Planet Nine must exist

It is now considered one of the solar system's five known dwarf planets.

The only danger Planet Nine poses is a self-imploding occurrence, but such an incident, if it were to occur, is over seven billion years away, The Sun reported.

His findings revealed that the objects all had elliptical orbits that point in the same direction and are tilted 30 degrees "downward" compared to the plane in which the eight planets circle the sun.

A 2016 study from the University of Warwick warns that when the planet hurtles into the solar system on its orbit around the sun, it might throw planets out into space in a pinball effect.

NASA now says there is growing evidence for the existence of the mysterious Planet Nine, also known as Planet X and often associated with the doomsday planet Nibiru.

NASA experts thus underscore the fact that the existence of the ninth planet is not fully proven, but a heavenly body does not threaten the well-being of the Earth.

"If you were to remove this explanation and imagine Planet Nine does not exist, then you actually generate more problems than you solve".

Talking about Planet Nine, Caltech professor of planetary science Konstantin Batygin said, "There have been new detections of distant Kuiper belt objects since the publication of our original paper".

Researcher's further investigation found out that there should more objects which might be titled 90 degrees to the planes of the eight planets revolve around the Sun. He stated that if this theory does not sound believable, then people would have to come up with the answers of the five pieces of evidence which could lead to further confusion. The researchers, however, do not believe that the unknown planet would cause any harm to Earth or any solar planets.

"Over long periods of time, Planet Nine will make the entire solar-system plane precess or wobble, just like a top on a table", Batygin said.

"If a planet is there, it's extremely distant and will stay that way", the U.S. space agency said.

Researchers are now using the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii hoping to find Planet Nine, and hope that its detection will also shed light. "We now better understand how the expanded observational dataset shaped by the gravity of Planet Nine".
