They're searching for the mystery planet that will be the 9th in our solar system ever since Pluto was "demoted" from planet to "dwarf planet".

The dreaded planet X??!!!  :panic:


Find Planet Nine! NASA's Saturn Probe Helps with the Hunt

The search for a possible ninth planet, far beyond the orbit of Pluto, is being assisted by NASA's Cassini probe, which has been exploring the Saturn system for more than a decade.

The news that a possible ninth planet with a mass 10 times that of Earth could be orbiting in the dark region beyond Neptune lit up the public's imagination in January. The prediction is still just that — a hypothesis, based on modeling, not observation. But the scientists behind the idea say telescope searches of the solar system could confirm (or deny) the prediction within five years.

It's amazing how little we know, even about our own solar system which is a tiny spec even in its own galaxy.
