No, but thanks for that link. I do like the NASA site too though.DarkNetworks said:Yeah just read about that before i log in to Macrumors...pretty interesting...
btw, i was wondering if there is any website anyone know that is related to space? News and stuffs... Besides NASA, i know one website, http://www.spaceflightnow.com/ that i check out for news...any recomendations?
Imagine - 15, 20, 100 planets? Amazing, if true.Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research Institute and leader of NASA's New Horizons mission to Pluto, predicted in the early 1990s that there would be 1,000 Plutos out there. He has also contended, based on computer modeling, that there should be Mars-sized worlds hidden in the far corners of our solar system and even possibly other worlds as large as Earth.
That would be amazing...and all balls of ice. You could set up a nice business there fueling ships in and out of the solar system with all that Hydrogenemw said:

Given that there are many of these small icy bodies, it wouldn't be a far stretch to find larger objects. And in planet formation theories, most things you'll find that far from the sun are going to be dusty ice balls.
And its at a distance of 97 AU (97 times the distance from the Sun to Earth) and at a 45° angle to the plane of the ecliptic. That's really odd.Stern stopped short of calling it one of the greatest discoveries in astronomy, however, because he sees it as just one more of many findings of objects in this size range. Last year, for example, Brown's team found Sedna, which is about three-fourths as large as Pluto. Others include 2004 DW and Quaoar.
whoa, my bad. I a did a search on 10th planet, and then scrolled down current events and community discussion.... yet I still missed it.stubeeef said:good discussion, although my thread in current events was 6 hours earlier.
I think this is cool just to hear what names they come up with!
