According to an astrophysicist, not only does Planet X, aka the Ninth Planet exists lurking in the outer edges of our solar system, the elusive planet is, in fact, responsible for several mass extinctions on Earth.
Like never before, evidence is being revealed supporting the idea that Planet X, the Ninth Planet, or commonly referred by some as mythical planet ‘Nibiru’, does in fact exist, and lurks the outer edges of our solar system.
Now, an astrophysicist suggests that this ‘elusive’ planet does not only exist but is responsible for causing MASS EXTINCTIONS on our planet.
According to researchers, as Planet X orbits our sun, its titled orbit slowly changes, passing through the Kuiper Belt ever 27 million years, causing numerous comets to be knocked into the inner solar system.
Earlier this year, researchers discovered evidence supporting the existence of a mysterious, giant planet lurking the outer edges of our solar system, and ever since, scientists are desperately looking for signs that could help them confirm its existence.
However, the mystery around this elusive planet has just deepened after a US astrophysicist said that the enigmatic planet could, in fact, be responsible for numerous mass extinction on planet Earth.
This week, astronomer Mike Brown of Caltech revealed he had found more evidence supporting the existence of the mysterious planet. Brown believes that the unusual and weird movement of objects in the outer parts of the solar system is best explained by the anomalous orbit of a huge planet researchers ar referring to as planet Nine or Planet X. In the past couple of months, strong arguments have been made by researchers around the globe which believe a huge planet, unlike anything we have seen in our solar system is somewhere out there.
The giant ‘elusive’ planet is believed to sit on the edge of our solar system and is ten times more massive compared to Earth. Its exact composition remains a mystery, but scientists expect it to be similar to Neptune or Jupiter.
Now, in addition to comments from Brown, the researcher behind the initial announcement of the so-called ninth planet, Dr. Daniel Whitmire, a retired professor of astrophysics working at the University of Arkansas Department of Mathematical Sciences has concluded that this giant planet could have caused several mass extinctions on Earth.
According to Dr. Whitmire, the giant planet located on the outer edge of our solar system triggers comet showers that bombard the planets of the inner solar system. However, the theory proposed by Dr. Whitmire isn’t new, as a matter of a fact, the theory was initially proposed by Dr. Whitmire and his college John Matese in 1985 while working at the University of Louisiana.
In the research published in the journal Nature, Dr. Whitmire and colleague John Matese suggested the presence of a mysterious planet in the outskirts of our solar system, dubbed planet X.
According to the theory proposed by Dr. Whitmire, as Planet X orbits the sun, its tilted orbit slowly rotates and as the elusive planet makes its way through the Kuiper belt of comets every 27 million years, its enigmatic orbit causes comets to be knocked into the inner solar system triggering possible mass extinctions on Earth.
Dr. Whitmire firmly believes that its very likely that in the distant past, Planet X could have significantly influenced the evolution of life on our planet.
