The 9th planet exists!

Caltech_16In corridors, the modeling triumph: Konstantin Batygin (USA) and Mike Brown (USA) predicted the 9th planet existence through mathematical modeling and computer simulations. They described their work in the current issue of the Astronomical Journal, but the discovery has become more popular, thanks to the publication on the web-site Caltech, which belongs to the California Institute of Technology. We wonder how they will name the new planet? To our students: please pay your attention to the extremely complicated spatial formation of orbits, which the scientists were able to visualize!  More…
