    I think Mr Brown was getting so much hate mail about Pluto that he is now desperate to find a "ninth" planet to make up for it.
    He himself admits there is much data and study needed to verify anything and tell astronomers where to point their scopes.
    We shall wait and see.

    I get the feeling after reading Mike's book that he sleeps ok at night.

    Interesting orbital data analysis though. Wait and see indeed.

    The solar system in my head still includes Pluto, bring on planet X! We know so little about what is happening outside our atmosphere. Everyday it seems something new is discovered.
