So apparently “planet nine” is a real thing and so is the “tilted sun.” What gives? Much more than many can expect to understand and claim to know. However, whatever gives could be responsible for as much as a six-degree wobble. That means that it could be time for something to give, after all. Especially because the gravitational force of the so-called “planet nine” could be messing with both our sun and our collective lives.
So what gives? What is “Planet Nine”? What’s going on in our Milky Way? Can we fight it, or is it something we should embrace, work with, and use to our advantage? Is “Planet Nine” the fabled “Nibiru”? What gives? And what is going to change in the immediate future?
“Because Planet Nine is so massive and has an orbit tilted compared to the other planets, the solar system has no choice but to slowly twist out of alignment.”
As NBC News reports, there are a lot of things to know about Planet Nine. Indeed, if you’re part of the Planet Nine and the Tilted Sun posse, there are precisely nine things to know. However, when it comes to Planet Nine and the Tilted Sun and what gives, it’s not the quantity of things that need to be known, but the quality, reports NBC News.
First and foremost, what is Planet Nine? Well, it’s not the “Planet Formerly Known as Pluto,” that’s for sure. Rather, “Planet Nine” is no more than hypothesis and conjecture. It’s actually a hypothetical planet that “exists” in the minds of scientists as the result of a ton of number crunching and a bunch of hypotheses. So far, nobody has ever seen “Planet Nine,” nor can its existence be physically confirmed.
If it exists, Planet Nine lives well beyond Pluto. Physically, it’s likely similar to the solar system’s gaseous giants.
If Planet Nine does exist, somewhere beyond Pluto, it’s most likely a “rogue planet.” That means that the planet responsible for our “tilted sun” and solar system may have been born far elsewhere.
In fact, Planet Nine could be tilting our sun and solar system because it’s a so-called “rogue planet,” captured and stolen from a lesser solar system after ours was born.
The tilt of our solar system is a well-known fact. However, it can’t be explained. Unless a high-mass Planet Nine is working to tilt the solar system. Thanks, Planet Nine.
If the planet in question is there, it’s massive. Huge. Like, 10 times the mass of Earth. But if it’s there, hello Kuiper Belt explanation. If it’s there, Planet Nine is 30 degrees from the known planets, and it’s messing with known existence.
Oh, and Planet Nine has an elliptical orbit. Does that mean it’s still a planet? Depends on who you ask. Some would call it a dwarf planet. Due to its mass, however, some within the scientific community would label Planet Nine a “true planet,” or even something else entirely as its demonstrated over and over that the hypothetical planet’s tilt of the solar system is a legit one.
If Planet Nine does exist, and if it is still messing with the workings of the solar system, it’s likely that modern humanity is just learning the truth. It could literally take up to 20,000 years for Planet Nine to make its way around the sun.
“This would be a real ninth planet. There have only been two true planets discovered since ancient times, and this would be a third,” he said. “It’s a pretty substantial chunk of our solar system that’s still out there to be found, which is pretty exciting.”
Those two planets include Uranus and Neptune. As for the rest, we now call them “dwarfs,” if nothing else.
What do you think? Is the scientific community on the cusp of the official Planet Nine? Could the mass of Planet Nine be copious enough to have tilted the sun, or is humanity dealing with something else, something more drastic, entirely?
