First off, Planet X has some history to it. It just didn't come out of thin air. The theory of Planet X came from scientist in the same way they found the other planets. By the certain residuals in the motion of a planet, they can determine if that planet is influence or not. If it is, then chances are it's another planet or moon causing that influence. The bigger the influence the bigger the planet. Publications were made on the theory of Planet X back in 1915 by Percival Lowell best known for his discovery's of the canals on mars. The New York time published an article in 1982 about "something" that has been tugging at Uranus and Neptune. "Some gravitational force keeps perturbing the two giant planets, causing irregularities in their orbits." The article states. The fact is that there are unaccounted-for mathematical irregularities in the orbits of our outer planet's. Astronomers are so convinced on the existence of another planet in our solar system that they officially gave it a name, Planet X. It's very important to realize that Astronomers gave it this name and it was Astronomers that have brought this information to light, not conspiracy theorists.
It all starts with the Sumerians, who were the 1st recorded civilization on earth. dwelling the earth over 6000 years ago. They invented everything that makes us a civilized human race. Writing, math, agriculture, medicine, courts, law, judges, schools, astrology and astronomy. They were even able to record the color and the distance between the planets, which at that time should not have been possible. The Sumerian people who lived in today's Iraq, created 1000's of cylindrical seals and stone tables that explain the actions of their daily lives. It's the sacred tablets I have the most interest in. They explain how and where they got their knowledge from. It states "All that we know, we were taught by the Anunnaki." The term Anunnaki means, "those who from Heaven to Earth came." Remember that this is written in stone thousands of years ago. The text goes on to explain that the Anummaki lived amongst the Sumerians and that they were living in the presents of living gods. The Anunnaki taught the Sumerians how to record in stone the location of the planet from which they came. The text explains that the Anunnaki came from the 12th planet of our solar system called Nibiru. Not to mention the significance of the number 12. It's said by some and makes sense to me, that these Anunnaki crossbred with the humans creating a smarter race of humans beings. The Sumerians AGAIN were the FIRST civilized humans to walk the earth.
Here where the mind starts to wonder. The Sumerians explained the theory of "Pangea", which was the world's one and only continent before it broke up into the seven continents we know today. The theory is still taught in our public schools that the earths crust was at one time one giant land mass. Making the planet really only half a planet at the time. The main difference between the Sumerian explanation and the scientific explanation is scientists today say this action was caused by plate tectonics and the continental drift that split Pangea apart and there is scientific proof that the continents were once connected. The Sumerians believed, that Planet X or Nibiru , collided with the earth which there for created the asteroid belt and knocked itself into orbit within our solar system creating a 3,600 year comet like cycle around the sun. 3,600 years after it came back around, the gravitational effects to earth were devastating. Part of the ice sheet in Antarctica cracked off, raising the water level of the planet instantly, creating the a great flood. The "Flood Tablet" that explains this anomaly is currently in a museum in Britain. The Sumerians text also explains how this planet exalted radiance, suggesting it could be seen during the daytime. "visible at sunrise, disappearing from view at sunset." On one of the cylindrical seals found at Nippur, it shows a group of farmers in awe as they look up at the twelfth planet depicted as a cross, acknowledging the existence of a close by planet. The text also speaks of the appearance of this planet to be "anticipated, periodic, and observable event."
There is also a new modern day theory being explored today called the Orpheus theory, that states that there was a collision with another "rogue planet" and knocked out a big chunk of earth creating the moon. Almost exactly like the story explained by the Sumerians 5000 years ago!
In 2008 a group of Japanese Astronomers at Kobe University lead by Dr. Mukai found a "AN OUTER PLANET BEYOND PLUTO AND THE ORIGIN OF THE TRANS-NEPTUNIAN BELT ARCHITECTURE" The research was published in "The Astronomical Journal" here. It states that although it's not visible yet, but will be visible within the next 9 years. Go ahead and take a look the research paper they wrote and try to decipher what ever you can. Hope your good at math. Either way this is scientific research and not some end of the world scenario. What's interesting is the fact that more and more evidence keeps popping up supporting the fact that there is another planet within our solar system. Dr. Mukai states that the planet is close to the some size of earth.
