Planet Nine is Still a Theory says NASA

  • NASA says that Planet Nine is still a Theoretical Concept

NASA has said that planet nine is still just a theoretical concept. Nothing can be said with surety about this hypothetical body in space.

There is a lot in the news about outer space nowadays. The latest buzz is that a planet that happens to be ten times the mass of our planet earth is orbiting the sun.

It lies in the region close to Neptune. Both scientists and the public are intrigued by this idea. But the fact of the matter is that on the plane of reality, no such planet exists. 

NASA has released a video clip that cautions against such hasty judgments. No evidence is forthcoming regarding such a planet. It is very premature of people to claim that such a hypothetical planet is there, whereas in reality there is just empty space.

The director of NASA explained to that whereas it would definitely be an exciting find were such a planet to exist, the lack of proof was there to puncture the wild goose chase theories that had multiplied over the course of time. 

The theory that a planet X or Planet Nine was out there in the solar system is not new. Such conspiracy theories are the stuff out of which loser bait is made.

The name planet nine which has been given to this fake heavenly body only piques the interest of the common man even more than the average moon hoax conspiracy theory.

This planet nine is supposed to lie as far as 20 times the distance of Neptune from our star, the sun.  Thus it lies in the Kuiper Belt.

The paper which serves as the hypothetical model for this says that the presence of a huge heavenly body in te Kuiper Belt may explain the behavior of some of the objects in the region.  

Basically, the goal of the whole endeavor is to see what lies beyond the solar system. To go from the known to the unknown is where this planet nine comes in. And while the ball has been set rolling on its track, there is much research that needs to be carried out in order to corroborate the results.

Many professional astronomers have said that after scouring the skies, no proof of such a planet was found. Had it been there, it would have been detected long ago.

Since the telescopes are so powerful such a likelihood of a planet nine would be a certainty by now. But since this was just a case of smoke and mirrors, no solid entity has emerged up until now.
