Why Just the ninth planet in the Solar system, according to the International astronomical Union (IAU), there are eight planets. Pluto the IAU decision in 2006 is no longer considered a planet by going to the class of dwarf planets because it is not dominant in its space orbit. According to scientists, the Solar system may be over two thousand dwarf planets. However, the definition of a planet as a dwarf is still a matter of controversy. In particular, a crucial role may play the size of a celestial body.

Therefore, to say that discovered ninth planet in the Solar system very early.”

The scientist reminded that beyond the orbit of distant planets in the Solar system has many objects that are studied by astronomers. Among them was discovered a new heavenly body, which claims the title of planet in the Solar system.

According to the authors, it is a gas giant with a mass of 5-10 times the mass of the Earth. This planet supposedly moves in an elliptical orbit, making a complete revolution around the Sun for 10-20 thousand years. According to the calculations of astronomers to confirm the planet’s existence by observation through the telescope, will take several years.

Scientists in the US claim to have discovered a ninth planet in the Solar system

Solenopsidini the International astronomical Union (IAU), a full-fledged planet must meet several requirements: to revolve around the star, not to be a satellite of another planet, to have

This opinion was expressed by TASS Board member of the Association of planetariums of Russia, Director of the Ufa planetarium Anatoly Denisov.

Anatoly Denisov, a member of the Association of planetariums of Russia: “Perhaps

5 years plus or minus two years – the term is realistic for the detection of suspected ninth planet”.

Astronomers reported the discovery of a mysterious “planet x”. She is 41 billion miles from the Sun and is larger than the size of the Earth ten times.

About the discovery of the mysterious planet, which will be the ninth or tenth (if you consider Pluto a planet) planet of the Solar system was reported by Russian astronomer Konstantin Batygin and American researcher Michael brown.

They were able to calculate the planet through mathematical modeling and computer simulation. Directly the astronomers the object was not observed, since one full turn around the sun “planet x” out of ten to 20 thousand earth years.

Planet, which initially lives in the same region of the Solar system, and Uranus and Neptune, can be “switched” from the region and move on to a much wider and elliptic orbit.

– That is this planet still can not overcome the Sun’s gravity, it is not thrown out into interstellar space, but is on a very elliptical orbit?

– Yes. There’s one small hitch here. It lies in the fact that the young Solar system, most likely, lived in a kind of bunch of stars.
