'Planet X' Soon to be Found?

"Planet X," one-third to two-thirds the size of Earth may be awaiting discovery on the fringes of our solar system according to mounting evidence produced by Japanese scientists at researchers at Kobe University.

Kobe University professor Tadashi Mukai, the principal investigator of the research, said that it was only a matter of time before the mysterious Planet X was found and that "its surface would be covered with ice, icy ammonia and methane."

"The possibility is high that a yet unknown, planet-class celestial body, measuring 30 percent to 70 percent of the Earth's mass, exists in the outer edges of the solar system," said a summary of the research released by Kobe University. "If research is conducted on a wide scale, the planet is likely to be discovered in less than 10 years," it said.
