more massive than Pluto, and 10 Times more massive than the Earth. It’s orbit is between 10,000 and 20,000 years. Earth’s orbit circles the Sun once a year. So a little math would tell you that a typical Earth-type season ( Spring Summer, etc) would last 2,500 – 5,000 Years.
