Planet X: Debunking the Debunkers

There is something out there, and it was first noticed in 1983 when it affected the orbits of Uranus and Neptune. Now, though, there is not single astronomer who will admit its existence. However, its existence was reported in the New York Times almost 30 years ago.

In Yowusa.com, Janice Manning writes: "In the ongoing debate about Planet X, debunkers often argue that the Pioneer probes, which were on the outskirts of the solar system at the time of the launch of the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) in late January, 1983, proved that Planet X didn't exist." Shortly after this, NASA put out a press release denying the existence of Planet X (we all know how convincing THIS is!--NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show).

However, some unknown force drew the Pioneer probes off their scheduled courses, and the New York Times thought it could be Planet X, and in 1983 printed a story by John Noble Wilford headlined "Clues Get Warm in the Search for Planet X," in which he wrote, "Something out there beyond the farthest reaches of the known solar system seems to be tugging at Uranus and Neptune. Some gravitational source keeps perturbing the two giant planets, causing irregularities in their orbits. The force suggests a presence far away and unseen, a large object that may be the long-sought Planet X."

The article goes on to quote astronomer Ray T. Reynolds of the Ames Research Center, who says that some astronomers "are so sure of the 10th planet, they think there's nothing left but to name it."
