For his new research, Gomes studied the orbits of 92 Kuiper belt objects, then compared the results to computer models that showed how the bodies should be distributed, with and without an additional “Planet X.”

If there’s no distant world affecting the distant objects, Gomes concludes, the models don’t produce the highly elongated orbits he observed for six of the objects.

My mistake, only posted once before. With a terrible title I might add.

In this case I think it is quite acceptable to have 2 separate threads on this.

A discussion about Nibiru in the Modern Mysteries, New Age and 2012 forum is likely to follow a very different path from a discussion.about an unknown planet at the edge of the solar system in the Astronomy and Astrophysics forum.

Astronomer insists there is a Planet X four times the size of Earth lurking at the edge of our solar system

The evidence for 'Planet X' - the mysterious hypothesised planet on the edge of our solar system - has taken a new turn thanks to the mathematics of a noted astronomer.

Rodney Gomes, an astronomer at the National Observatory of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, says the irregular orbits of small icy bodies beyond Neptune imply that a planet four times the size of Earth is swirling around our sun in the fringes of the solar system.

Earlier this month, at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Timberline Lodge, Ore., Rodney Gomes, an astronomer from the National Observatory of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, announced the results of his simulation of a region beyond Pluto known as the "scattered disk," suggesting the presence of an as yet to be discovered massive world.
