According to NASA, this new planet is very big, 10 times the Earth and far away, 20 times farther away from the Sun than the distance from Neptune to the Sun so it will be extremely difficult to find it. Although there is not much concrete evidence to prove the existence of the 9th planet, scientists are very sure about it and hope it will help them clarify some questions about the universe.

Currently, there are 5 different results of independent research groups showing the existence of the 9th planet.

In 2016, researcher Batygin and co-author Mike Brow mentioned the strange behavior of six new objects in the Kuiper belt. The trajectories of these six objects are elliptical in the same direction, and all orbits are tilted in the same way. These two characteristics are evidence to prove the existence of the 9th planet.

Accordingly, the 6 most distant objects in the Solar System have orbit beyond Neptune. Their tilt and alignment can only be maintained by external forces.

Computer models also confirm the existence of this mysterious planet, whereby there are a number of objects with extremely large inclines in the Solar System.

According to scientists, the existence of the 9th planet is the answer to the phenomenon of planets orbiting in other planets, tilting about 6 degrees from the Sun's equator. As it turns out, the planet's distant gravity made the entire Solar System wobble in the central region, and some Kuiper belt objects have an orbit opposite to the rest of the Solar System. our.

Based on the activity of distant objects, astronomers think the new planet is a super-Earth . It is an extremely popular giant planet in the universe, but strangely these planets do not exist in our Solar System.

Most likely, the new planet coalesces in the cold regions of the Solar System for millions of years and is then pushed out, or even "captured" by other Solar Systems.

Researchers are using the Subaru telescope at the Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii, the best telescope today to continue the journey to find the ninth planet.
