What does /x/ think about Planet Nine?
Have we found Yuggoth?
The danger isn't that "Planet 9" will crash into the Earth but that it will plow through the Oort Cloud and send a shower of comets into the inner solar system ... and us.
I have to wonder if, over the eons, this planet has perturbed a LOT of comets and sent them plunging into the inner solar system, accounting for some of the cataclysms that have occurred in past ages.
planet 9, if it exists, actually has an orbital period of between 1 and 2 hundred thousand years. However, It's still more likely than not that the evidence we see for it is caused by Neptune
They reckon they found this other planet about ten years ago and they called it Sedma or something like that but the retards decided it was too far away to be classed as a planet and now hardly anyone remembers it. same thing will happen with this one.
nope. any bs reason like that wont be tolerated now that every scientifically illiterate person out there is shitting themselves over a possible planet. The only way that will happen is if the again change the definition of "planet" to include distance from star, which shouldn't be necessary.
>NASA says Pluto isn't a planet anymore
>Find another body that's not Planet X
>Government is trying to wipe out the meme
would be interesting to see in the next decade or so if any of the Voyager probes manage to get near it.
They've actually been aware of this object since the early 80s from the pioneer 10 and 11 missions. They didn't want to call it a planet, but speculated it was a brown dwarf star or black hole due to disturbances in Neptune's and Uranus's orbit.
Now these two caltech guys do some math and computer models and call it a planet. Like the previous discoveries never existed. No mention of the previous discovery from what I've read.
>thinks it's mission is to go past all planets
>Somehow it can turn magically around from where it is now (far past the solar system) to return to the ninth planet
Go read a book please.
Nibiru is the 12th planet. The 10th planet is Eris.
I think OP means Pluto.
The part that pisses me off is that the same dude who discovered it is the same dude that downgraded pluto beforehand.
This way, when planet 9 is revealed, casualtards dont associate it with planet x (ten) and this guy gets credit of discovery, and basically steals it from the mayans, greeks and pretty much the whole redpilled population of the internet.
I hated that they downgraded pluto, and it only made sense when planet x was discovered.
Heres the sources too. Minor mistake voyager 2 is at about 111 au, voyager 1 is at about 133 au
Pluto is fucking tiny, it has the mass of 2/10's of a percent of earths mass. This planet based on the models should have a mass of around 10 earths. It qualifies as a planet way more than pluto does
Theres asteroids almost as big as pluto and moons bigger than pluto. If you name pluto a planet by that logic you'll need to name 1000 other objects planets as well.
