UNITED STATES.- The mystery about the Planet nine which is on the edge of Solar system it is still latent. And recently a Theory which indicates that its location would not be where we all think. Therefore, a scientific team has resorted to updating the data to shed new hypotheses about this fact that undoubtedly captures people’s curiosity.
In 2016 astronomers Konstantin Batygin and Michael Brown of Caltech published an article in The Astronomical Journal where they talked about the entrance of Planet Nine where they explained that other objects reside beyond the orbit of Neptune. Thus, they are called extreme trans-Neptunian objects (ETNO) and have huge elliptical orbits and never cross closer to the Sun than Neptune does (30 astronomical units).
But in 2019 all the information was reviewed and extraordinary conclusions were reached, since they claim that they were wrong in some aspects. In the first place they detailed that the mass of the planet is five times that of the Earth and not 10 as they had defined in the beginning. “The question we asked ourselves during the height of the pandemic is another: is essential physics missing from our simulations? Through our continuous and relentless probing of the model, we have found that the answer to this question is ‘yes’, ”they revealed.
In this context, they also pointed out that derived from the long-term gravitational attraction of the orbit of Planet Nine is that the so-called objects inside the Oort Cloud evolve on time scales of no less than a billion years. Thus, they stressed that they have been slowly reinjected into the solar system but, in turn, they have wondered what happens to them.
“We have simulated this process, taking into account the disturbances of the planets canonical giants, Planet Nine, passing stars, as well as the galactic tide, and we’ve found that these re-injected objects from the inner Oort Cloud can easily blend in with the census of distant Kuiper belt objects, and even show orbital groupings. ”, The specialists concluded.
