Difficult to find this story - I was looking for the headline "New planet found - will house prices fall?"

(for those readers not familiar with the Daily Mail, it seems obsessed with only two things - house prices and immigrants)

Pluto is going to be soooo pissed off about this.

(I am a member of the facebook group 'Don't worry Pluto I'm not a planet either').

Interested to know what elements could still be a gas that far, and therefore cold, from the sun? I always thort that it was all rock and ice in the oort cloud

Maybe Saturn just went for a wee wander, and they have just discovered it again....
Good to see old Planet X resurfacing again.
It's been a while.
That's a lo-ong way out though......

what you found, by using a super big ground bassed telelscope and camers that records all data, is somthing that is not any bigger than pluto but is another object that orits the sun even more than pluto does, also have you seen that pluto has a moon of it's own which is 3/4th the same size?

yes, the minor planet of pluto dose has a moon that is about 3/4th its size. using one of the BIG telescopes and recording data from photos taken over 2 years of time have shown a pluto sized object in solar orbit and it's another 2million miles out past pluto. they are still watching for anything eles out that way.

If Pluto isn't a planet, does mean it's moon isn't a moon either?

Maybe Pluto is a planetoid with a moonoid?

from what I have read in Astonomy and seen in programs on the T.V. Pluto is now a mini-planrt but it was it's own moon.

as they have been using the 200inch scope to see Pluto and then it is just a speck, they have been using the Hubble to get any data about the mini plant of Pluto. It has taken even the space scope some 10 or more orbits to see anything, but that have sported the moon and it is about the same size of Pluto.

You forgot one of their other obsessions, which would turn the headline into:

NEW PLANET FOUND: ALIEN IMMIGRANTS CAUSE HOUSE PRICES TO FALL AND GIVE YOU CANCER!
