Does Planet 9 Exist?

  • Published: 13 September 2019
  • A planet has been predicted to orbit the sun with a period of 10,000 years, a mass 5x that of Earth on a highly elliptical and inclined orbit. What evidence supports the existence of such a strange object at the edge of our solar system?

    I had heard about Planet 9 for a long time but I wondered what sort of evidence could support the bold claim: a planet at the very limits of our ability to detect one, so far out that its period is over 60 times that of Neptune. The planet 9 hypothesis helps explain clustering of orbits of distant Kuiper belt objects. It also explains how some of these objects have highly inclined orbits - up to 90 degrees relative to the plane of the solar system. Some are orbiting in reverse. Plus their orbits are removed from the orbit of Neptune, the logical option for a body that could have ejected them out so far. The fact that the perihelion is so far out suggests another source of gravity was essential for their peculiar orbits.

    Посмотрел ВДудя и вернулся проверить, не забыл ли я поставить лайк этому видео. И, таки, забыл. Исправляюсь. Как изменить свою уёбищную сущность и стать хотя бы отдалённо напоминающим активного разносторонне увлечённого человека, вроде Батыгина? Может сменить фамилию на Потугин для начала?

                      The only veritasium video i have thumbs down.

                      If a person has to manipulate the data to create their field of study, their field of study should be private - taking money to fulfill this rather than something useful is unethical.

                      I'm all for "hey, let's see if there's something there," but not for giving a platform to a charlatan.

                      This is pseudoscience to the extreme.

                      Please show me your 99.9% proof -_-

                            NASA did the math, and apparently the equations strongly suggest a -ninth- , I mean tenth plant. Yes, Pluto is the ninth planet. There are even bodies out there that show a disruption in their orbits because of another source of gravity.

                                            Planet 9 is Pluto... this planet may be 10, but if it does exist we should be able to track it, with some past evidence.

                                              Pluto is a real Panet, the not a Dwarf. It has everything needed, for more life than any other except for Earth.

                                                    Planet 9 DOES exist.

                                                    It is called, "Pluto".

                                                      We needed someone to comment on those statistics. The confidence level is 2.6 sigma. That means the probability of it existing is betwen 95% and 99.7%. To consider it real we would need above 99.7% confidence. It's way more likely to be real then not but we still cant be sure.

                                                        Essentially 9th finding is about how shortsighted are our vision of our own solar system. Pluto now has a status of a planet, after The increasing space exploration ( with more observatories in orbit, our in other bodies of the solar system ) will overcome this problem.

                                                                      Maybe they already know where, when and how it will effect humanity, but they are slowly bringing it out the see how the ''slaves'' will react to it and then decide what to do. It's just like they are getting us ready to get used to the first transhuman that will be there in the near futher. All over the west we see the rice of gender neutral people, boys in dresses and girls in boys clothes, just to make the impact that transhumanism will have, less uncomfortable. Also hollywood is doing their part. And the powerfull media that has us all under a spell.

                                                                      It's time that we humans set us apart from all life on this planet by stop behaving like herds. In some sense we are no different from animals. It's time for the awakening to get to the next level of consciousness. By our own power and not by artificial intelligence. It will make us less human. The human mind can be trained to be so powerfull and wise, we can not imagine. Now we are just like the herds in the animal kingdom walking towards and using our own technology like chickens without a head. To be smart is one thing, but to be wise is another. Smart people bring us technology, wise people use it the correct way. To be wise and willing to react by it, is going against the mainstream. Wise people die and all is left are the quotes on internet. Nobody is doing something.

                                                                      When people are getting wiser they are getting older. And the human lifespan is just to short to exploit it at it's highest potential. It's just a fact that the overall human is not wise enough to see and above all care about the consequences of their actions. Maybe artificial intelligence can help us life longer and exploit wisdom or even better jump start our wisdom at birth, without losing what makes us human.

It also the planet that orbit around the sun. They will say its dwarf planet and yes. But the name dwarf planet is just given also by the humans. So pluto is the planet for me.
