10th planet announcement



Over the weekend or just before, there was an announcement out about the discovery of a 10th planet beyond Pluto. For starters, there’s lots of debate over whether even Pluto should still be considered a planet, but this new planet is estimated at 1.5 times the size of Pluto and, well, if we’re going to call Pluto a planet, you ought to call this one a planet too, it’s only fair. Anyway, I saw a report over the weekend that alluded to the fact that a computer cracker was responsible for the early announcement.

The article I read basically claimed that the cracker had stolen information about the find and threatened to announce it as their own. The Inquirer has more details today than I saw over the weekend. They basically detail that the find was made two years ago. (Makes you wonder what other finds we don’t know about?)
