    Yeah that's how it was called in restaurants and stuff, had no clue that it's an actual product though.
    Around here they always mixed it themselves to varying degrees of success.

    So this is where the aliens have been hiding all this time?

    The planet 9 theory has been mostly debunked by subsequent papers with far less interesting solutions to the kuiper belt perturbations unfortunately. Can't remember what exactly, been a couple of months since I skimmed them.

    The coincidental group resonances explanation isn't air tight; it's plausible, but somewhat contrived. Planet Nine is not debunked or disproven at this point.

    Wouldn't a planet the size of Neptune in the Kuiper belt be observed by now?

    Well the aliens might have cloaked the planet

    More serious answer would be that it probably depends what is between it and us that might obfuscate the line of sight
    In addition there might be a lack of stars behind it so it dont illuminate or just are somewhere we havent looked yet.

    First off, it's not calculated to have the mass of an ice giant(15-17 Earth Masses), but a super-Earth (5-10 Earth Masses), one theory of it's origin goes that it's the core of an ice giant, that got kicked out of the inner solar system, by Jupiters migration in the formation of the solar system. When talking about celestial objects, you'd rarely use the term "size", as how "big" something is, is a lot more variable than it's mass (ie. two stars with the same mass, can have widely different sizes, dependent on what stage they're at in their lifespan), seeing as when you get above a certain mass, your object would shrink in size due to gravity and quantum mechanics (White dwarfs, neutron stars, black holes, etc.).

    It's all very dependent on luck and technology. Luck because you have to be looking at the right area of space (Which is quite big), at the right time. When an object such as the proposed Planet 9 has an orbital period in the scale of tens of thousands of years, it doesn't "move" a lot compared to the closer planets, so you have to be lucky. Seeing as it's so far away, and rarely seems to interact with any "shorter" timescale objects, it's hard to calculate where in its orbit it should be currently. Another thing to remember, in terms of luck is, that we can't "see" anything that's behind or close to the Sun, from our perspective, which means you have to wait to look at that section of sky.

    Lastly, the technology or method of detection, might not be at a point, where we can spot it yet. Again, due to the sheer distance, the amount/magnitude of reflected light from the Sun, would be very minimal, and seeing as it's not a hot Jupiter, the amount of IR radiation it would emit is low, compared to the background. We might have to wait for JWST to get a decent shot at spotting it, in the IR spectrum.

    In other news, Falcon Heavy launch in 8 days (24th of June), which will yeet some very nice scientific cubesats into orbit (LightSail, Green Propellant Infusion Mission & Deep Space Atomic Clock), as well as the main payload which consists of DoD surveillance sats and systems.

    Or it's a tiny black hole.

    A black hole with the theorized gravity would impact us no differently than a planet with the same gravity.

    Even cooler is, that if it was indeed a black hole, it would have to be a primordial one, seeing as sub-stellar mass black holes cannot form by any known or theoretical process in the current state of the universe.
    This means, a black hole with a mass of less than 3 solar masses (The currently estimated lower limit for black holes, seeing as the Schwarzschild radius is directly tied to the mass of an object, like the radius for Earth is just a bit under 9mm), would have to be primordial, and such, the oldest known object that we'd be able to detect, currently.

    Sometimes, I think I spend waay to much time on Wiki, and other times, that I should've picked something less retarded to study and get a bachelors degree in (Fucking useless Medialogy)

    Totally read this book - it's a great novella / evening read: https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/42201505

    And it looks like 'we' are going to send drones to titan. bravo
    Please don't teach me what to do with my pc.
