Unknown ‘Planetary Mass Object’ Responsible for the Warped Kuiper Belt (+Video)

The plane of the solar system is warped in the outer reaches of the Kuiper Belt, signaling the presence of an unknown Mars-to-Earth-mass planetary object far beyond Pluto, according to new research from the UA.


An unknown, unseen “planetary mass object” may lurk in the outer reaches of our solar system, according to new research on the orbits of minor planets, published in the Astronomical Journal. This object would be different from — and much closer than — the so-called Planet Nine, a planet whose existence yet awaits confirmation.

In the paper, Kat Volk and Renu Malhotra of the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, or LPL, present compelling evidence of a yet-to-be- discovered planetary body with a mass somewhere between that of Mars and Earth. The mysterious mass, the authors show, has given away its presence — for now — only by controlling the orbital planes of a population of space rocks known as Kuiper Belt objects, or KBOs, in the icy outskirts of the solar system.

    Research Paper
    The Knowledge Is The Mother of The Universe Matter
    - The knowledge in our mind is electromagnetic waves, you can measure by any medical device
    - This knowledge (electromagnetic waves) is movable by nature, she flies away, and leave to us her stamp, (or her empty container)
    - Which is The Matter
    - So, the whole universe is made of light, (the light is the electromagnetic waves = the knowledge)
    Let’s Explain that,
    - 2 Light Beams got coherence together.
    - From Young Experiment (Double Slit experiment), we learnt that the light coherence produces bright & dark fringes (spots)
    o The Dark spots are the distances between the planets
    o The Bright spots are the planets…
    Why we see the bright spots (light) as Matter? …….Because
    - Our mind understands the knowledge (light beam) and moves with light by the Light velocity
    - So, our velocity is = the light velocity, So there’s no difference in velocities between both, for that reason each of both sees the other as Matter
    - But the sun moves very slowly relative to the Earth (1/366), so there’s difference in velocity between the Sun & the Earth motions = C for that reason the sun is our light… Spite of the light beams are produced by the Earth motion
    Copernicus-Kepler Model Modification:
    The Earth moves with light velocity relative to the sun
