The "Planet Nine" Of The Solar System Could Be a Very Special Type Of Black Hole

The black holes primordial (PBH) are objects that have not yet been confirmed, but that scientists have widely theorized about their existence, defining them as formations at the beginning of the Universe and that would make up to 80% of the Cosmos that is not can watch.


Now, a new idea involves PBH. It is a theory published by Jakub Scholtz Y James Unwin of the Cornell University in arXiv magazine – which does not have peer review – in which it is postulated that the coveted "Planet Nine" (or Planet X, as it has also been called) would really be one of these objects.

The existence of this training has been tried to explain through various mechanisms, despite never having been observed. But nevertheless, its existence remains firm due to the orbits that maintain six elements of the Kuiper Belt, the grouping of frozen objects at the limit of the Solar System, are tilted in a special way.

Thus, the theory of Scholtz and Unwin tries to explain how these movements occur. "Once you start thinking about these exotic objects, such as primordial black holes, you can see things differently," explains Gizmodo Unwin.

According to previous calculations, specifically those obtained in a study conducted in 2016 that involved mathematical models, it determined that – whatever the Planet Nine was – it should have a mass ten times higher than that of the Earth to achieve the effect observed in these six elements of ice around the sun.

It is presumed that this object would orbit our star at a distance of approximately 20 times more than Neptune and take between 10 and 20 years to complete a return to the Sun.
