Is there actually a new planet?

I have been lingering over my Youtube channel to see some videos from science channels. Then I found this video explaining about Planet X, or Nibiru. It said something about passing by Earth sometime in the future.

Also, my science teacher talked about this a few days ago, but these are my questions:

(1) When will Nibiru pass by us?
(2) What effects will Nibiru bring to our planet?
(3) Does Nibiru even exist?

Thank you! smile

Heard or read of Zechariah Sitchin?

Re: Is there actually a new planet?

I can answer you this: A lot of things exists, we just don't know about them. So... It is technically not a "new planet".

Uh huh... I am trying to look for pictures of the Hubble Space Telescope on this thing.

Re: Is there actually a new planet?

I doubt you will see anything revealing with shots from that device. First, you must differentiate between Planet X and Nibiru (Marduk). If you are calling it Planet X then wait around for about a century while NASA argues that it might be there or it might not. If Nibiru - Marduk, when you are old enough read Sitchin...just be careful he is not entirely truthful either.

Re: Is there actually a new planet?

Okay...

I'll still get information from this. I see a lot of speculations saying that they discovered Planet X

Re: Is there actually a new planet?

Hi;

People have been talking about X for a long time. Supposedly, an exhaustive search for it was undertaken by Tombaugh(?). As was expected he did not find it.

Re: Is there actually a new planet?

I see.

But does the X in Planet X mean as an algebraic variable or the roman numeral for 10 (i.e. Tenth Planet)

It is the Roman numeral X.

Re: Is there actually a new planet?

Uh huh.

Since we have eight planets in the solar system, what "planet" accounts for the ninth, if there could be a tenth?

Re: Is there actually a new planet?

I think they were counting Pluto as a planet, so there are nine presently.

Uh huh. Now I'll just request for this topic to be closed until such news comes by about Planet X. Thank you for the feedback! smile
