Astronomers who suspect a hidden planet, known as Planet X or Planet Nine, are affecting arriving and emerging from icy sites beyond Neptune, and we say that we can soon look at the distant, mysterious world.
A 92-page document to be published in Physics Reports, a team of Caltech researchers will examine the evidence of the existence of Planet X and describe a world that is closer and smaller than previously thought [1
The idea is that the remote objects that Battigin mentions are influenced by the gravitational attraction of a large planet
Now Battigin of CalTech, his former mentor Michael Brown (aka will like " PlutoKiller in social media, and colleagues Fred Brown and Juliet Becker of the University of Michigan have updated about us, and if their theory holds water, it would radically redefine the way we anticipate our Solar System
"Our new efforts, both theoretical and numerical, suggest that in the original book we overrated the parameters of Planet Nine," explained Battigin.
The new analysis draws a picture of a planet with a mass that is five times greater than that of the Earth and which is about 400 astronomical units (AUs). By comparison, Pluto is only about 40 AU of us. The authors also conclude that the invisible planet will probably be a rocky super-Earth, not a gas giant. But the prospects for habitation, of course, are rather gloomy, just as the sun will be at such a distance.
Although this analysis does not say anything directly about whether Planet Dane is there, it shows that the hypothesis rests on a solid foundation, "said Brown, a professor of planetary astronomy at Caltech, in a message. seeks to examine some of the criticisms of the planet's hypothesis and the alternative explanations for the strangeness observed in the Kuiper Belt: For example, Battigin and his colleagues are not convinced by a competing theory that a massive disk of debris beyond Neptune could explain the strange orbits of far
"The strongest argument in favor of Planet Nine is that all independent evidence can be explained by a proposed new planet with the same properties. In other words, there are many reasons to believe that Planet Nine is real, not only
If Planet X exists and is as this last book describes, it will also be a key missing part of our solar system.
As a catalog of known exoplanets around other stars quickly expanded over the last decade, it is becoming increasingly clear that our system is actually quite unusual. This is because rocky greenhouses look common everywhere else, but there is no such thing in our solar system.
"Planet Nine will be the closest thing we'll find in a window in the properties of a typical planet."
But he admits that all the speculation around Planet X will only remain until someone finally notices it. "The prospect of one day seeing true images of Planet Nine is absolutely electrified," he says. "Although finding Planeta nine in astronomy is a great challenge, I am very optimistic that we will shape it in the next decade."
