Ninth Planet in our Solar System does exist, believes NASA

A severe shortage of plutonium-238 shown here could force NASA to ax its deep space exploration program

Researchers do not have much evidence to prove it an official planet in solar system.

For last several years astrophysicists have been debating about the existence of a ninth planet and it has become a matter of great speculation.

As per a NASA report, a ninth planet might be there on the outer edges of our solar system. At first, there were nine planets, and then Pluto was excluded from planet category.

Experts argue that the presence of a ninth planet explains the principles of relations between space objects in the galaxy and the distribution of the existing planets in the Solar system.

The mysterious planet is estimated to be about 10 times massive than planet earth and probably 20 times further from the sun than the eighth planet Neptune.

"Now there are five different observation lines suggesting the existence of Planet Nine", said Dr Konstantin Batygin, a planetary astrophysicist at Caltech in Pasadena, whose team is closing in on finding Planet Nine, as quoted by the Daily Mail, Friday (10/13/2017). But all the other eight planets of our solar system are tilted six degrees away from the Sun's equator.

Another clue comes from the trans-Neptunian objects that form the Kuiper Belt - a cloud of small, distant objects that orbit the sun in an awkward directions, the most distant of which seem to orbit a common point without an obvious reason. One of the graduates from Caltech said that eight planets in our solar system could have been titled by planet nine for the past 4.5 billion years.

"No other model can explain the weirdness of these high- inclination orbits", Batygin said. And if this explanation is removed and it is imagined that planet nine does not exist, it will generate more problems than solutions. All of a sudden, you have five puzzles and you must come up with five theories... "It turns out that Planet Nine provides a natural avenue for their generation. These things have been twisted out of the solar system plane with help from planet nine and then scattered inward by Neptune", said Batygin. Astronomers are now using a telescope in Hawaii to try and find it.
