A New Planet in Our Solar System?

Apparently the search is on to discover a planet in the Oort Cloud, not Orc Cloud as my wife thought…she maintains the Orc Cloud would be a way better name and quite possibly the most awesome thing ever, if it were true.  Ignore her, she’s a dork.

From the Huffington Post:

We may have lost Pluto, but it looks like we might be getting Tyche.

Scientists may soon be able to prove the existence of the gas giant, which could be four times the size of Jupiter, according to astrophysicists John Matese and Daniel Whitmire from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. The two first proposed Tyche’s existence in order to explain a change in path of comets entering the solar system, according to The Independent.

Interesting.
