Astronomers Say Two Unknown Planets May Lurk Beyond Pluto


Cool stuff, the kind of thing I've hoped for since I was knee high to a grasshopper.

Quote
At least two planets larger than Earth likely lurk in the dark depths of space far beyond Pluto, just waiting to be discovered, a new analysis of the orbits of "extreme trans-Neptunian objects" (ETNOs) suggests.

Hmmm. Plenty more Pluto size objects but Earth size is unlikely I reckon.

Someone doing the Maths and working out error of margins of current tech. Anyone want to bet?

I have to agree with you, Snowy. If there's something out there larger than Earth, it's likely to be a VERY long way out, maybe even as far as the Oort Cloud.
