Astronomers may have discovered evidence of an unseen planet in the farthest reaches of our solar system, almost 10 years after Pluto was demoted. Michael Lemonick is a writer for Scientific American, and joins CBSN to discuss this surprising find.

To say that Pluto isn't a real planet because it's a dwarf planet is like saying a dwarf human isn't a real human.

The look on the scientist's face when the guy talks about the big bang is priceless.

The Big Bang Theory pushed the planets into their current orbits?  Wow!  They have really earned their million-dollars-an-episode salaries.

The true ninth planet is still the 9th planet is still Pluto. Phillip Metzger, a lawyer, has restored it to planet status. You must now refer to any other planet by the number 10.

As soon as I heard the male anchor give his whacked out version of the big bang, I scrolled down to see the comments. They did not disappoint lol.

WOW. So I guess I owe all of those Nibiru/Planet X theorists an apology. Planet X is confirmed now.

Also last week for 4nights in a row we both witnessed the moon being really low and 10 times the size that it should be it lit up our whole yard for it was quite bright but what was really interesting and yet it was quite eerie was the pace in which it moved from one side of our yard across to the other side of our yard then nothing moon was gone elsewhere I presume weird can someone explain why or even what

The anchor everyone is going on about is, in my experience, above average intelligence. The everyday people I come across are even dumber.

BRING PLUTO, Iris, Ceres, etc to a more appropiate list of planets

Where did the dust particles come from. The universe is expanding faster than the speed of light. Did they count for that

I remember seeing a video about "planet x" and how it was crashing down to earth on october 18, 2018. Being my dumb younger self, i believed it, and was very scared. After the 18th, i was glad it wasn't real.
