(ORDO NEWS) — In recent years, scientists have repeatedly returned to the issue of the ninth planet – Planet X, which is supposedly located at the outer border of the solar system. Astronomers presented strong evidence for the existence of the body, but it was never noticed.
Recent studies prove that objects in our solar system are indeed influenced by something. Planet X is called the culprit for various processes.
Not so long ago, experts from Yale University began to look for new methods of detecting the ninth planet. Scientists plan to look at the night sky with telescopes that have a “shift and combine” function. The experts want to shift the received images along different orbital trajectories, and then merge them.
Many astronomers believe that there is a body behind Pluto. It is difficult to see it, but it is there. So, according to planetary scientist Konstantin Batygin from the University of California, the probability of the presence of Planet X is 99.9%. The expert’s colleagues believe that the body is 10 times larger than the earth. The planet is several tens of times farther than Neptune. If this is actually the case, it means that the revolution around the star takes about 20 thousand years.
Malena Rice and Greg Laughlin, experts at Yale University, recorded signals from three trans-Neptunian bodies, which are small objects beyond the orbit of Neptune. If it is possible to confirm the reality of at least one candidate object, it will be possible to find out the dynamics of the outer solar system and some properties of Planet X.
Of course, not all scientists share the opinion of their colleagues. Thus, Ethan Siegel, a specialist in the theorist of the Big Bang, noted that astronomers do not have enough deep and complete data to detect the ninth planet. Trans-Neptunian bodies should be in a specific region of outer space, and not arise sporadically.
