    Florida Tech Astrophysicist: Signs of Ninth Planet, Search Is On

    The search for planets beyond Uranus has an over 150-year-old history. By their calculations, the perturbing body would be roughly ten times the mass of Earth and orbiting the Sun at hundreds of times farther than Pluto. In fact, Brown and Batygin are not even sure of its exact location. Batygin and Brown show that a planet with 10 times the mass of the Earth in a distant eccentric orbit anti-aligned with the other six objects (orange) is required to maintain this configuration.
