10th Planet

By Dave

I thought they already found a 10th planet in our solar system, but it seems I am wrong, as most popular news site are reporting a mass, larger than Pluto in our solar system as the tenth planet.

David Rabinowitz told the BBC News website: “It has been a remarkable day and a remarkable year. 2003 UB313 is probably larger than Pluto. It is fainter than Pluto, but three times farther away.

“Brought to the same distance from the Sun as Pluto, it would be brighter. So today the world knows that Pluto is not unique. There are other Plutos, just farther out in the solar system where they are a little harder to find.”

Does it really matter? And what do you think they should name it? Its current name is 2003 UB313.
