A new discovery becomes a fascinating point for many where the scientists had now discovered ‘Planet Nine’. The scientists had detected a new orbiting object which found to exist beyond Neptune. They are thinking that it can be a sign of planet nine which can be 10 times more than Earth’s weight.
A new research done by the astronomers detected the rocky object beyond Neptune. This rock gets a name i.e 2015 BP519 and is being connected to the term Planet Nine. Its orbit found to be different from other existing planets in our solar system. This gives way to new theories and now the scientists thinking that this piece of rock can have over 10 times the mass of the Earth.
Its body mass is getting connected with its different orbiting objects. Th paper which has been submitted to The Astronomical Journal denoted,”We also consider the long-term orbital stability and evolutionary behaviour within the context of the Planet Nine hypothesis, and find that 2015 BP519 adds to the circumstantial evidence for the existence of this proposed new member of the solar system.”
The scientists are in search of Planet Nine since 2016 and noticed the group of distant objects moving around the Sun which is not the part of our solar system. Dabid Gerdes who is an astronomer at the University of Michigan told Quanta,”It’s not proof that Planet Nine exists. But I would say the presence of an object like this in our solar system bolsters the case for Planet Nine.”
Another astronomer at Yale who was not a part of the investigation says,”Finding a 10-Earth-mass planet in our own solar system would be a discovery of unrivalled scientific magnitude,” to Quanta.
“If you were to remove this explanation and imagine Planet Nine does not exist, then you generate more problems than you solve. All of a sudden, you have five different puzzles, and you must come up with five different theories to explain them,” he added.
