Possibility of a Ninth Planet

Scientists and researchers have come together at the California Institute of Technology to discover the possibility of an actual ninth planet. “Planet Nine” as researchers have nicknamed it, is ten times more massive than Earth. This planet also “Orbits about 20 times farther from the sun than Neptune,” said a researcher to CNN. One orbit around the sun would take anywhere from 10,000 to 20,000 Earth years to complete. Some researchers have not yet seen the planet, but came to the conclusion that is actually there. They inferred this from the orbit of a field of icy objects and debris beyond Neptune.  These space objects had orbits that pointed the same way. This means that Planet Nine  has enough gravity to make such orbits. In conclusion, if the Ninth Planet does exist we will surely hear more about it soon.