Now back in 2004 we discovered new "planetoid" bodies floating beyond Pluto like Charon and Sedna but they are nearly just large chunks of ice, not planets. What's interesting is the fact when Pluto was discovered in 1930, astronomers discovered perturbations in it's orbit even then. Leading them to believe that there was yet an undiscovered object out there effecting the planets. It's only been with the advancements of technology that we have had the tools to image and pinpoint planets beyond our solar system. Strangely, the first image of a planet orbiting a sun not in our solar system by the Hubble telescope is on a highly elliptical orbit. This has left astronomers scratching their heads on how it could be possible that a planet can extend so far out into space, while still staying within it's orbit around that sun.
Something ell's that very interesting is the fact that after mapping other solar systems in our galaxy. It been noted that almost every solar system out there is a binary system. That's a solar system with two suns. It's been concluded that it's very likely (a 90% chance) our solar system is a binary solar system as well, but our other sun is considered a failed star or Brown Dwarf. Some say that it's going to come close to earth and bring with it destruction in the form of a polar shift due to the gravitational pull changing the poles position, or bring with it asteroids from the Oort cloud that would wreak havoc upon the earth. There is also the chance that the gases on this planet will spark creating a chain reaction of fire turning it into our 2nd sun. Others state that in 2012 is when Planet X is coming for a visit and is when one of these scenario's will happen. It's apparently currently visible from the south pole with a new huge experimental telescope . There are a few "leaked" photo's on you tube that have apparently come from there showing planet X. What their really observing is the million dollar question. Are they really down there just observing galaxy clusters? I understand that space exploration is important, but I guess that for me observing galaxy cluster just isn't enough reason to go through the extant and money that it took to build these things. Take a look at these important short video's about what some scholars have to say.
Lastly, I leave you with an article from the Washington Post front page of 1983:
Washington Post: Mystery Heavenly Body Discovered, a front page story
A heavenly body possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this solar system has been found in the direction of the constellation Orion by an orbiting telescope aboard the U.S. infrared astronomical satellite. So mysterious is the object that astronomers do not know if it is a planet, a giant comet, a nearby "protostar" that never got hot enough to become a star, a distant galaxy so young that it is still in the process of forming its first stars or a galaxy so shrouded in dust that none of the light cast by its stars ever gets through. "All I can tell you is that we don't know what it is," Dr. Gerry Neugebauer, IRAS chief scientist for California's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and director of the Palomar Observatory for the California Institute of Technology said in an interview.
The most fascinating explanation of this mystery body, which is so cold it casts no light and has never been seen by optical telescopes on Earth or in space, is that it is a giant gaseous planet, as large as Jupiter and as close to Earth as 50 billion miles. While that may seem like a great distance in earthbound terms, it is a stone's throw in cosmological terms, so close in fact that it would be the nearest heavenly body to Earth beyond the outermost planet Pluto. "If it is really that close, it would be a part of our solar system," said Dr. James Houck of Cornell University's Center for Radio Physics and Space Research and a member of the IRAS science team. "If it is that close, I don't know how the world's planetary scientists would even begin to classify it."
The mystery body was seen twice by the infrared satellite as it scanned the northern sky from last January to November, when the satellite ran out of the super cold helium that allowed its telescope to see the coldest bodies in the heavens. The second observation took place six months after the first and suggested the mystery body had not moved from its spot in the sky near the western edge of the constellation Orion in that time. "This suggests it's not a comet because a comet would not be as large as the one we've observed and a comet would probably have moved," Houck said. "A planet may have moved if it were as close as 50 billion miles but it could still be a more distant planet and not have moved in six months time.
Whatever it is, Houck said, the mystery body is so cold its temperature is no more than 40 degrees above "absolute" zero, which is 459 degrees Fahrenheit below zero. The telescope aboard IRAS is cooled so low and is so sensitive it can "see" objects in the heavens that are only 20 degrees above absolute zero. When IRAS scientists first saw the mystery body and calculated that it could be as close as 50 billion miles, there was some speculation that it might be moving toward Earth. "It's not incoming mail," Cal Tech's Neugebauer said. "I want to douse that idea with as much cold water as I can."
This is the last time Planet X has ever been spoken of from a major media source. There was never a follow up article, ever. Attain your mind, and decide for yourself.
