It would be a little hard to believe, but figures from almost four decades ago could tell us about the existence of the ninth planet in our solar system. Planet Nine has been the talk of scientists for some time, but so far no one has noticed. Now Michael Rowan-Robinson, a professor of astrophysics at Imperial College London, claims to have discovered Planet Nine based on 38-year-old data. This data was taken from the 1983 Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) reading, of which Robinson was a part. His claim does not mean that the planet has been discovered, but rather that it focuses on the area in the sky where a ninth planet can be found. Planet Nine was first discussed in January 2015. Two astronomers at the California Institute for Technology (Caltech) have estimated that a Neptune-sized planet orbits the Sun farther away from Pluto.

The findings of Caltech’s astronomers were based on modeling and computer simulations, not speculation. According to these calculations, the mass of Planet Nine will be about 10 times the mass of the Earth. It will orbit the Sun about 20 times farther than Neptune and will take 10,000 to 20,000 Earth years to complete one revolution.

At the same time, Rowan-Robinson shared his findings in RXV. Publish This is an open source archive for articles in physics, mathematics and computer science.

Robinson Relying on infrared data, the satellite observed 250,000 objects discovered by the satellite and divided three of them into possible Planet Nine. In the end, they decided to focus on just one thing, located in a “strange place” near the Milky Way galaxy. However, Robinson also speculates that the “thing” may be due to the “noise” of the filamentary cloud. Filamentary clouds glow due to the effect of infrared wavelength.

Caltech astronomer Mike Brown, who worked on the 2015 Planet Nine model, says Robinson’s findings could lead to a new discovery rather than a 2015 hypothesis.

Researchers believe that Planet Nine could be very difficult to detect. We may have to wait a few more years to prove it.
