The next 5 years were largely spent on finding ways to purify the DNA samples and extract and analyze the carbon atoms using high-powered particle accelerators."

(Data) Scott Sheppard Not to be deterred Planet Nine enthusiasts can now invoke two more lines of evidence As they spin around the sun the known planets asteroids and most TNOs stay in roughly the same plane known as the ecliptic But this year yielded some striking exceptions One new object known as 2016 NM56 has an orbit tilted so far out of the ecliptic that it essentially orbits backward Another has a near-perpendicular orbit relative to the ecliptic In a talk at the meetingBatygin showed how Planet Nine might create these wonky trajectories Through what’s known as the Kozai mechanism a massive object can induce a gravitational ratcheting effect that slowly changes the inclination of smaller worlds and “leads their orbits to flip upside-down” he says Batygin and Brown’s proposed orbit for Planet Nine is itself rather slanted poking out about 30° relative to the ecliptic Their graduate student Elizabeth Bailey showed how the tilted orbit could potentially explain a curious feature of the sun: Rather than being pointed perpendicular to the ecliptic its north pole is off by about 6° Researchers have tried to explain the anomaly discovered in the 19th century by invoking interactions between the early sun’s magnetic field and the disk of gas and dust that gave rise to the solar system Bailey’s simulations showed instead that over the course of the solar system’s history the lopsided orbit of Planet Nine would have exerted a gravitational force on the sun that could have pushed it almost exactly 6° to one side Astronomer Rodney Gomes of the National Observatory of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro and his collaborators independently came up with the same idea in July Few will believe in Planet Nine until it is seen directly Planets spend the most time in the most distant part of their orbit where they travel slowest For Planet Nine that would put it somewhere in the constellation Orion which is just where astronomers are searching with the largest widest angle telescopes they can find Batygin Brown Sheppard and Trujillo are all using the 8-meter Subaru Telescope because its Hyper Suprime-Cam can cover large parts of the sky with each shot After their recent run in late September which covered 10% of the most distant part of Planet Nine’s putative orbitBatygin believes “there’s a 10% chance it’s in the bag” Sheppard’s team has also been awarded time on two telescopes in Chile where Orion is also visible: the 4-meter Blanco Telescope and the 65-meter Magellan Telescopes He says his team should scrutinize about a third of the outlying parts of Planet Nine’s proposed orbit this year and feels there’s a good chance they might see it by the end of 2017 Computational astrophysicist Peter Nugent of the University of California in Berkeley is taking a different tack: His graduate students will trawl through archival data from a survey begun in 2009 on the venerable 51-meter telescope on Mount Palomar in California to see whether it happened to spot the planet To the victors will go the glory of discovering a new planet “We’re trying to keep it friendly” Sheppard says but adds that it’s definitely a race Early on the different groups talked about sharing their intended search fields so as to avoid duplicative efforts on the sky—but now “we each want to be the one to find it” Sheppard says And should that happen what then “I’d basically retire at that point” he says laughing For more coverage on the solar system visit our Planets topic page like the first six,” according to a statement by the university.” The Berkeley investigation “stemmed from a number of incidents believed to have occurred between 2001 and 2010 and [that] involved students who have since graduated.
