Caltech researchers have found evidence of a ninth planet

Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have found evidence of a  real ninth planet at the far reaches of our solar system.

The planet dubbed ‘Planet nine’ has a mass of about 10 times that of Earth and orbits 20 times farther from the sun on average than does Neptune (which orbits the sun at an average distance of 2.8 billion miles).

It would take this new planet between 10,000 and 20,000 years to make just one full orbit around the sun.
