>tfw Planet Nine is finally discovered

Seriously if the names for Minor Planets or other objects in the Solar System is an indication expect the new planet to be a combo breaker.

Yes, the very nature of the inferred evidence it exists means it is the dominant object in its orbit.

Planets are defined by the following three characteristics:

1. is massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity,
2. is not massive enough to cause thermonuclear fusion, and
3. has cleared its neighbouring region of planetesimals.

Any single body as large as Neptune should easily fulfill all three points.

Why would we grandfather Pluto into a list of something that it isn't? Why do people even care that Pluto is a dwarf planet (I refuse to say "now" because it's always been a dwarf planet, regardless of what we called it)?

Being a dwarf planet isn't a good thing or a bad thing. It's just a thing. Why do people get so butthurt? Did people in olden times get this irrationally pissed when the Sun got demoted to a mere star?
>>
>>7803374

>it's always been a dwarf planet

The category "dwarf planet" didn't even exist until a few years ago. People get pissed off because people aren't used to having a small academy tell them what words they can and can't use for things as if a vote held by a committee is a matter of unquestionable scientific fact.

How do you cope with the fact that "continent" has no clear definition?

If we suddenly realized there were potentially hundreds of continents by the existing accepted definition, we would redefine the word to be more specific.

>>
>>7801954
Man, they knew about that shit since 1984, they called it 'Nemesis' and they thought it was a brown dwarf on a long, eccentric orbit.

So every few centuries, Nemesis, an aborted bullshit-half star, slightly larger than Jupiter swings close to the solar system, still way out, but it's gravity flashes through the Oort cloud and slings a fuck-ton of rocky, icy, shitty, bullshit sub-planets toward the sun.

That's why everything dies on Earth every few thousand years. Cause of the orbit of that gravity body in the oort cloud.

They discredited that theory, ignored it, now they want to talk about it again since some fucking shit is effecting the orbits of objects out there and now after they demoted Pluto, they want to call this Oort cloud eccentric a fucking planet.

A brown dwarf and something like planet 9 are the same size. Maybe a brown dwarf would be slightly more luminous? As if our optics could even detect a red dwarf at those distances. Saying they detected something like this because of gravity a forever a fucking ago.

Brown dwarfs are ≥ Jupiter's size and glow in infrared.

>In Greek mythology, Plouto (Πλουτώ) or Pluto was a nymph and the mother of Tantalus by Zeus. Her parents were Oceanus and Tethys (thus making Plouto one of the 3000 Oceanids) or Himas, a Lydian that was otherwise unknown. Plouto was said to be married to Tmolus, the stepfather of Tantalus.

I know that someone somewhere is ready to unironically argue the above, but even they would be obliged to acknowledge the absurdity, in a serious conversation. What's actually going on is that since the ancient world is at such a remove from us, and yet we have records of the great things that were done, we just have much bigger nostalgia-goggles. A youtube commenter might as well lament that they were born in the wrong millennium, rather than decade.

If you were as good as you say you were, i don't think for a second that you would be browsing 4chan. This is mostly a place for jobless neckbeards that still live with their parents, and nerdy high school kids that don't have any friends. It really isn't the place for highly-trained assassins to be hanging out in their spare time. Even if it was, something far worse than a troll being mean to you probably would have set you off a long time ago. What about the slew of gore and child pornography that gets posted here on a regular basis? Isn't that something that deserves a person being hunted down and made to regret their actions? Yeah, you're just not the 4chan type. Sure, there's a wide variety of people that browse here, but you're far from the core demographic if you are who you say you are (which isn't the case). Even if it were true that you're an incredibly talented soldier, I think all the military discipline would prevent you from getting mad enough to murder some random idiot on the internet. I also doubt that even the best SEALs have a "secret network of spies across the USA". Why would all of the most expanisive Big Brother network in the world be willing to help a troubled PTSD-sufferer hunt down some random kid on the internet? That doesn't even make sense. If you're gonna try to scare somebody, make it more believable than "IM A SUPER SOLDIER HURR DURR". You might frighten a thirteen year old who doesn't know any better, but to must of us you just look like a kid with an anger problem and a very active imagination. Hopefully things will be easier for you when your puberty's over. Best of luck with that... kiddo

The bnbn (or phoenix) of Ra was that from which Atum came to be as Heh (chaos), Nun (the watery abyss), Kek (the darkness), Tenem (or Amen, meaning gloom). I am Shu, father of the gods. Atum used to send his Sole Eye seeking Me and My sister, Tefnut. I am the one who begot the Heh gods again, as Heh, Nun, Tenem, Kek. I am Shu who begot the gods.

