There’s no Planet X !!

The amazing theory which keeps the researcher’s and the audience’s hearts connected just turned dead!!

The incredible theory of invisible planet 9 (planet X) keeps everyone hooked at the Kuiper belt for years until a team of researchers came to reexamine and exclaim that there’s no such thing as planet 9 at the end of the solar system.
Recent research has dealt a crash to the idea that a huge planet that has never been seen by human eyes could be roaming unseen at the verge of our solar system.
Wobbles in the orbits of objects at the perimeter of our solar system have directed scientists to argue the existence of a mysterious unseen ‘Planet Nine’ for years.
Several researchers believe there is a planet between five and 10 times the mass of Earth at the external edges of our solar system, where it’s very hard for space telescopes to spot.
But University of Michigan scientists now think the evidence for Planet Nine might be incorrect – and the planet could be a misconception.
The team, led by Kevin Napier, has uploaded a paper to arXiv for counterpart review.
The research suggests that rather than ‘wobbles’ in space rock orbits indicating a gigantic planet, people have brought a mistaken conclusion from a small number of rocks.
The researchers analysed the orbits of 14 space rocks excavated by previous research.
A handful of the rocks out there – extreme trans-Neptunian Objects (ETNOs) – have distinctly unusual orbits, which steered some scientists to assume there’s a planet out there.
Professor Konstantin Batygin and colleagues published a paper in 2016 indicating the existence of Planet Nine, and fresh space rocks found since that point has appeared to confirm their opinions.
The University of Michigan team said that instead there was considerable selection preference due to the way ETNOs are found.
The researchers wrote in their paper: “Because ETNOs pursue highly elliptical orbits, and their radiance decreases like 1/r4, they are nearly always discovered within a few decades of perihelion.

“Also, telescopic surveys examine a limited area of the sky, at specific times of the year, to a restricted depth. These fallouts result in significant selection bias.”
To analyse the findings of the three last surveys, the researchers mimicked detections of a larger community of space rocks.
They wrote: “In importance, survey simulator mimics observations of a sample community of Solar System bodies by using an analysis’s pointing record, depth, and tracking measures.

“This enables for the calculation of a survey’s sample purpose for a given population, which allows us to consider it for bias, and thus comprehend the true underlying populations.”

Instead of indicating the existence of a large, rocky planet, the new results imply there is nothing out there at all, the investigators say, saying that they, “thus deduce that this sample provides no information for angular clustering”.
