They have actually discovered a Trans Neptunian item whose orbit might be substantially impacted by the presence of a ninth planet.
The University of MI researchers say that a large rocky object, 2015 BP519, has an orbit which is tilted away from the plane on which most objects that orbit the sun lie. The object is called 2015 BP519 has an orbit around the Sun that is 35 to 862 times the radius of Earth's orbit around the Sun.
The group from the Dark Energy Study state that 2015 BP519 is the most severe Trans-Neptunian Things discovered to this day in the paper. But I would say the presence of an object like this in our solar system bolsters the case for Planet Nine'.More news: Nokia X6 5.8-inch FHD+ notched smartphone announced
Dr Konstantin Batygin said: "There are now five different lines of observational evidence pointing to the existence of Planet Nine". So, in order to reach their unexpected conclusion, the team used some computer simulation of the solar system.
Despite several doomsday prophecies involving a hidden ninth planet in our solar system, astronomers (not doomsayers) may be the ones who finally prove its existence: an global team of scientists has published new research on a remote Trans-Neptunian Object (or TNO) named 2015 BP519 that orbits the Sun with a bizarrely tilted orbit, and right now a ninth planet offers the best answer for its odd behavior.
Calculations show that give it such a sharp slope couldn't gravity any one of the eight "official" planets of the Solar system - and perhaps it is due to the influence of the mysterious Planet X. They were unable to explain how the object established such a tilted orbit until they added in a ninth planet. In October 2017, NASA released a statement predicting that Planet Nine is possibly a Super-Earth sized planet that has 10 times the mass of Earth.More news: OU's Maggie Nichols, other assault survivors to receive Arthur Ashe Courage Award
When scientists created a simulation of the solar system containing all of the known planets, they could not explain the unusual orbit pattern.
Researchers say a distant rocky object could have been pushed into orbit by the gravitational power of another planet.
Instead, astronomers have relied on tracking the movement of TNOs, which are balls of ice and dust that zoom around the outer edges of our solar system, outside the orbit of Neptune.More news: James Ransone will play adult Eddie in 'It: Chapter 2'
