  • “Brown now thinks he was wrong. Today, in The Astronomical Journal, Brown and his colleague Konstantin Batygin have published a paper with the title “Evidence for a Distant Giant Planet in the Solar System,” in which they make a persuasive case that there actually is a ninth planet out there. They have not observed it directly, only inferred its presence from the behavior of a handful of faraway objects, which have been caught in its gravitational sway. After more than a year of watching, calculating, and conducting computer simulations, Brown and Batygin write, “We motivate the existence of a distant, eccentric perturber.””
