Found new evidence of the existence of the mysterious “planet x”

Spanish experts under the leadership of Carlos de La Fuente Marcos from the Complutense University of Madrid, drew attention to the fact that many comets and asteroids beyond the orbits of Pluto and Neptune, they behave as if they were in gravitational interaction with a large cosmic body. According to scientists, this fact may serve as new evidence for the existence of the ninth planet of the solar system, or the so-called planet x.

Experts say that they discovered anomalies cannot be attributed to any inaccuracies or errors, and the most likely explanation would be the existence of large space object, located at a distance of 300-400 astronomical units from the Sun, that is 300 to 400 times farther from the sun than the Earth.

On their findings, the scientists reported in the pages of scientific editions of the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters.

For the first time the assumption of the existence of “planet X” was put forward in the beginning of last year by astronomers Michael brown and Konstantin Batygin. It is assumed that this planet should be about 10 times heavier than Earth and have a 2-4 times larger diameter than ours, and a complete revolution around the Sun to make 15-20 thousand years. Since that time hypothetically existing planet was devoted many studies, some of which seem almost conspiratorial: for example Daniel Vitmaiyer of Louisiana state University said that the mysterious space object sometimes “directed” to Earth many asteroids, provoke a mass extinction.

Directly observe “planet X”, however, still failed.

We will remind, three weeks ago, representatives of the University of Arizona Katrin Wolf and Ren Malhotra suggested that in the Solar system, there may be another celestial body, comparable in size to one of the planets. According to experts, the object, diameter and mass, like Mars, is located in the Kuiper belt, that is 50 times farther from the Sun than the Earth.
