“The Goblin” is the newest planet to our solar system
Astronomers from the United States have found a small planet in the outer glaciers of our solar system.
The planet, dubbed “The Goblin” is about 80 times the distance between the Earth and the Sun, making its orbit around the sun far beyond Pluto’s orbit.
The explorers of the planet, under the supervision of Scott Sheppard of the Carnegie Endowment, described their discovery in a specialized article handed to the editorial board of Astronomical Journal, an astrophysical research journal, which is due to be published at the earliest opportunity.
Scientists have promised this planet a potential impact of the virtual planet X, which researchers believe exists in the remote regions of our solar system.
Sheppard and his colleagues Chad Troylo of the University of Northern Arizona and David Thuleen of the University of Hawaii have already spotted the body of the body that the researchers have found in 2015, but it took three years of monitoring to determine its course.
According to researchers, this small planet never approaches the sun at less than 65 astronomical units.
The astronomical unit equates the distance between the earth and the sun. The orbital orbit of the planet around the sun reaches 2,300 astronomical units out of space.
For comparison, the dwarf planet Pluto orbits the Sun at about 30 to 50 astronomical units.
The planet’s diameter is about 300 km, which is likely to be classified as dwarf planets.
The researchers believe that there is a larger planet dwarf planets discovered in the last few years and the Elf planet, has not been discovered yet affects the attractiveness.
Scientists were looking for this planet when they encountered this planet X, “these distant celestial bodies like the bread crumbs that lead us to Planet X,” Sheppard explained. “The more we know about these objects, the more we know about the outer solar system and the planet Another potential we know it affects the course of its rotation. It is a discovery that will redefine our information about the evolution of our solar system. “
