Does the solar system have an enormous, darkish ninth drifting someplace far past the orbit of Neptune? 

Since 2016, many astronomers have stated it is potential, pointing to proof for a big gravity supply in deep photo voltaic area. However a brand new that this gravity supply is nothing greater than a statistical mirage, the consequence of the place within the night time sky astronomers level their telescopes. The primary bodily(CK) trace of this hypothetical Planet 9 was a gaggle of area rocks with comparable orbits that gave the impression to be clustered unusually shut collectively. These dim, distant, hard-to-spot objects  orbit past Neptune and are often known as “trans-Neptunian objects” (TNOs).
