Scientists Find Evidence of a Real Ninth Planet!

Researchers from the California Institute of Technology  have found evidence of a giant planet tracing a bizarre, highly elongated orbit in the outer solar system. The newly discovered world, which the researchers have nicknamed Planet Nine, is extimated to be 10 times more massive than earth and 4 times its size. It orbits about 20 times farther from the sun on average than Neptune (which orbits the sun at an average distance of 2.8 billion miles). It would take this new planet between 10,000 and 20,000 years to make just one full orbit around the sun.
