Nat Geo - "Yet undiscovered planet might be orbiting at the dark fringes of the solar system."
**SNIP**

"What's intriguing, Gomes said, is that, according to his new calculations, about a half dozen Kuiper belt objects—including the remote body known as Sedna—are in strange orbits compared to where they should be, based on existing solar system models."

"Based on his calculations, Gomes thinks a Neptune-size world, about four times bigger than Earth, orbiting 140 billion miles (225 billion kilometers) away from the sun—about 1,500 times farther than Earth—would do the trick."

Hmmmm, interesting indeed. 1,500 times as far from the sun as Earth? Shouldn't be a problem anytime soon I'm guessing.

Wonder what updates they've discovered in the 9 months since this article first appeared?

They've been saying this for decades. Planet X and all that. Of course, it could be "dark matter" or some other nonsense that they make up to fill the holes in their theories.
