Curious Tilt of the Sun Traced to Undiscovered Planet
“Planet Nine—the undiscovered planet at the edge of the solar system that was predicted by the work of Caltech's Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown in January 2016—appears to be responsible for the unusual tilt of the sun, according to a new study.”

Scientists Find Hints Of A Giant, Hidden Planet In Our Solar System
“The astronomer whose work helped kick Pluto out of the pantheon of planets says he has good reason to believe there's an undiscovered planet bigger than Earth lurking in the distant reaches of our solar system.”

Planet Nine may be responsible for tilting the Sun
“Caltech astronomer Michael Brown and theoretical astrophysicist Konstantin Batygin found evidence for a possible 10 Earth mass planet that may be tilting long-orbiting dwarf planets on their sides and shepherding them into clusters far past the orbit of Neptune in highly eccentric orbits.”

It's okay, Pluto. I'm not a planet either.

How come we know about planets millions of light years away from Earth yet we only just found (and possibly didn't) a new planet in our own solar system?

Born too late to explore the world.
Born too early to explore the universe.
Born just in time to witness knowledge-altering Planet 9 being discovered.

I remember back in the 80s reading an article about "Planet X" or the "tenth" planet which was supposed to be affecting the orbits of Uranus and Neptune.  Supposedly, it was incredibly large and incredibly far away.  So all this is really nothing new.

So... Does this mean we're getting a new Planet in Warframe?

Last time I was this early, Pluto was planet number 9

How does one go about measuring the "tilt" of our sun?

I thought Pluto had already been discovered?! Oh, that's right. So-called dwarf planets aren't planets, just like dwarf people aren't people.

I say we call it Pluto, that way Pluto is a planet again.

Good video apart from the '3 years to image' part, what Caltech actually said was, "We are pretty convinced we will find & image Planet 9 by next winter", 12 months time. :)

Well now, given that we've been observing our own solar system for _centuries_ but we're only _now_ discovering Planet 9, I think we can be absolutely _certain_ there are more planets out there.

If they named it 'Planet X' this would be kind of cool. Not because i buy into this Nibiru quackery but because you can read this as Planet 10, which would be a subtle nod to Pluto. :)

They'll release the info just when it's about to hit and they're all tucked in their spaceships.

Nasa 1980s: There might be another planet out there
Nasa 2000s: There is no other planet out there and those that believe there is are conspiracy nuts
Nasa now: There might be another planet out there
Me:... The hell nasa?
