New Planet at the edge of our Solar System may have been discovered.
Astronomers Michael Brown and Konstantin Batygin at the California Institute of Technology have announced they found evidence by studying the motion of dwarf planets that a big hidden planet may exist. If it exists, it would be 20 times farther away than Neptune and 10 times bigger than Earth, estimated to orbit the sun every 10,000 - 20,000 years.

We already have nine planets. I'm a Plutoist and I deny that Pluto is not a planet. Tongue

Pretty cool though. A 10,000 year day, wow. That'd be a lot of sunblock.

Pluto is still a kind of a planet, it's a dwarf planet lol and yeah probably not an inhabitable planet.

Also Michael Brown, one of the guys who discovered this planet is also the guy responsible for Plutos demotion.

Now for the hard work of trying to find the planet with telescopes.

Dear NdT,

I love you dearly and I know you're brilliant in many ways but your shortsightedness on this Pluto issue is more than I can bare. I'm sorry but I feel we should break-up. Pluto has had my heart since childhood. Heart

I must be true to myself.

Best of luck,

Heatheness Big Grin

A 10,000 year year, not day.