>In ancient Roman religion and myth, Janus is the god of beginnings and transitions, and thereby of gates, doors, doorways, passages and endings.

This planet is very likely to be the last one of our system and could therefore be seen as the gateway to the rest of the galaxy. Unfortunately, this name is already taken by one of Saturn's moons.

Then anything outside the orbit of Neptune is going to be a dwarf, no matter how large, because its orbit is so large and it's pretty much impossible for number three to be true
>>
>>7809791
Not true, the planet was detected based on the orbits of numerous TNO. The definition asks more so that the planet is big enough to clear it's orbit of any object that could cross it. If an asteroid wanders through Earth's orbit, the Earth isn't temporarily demoted to being a minor planet because of that.

Am i the only one remembering that study about the origins of comets?

This is what Pluto looks like from Hubble when it was ~30 AU from us. Its probably too far for Hubble to get a good look at it, but its hard to say because it is significantly larger than Pluto, but will be much darker from less light reaching it.

Here is an article explaining why Hubble can take good pictures of far galaxies but not of Pluto.
http://www.planetary.org/blogs/emily-lakdawalla/2013/02141014-hubble-galaxy-pluto.html

The James Webb Telescope, 30 Meter Telescope, Giant Magellan Telescope or European Extremely Large Telescope will do better. When they are completed.

If by some chance Planet 9 has a bunch of KBO/TNO as moons, we should name it Diana.

"Diana was the goddess of the hunt, the moon and childbirth, being associated with wild animals and woodland, and having the power to talk to and control animals."

Ideally Pluto should have been named Diana, but too late for that now I guess. Janus is another good one, also Terminus.

Isn't "discovered" a bit much?
From what I've read its just a hypothesis to explain the orbits of other stuff in our solar system? Such an hypothesis gave us Neptune, but the same hypothesis was wrong with regards to Pluto and the like.
Just because some of the math ads up, doesn't mean that its confirmed. Though it would be pretty sweet to name it Nemesis just to fuck with people if it does exist.

>Lowell proposed the Planet X hypothesis to explain apparent discrepancies in the orbits of the giant planets, particularly Uranus and Neptune,[1] speculating that the gravity of a large unseen ninth planet could have perturbed Uranus enough to account for the irregularities

>Clyde Tombaugh's discovery of Pluto in 1930 appeared to validate Lowell's hypothesis, and Pluto was officially named the ninth planet. In 1978, Pluto was conclusively determined to be too small for its gravity to affect the giant planets, resulting in a brief search for a tenth planet. The search was largely abandoned in the early 1990s, when a study of measurements made by the Voyager 2 spacecraft found that the irregularities observed in Uranus's orbit were due to a slight overestimation of Neptune's mass.

The orbits of those 6 objects cannot be explained by a slight miscalculation of Neptune's mass.

Highly elliptical orbit so it depends where it is. Closest approach is estimated at 200 AU, farthest at 1200 AU. Pluto by comparison is between 30 and 50 AU. So this thing is way the fuck out. You'd need some sort of meme drive to get there in a sensible time.

Its pretty much a given that Neptune's is bigger than Uranus because it has more mass despite both smaller and warmer.

>could be
Of the classes of planets that we currently know of (there's undoubtedly going to be some really weird outlier planets that qualify neither as terrestial nor gasgiant), terrestials definitely have the most potential to be interesting, since gas giants are just gas.

The kind of terrestial planet that I'm interested in seeing is one that has increased in volume while the material density has stayed the same throughout development, forcing voids to form in the structure of it; so if the planet increases in volume by 10%, then 1/11th of the planet's volume will be cave systems; though it'd possibly take some erosion for them to be in a network.
Not sure what could cause such a volume increase though. If the planet had a huge amount of water permeating the rock, and that water eventually froze, that could cause such a thing to happen to a planet that wasn't too large: But then the caves would be clogged with ice.

It wouldn't really bother me if it weren't for the fact that we've already chosen this theme. To name it something else at this point is akin to producing a series of books with matching spines, only to throw it off with the latest addition by changing up the colors and font, and moving the author's name down an inch.

It would be absolutely autistic and beyond infuriating to NOT name it after a Roman god with this much already going for the theme.
