Does Planet 9 Exist?

A planet has been forecasted to orbit the sun with a period of 10,000 years, a mass 5x that of Earth on a very elliptical and inclined orbit. What proof supports the existence of such an irregular object at the verge of our sun system?

I had heard about Planet 9 for a long while but I wondered what kind of proof could support the bold claim: a planet at the really limits of our capability to detect one, thus far out that its period is over 60 times that of Neptune. The planet 9 theory helps justify clustering of orbits of faraway Kuiper belt items. It in addition clarifies how some of these items have very inclined orbits – up to 90 degrees relative to the plane of the sun system. Some are orbiting in reverse. Plus their orbits are removed from the orbit of Neptune, the logical choice 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.

  1. Planet David Bowie is an awesome name.

  2. My house is a mess, I must also be a genius!

  3. pluto is planet 9!

  4. This may not be the scientific consensus anymore but to me Pluto is still planet nine. In my mind saying pluto isn’t a planet because it is small is akin to saying little people aren’t really people. I don’t buy the explanation scientist are giving these days which that it hasn’t cleared is orbit of other objects. Pluto’s orbit takes it closer to the sun than neptune for 20 years out of its more than 200 earth year orbit. That means pluto is in Neptune’s orbit but Neptune is still considered a planet. Neptune and Pluto aren’t the only planets with other interplanetary bodies in their orbit. The Jupiter Trojans are two large groups of asteroids that share Jupiter’s orbit around the sun.The inner 4 planets did not clear their area of the other objects It was the massive gravity of jupiter that pulled most of the other objects out of our orbits and formed the asteroid belt. I believe the reason the IAU voted to reclassify Pluto is because other Dwarf planets had been found which are larger than pluto and they didn’t want to add too many planets.

  5. “…anomalous motion of your anus…” Too many jokes about Uranus…that’s why they are changing it’s name in 2023. It’ll be called Urectum.

  6. I’m tired of being told how amazing David Bowie was. Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Frank Zappa…there are so many people who made so much better and interesting music…Bowie just wasn’t that good.

  7. The problem with naming Planet 9 David Bowie is that then Donald Trump, Vladmir Putin, and Kim Jong-Un will get jealous and start naming whole galaxies after themselves.

    But if we could all just agree to not let that happen, then HELLLLLL YEAHHHHHHHH!!!! best idea ever.

  8. is it the one some call nibiru or something like that?

  9. I really enjoyed that you included the opposing view in this video.

  10. This video looks 3d like i could reach into my phone…
