Case made for 'ninth planet'

Apparently a Gas Giant :rofl:

American astronomers say they have strong evidence that there is a ninth planet in our Solar System orbiting far beyond even the dwarf world Pluto.

The team, from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), has no direct observations to confirm its presence just yet.

Rather, the scientists make the claim based on the way other far-flung objects are seen to move.

But if proven, the putative planet would have 10 times the mass of Earth.

The Caltech astronomers have a vague idea where it ought to be on the sky, and their work is sure to fire a campaign to try to track it down.

"There are many telescopes on the Earth that actually have a chance of being able to find it," said Dr Mike Brown.

"And I'm really hoping that as we announce this, people start a worldwide search to go find this ninth planet."
Strange swing

The group's calculations suggest the object orbits 20 times farther from the Sun on average than does the eighth - and currently outermost - planet, Neptune, which moves about 4.5 billion km from our star.

Pluto still is the ninth planet, check the rules.

The debate came to a head on August 24, 2006 with an IAU resolution that created an official definition for the term "planet". According to this resolution, there are three main conditions for an object in the Solar System to be considered a planet:

The object must be in orbit around the Sun.
The object must be massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity. More specifically, its own gravity should pull it into a shape of hydrostatic equilibrium.
It must have cleared the neighborhood around its orbit.


OK


Pluto has five known moons: Charon (the largest, with a diameter just over half that of Pluto), Styx, Nix, Kerberos, and Hydra


and ?


Pluto and Charon are sometimes considered a binary system because the barycenter of their orbits does not lie within either body.





The IAU has not formalised a definition for binary planets (dwarf or otherwise), and Charon is officially classified as a moon of Pluto

Oh, there are none. Cnuts !
