Astronomers commenced the most distant body in the Solar system

Астрономы окрыли самое далекое тело Солнечной системы

Open the most distant body in the Solar system

Celestial body is within three thousand times farther from the Sun than the Earth.

Astronomers Scott Sheppard, Chadwick Trujillo, and David Tholen has discovered the most distant known object in the Solar system, writes Lenta.Ru.

Celestial body 2014 FE72 is three thousand times farther from the Sun than the Earth. His trajectory lies entirely outside the orbit of Neptune is the farthest planet from the Sun system. Probably 2014 FE72 is under the gravitational influence of heavenly bodies outside the Solar system.

“We are now in the same situation as in the mid-nineteenth century, when Alexis Bouvard studied the orbital motion of Uranus, which eventually led to the discovery of Neptune,” said Sheppard.

The scientist said that the behavior of celestial bodies on the outskirts of the Solar system is likely to Planet X.

Scientists blamed Planet X in mass extinctions on Earth

About the possible discovery of Planet X in the Solar system, scientists said in mid-January 2016. A potential ninth planet of the system revolves around Syncase beyond Pluto in an elongated orbit (and inclined relative to Earth’s orbit plane) with a period of 15 thousand years, and physico-chemical properties reminiscent of Neptune.
