Conspiracy theories have raged ever since the early 80s when newspaper accounts said that a planet X celestial body exists somewhere beyond Earth.. In more recent times, NASA has feverishly worked to downplay any such entity.
Tonight, though, researchers are giving new life to the age old rumors.. Planet X may exist, and as NBC news reports, Planet Y may as well..
This from NBC:
At least two planets larger than Earth likely lurk in the dark depths of space far beyond Pluto, just waiting to be discovered, a new analysis of the orbits of “extreme trans-Neptunian objects” (ETNOs) suggests.
Researchers studied 13 ETNOs — frigid bodies such as the dwarf planet Sedna that cruise around the sun at great distances in elliptical paths. [Meet Our Solar System’s Dwarf Planets]
It’s interesting to note that just under one year ago, NASA announced lots of new planets–but they made sure to say there was no Planet X in the mix..
The newest news of a potential massive planet beyond Pluto is a game changer–or at least a potential if it should prove to be true..
