Another Earth-like planet in the solar system..!?
Astronomers predict that there is another planet similar to Earth in our solar system. Scientists have said that this mysterious planet is in the region beyond Neptune in the solar system and is orbiting the Sun. This planet is said to be in the Kuiper belt, the farthest part of the solar system. The Kuiper Belt is a massive ring of interstellar matter such as dwarf planets, asteroids, carbon masses, and icy volatile elements such as methane, ammonia, etc.
The researchers said that they are predicting the existence of Earth-like planets. It is possible that a primordial planetary body could have survived as a KBP in the distant Kuiper Belt, as there were many planets in the early solar system. Planet Nine is believed to be 1.5 to 3 times the mass of Earth and about 500 astronomical units from the Sun. The Kuiper Belt also contains millions of condensed objects, known as Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) because they lie outside of Neptune. TNOs are believed to be remnants of solar system formation. Rocks contain volatile ice mixtures such as metamorphic carbon, water, and methane. "We have determined that the distant Kuiper Belt of an Earth-like planet in a far-tilt orbit can explain three basic characteristics," the researchers stated.
