I hear the sound of a paradigm shifting… The heliocentric model of what a “solar system” actually is has not served us well in recent years.
Fancy of all the things to get it right, Space:1999 and its space fantasy was right into the ETNOs. Once again I’m forced to ask what Gerry Anderson knew, and how he knew it? To have your mind really blown, ignore the fashions and really watch and analyse his amazing series UFO
“Planet X” might actually exist — and so might “Planet Y.”
At least two planets larger than Earth likely lurk in the dark depths of space far beyond Pluto, just waiting to be discovered, a new analysis of the orbits of “extreme trans-Neptunian objects” (ETNOs) suggests.
Researchers studied 13 ETNOs — frigid bodies such as the dwarf planet Sedna that cruise around the sun at great distances in elliptical paths.
Theory predicts a certain set of details for ETNO orbits, study team members said. For example, they should have a semi-major axis, or average distance from the sun, of about 150 astronomical units (AU). (1 AU is the distance from Earth to the sun — roughly 93 million miles, or 150 million kilometers.) These orbits should also have an inclination, relative to the plane of the solar system, of almost 0 degrees, among other characteristics.
But the actual orbits…
