Quote:
For the first time, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has seen distinctly the so-called "tenth planet" of our solar system, currently nicknamed "Xena", and has found that it is only slightly larger than Pluto.
Whoah!!

Interesting.
On a side note, there's a big debate right now if Pluto should still be classified as a planet. Some say it's really just a big comet because of its size and its elliptical orbit. I'm not sure why they would want to change this now.

Re: 'Tenth planet' is slightly larger than pluto

This is not the first so called 10 planet before this, NASA scientists have found a new world orbiting the solar system – more than 3 billion kilometers further away from the Sun than Pluto and 40 years away from Earth in a space shuttle. The discovery of Sedna – 10 billion kilometers from Earth – is a testament to the new generation of high-powered telescopes like the Spitzter Telescope. (formerly known as SIRTF) which is about the size of Pluto also.


There is also a debate of what the ten planet is... Based on some scholars the Tenth planet is NIBIRU, which is a planet that is on a elliptical orbit and supposable take around 3650+ years to come back to our solar system. This is also based on old Sumerian text, which is our first real civilization out of the stone age. Which they have in stone tablets' depictions of our solar system , and talk about the Anunnaki, our living god(s) that live on NIBIRU. They also have other clay tablets that also reflect stories in the bible, like the Flood Tablet…

Just weird stuff...

this reminds me. If you travel faster then light speed and get to a point where you recieve light 100 years ago. Then you can see what happened 100 years ago. This is really interesting cause we can see what happened then.
