Researchers from the University of Cambridge and the American University of Beirut in Lebanon has put forward the hypothesis that the planet Neptune may be one large object and a large group of very small objects in the Kuiper belt. It is reported Hvilya.
Note, Neptune is the eighth and farthest planet from Earth in our Solar system.
So physicists believe that the unusual orbits of objects in the external region of the Solar system may be an alternative explanation.
They claim that with the help of special calculations were able to explain the peculiarities of the strange orbits of objects, but they took into account the influence of all known planets of the Solar system.
Researchers who studied the dwarf planet in the Kuiper belt, discovered several objects beyond Neptune, which got rid of the gravitational attraction of the gas giants.
In this case the orbits of the discovered objects was different from the orbits of other bodies in the Kuiper belt. Physicists have the impression that some special power of drawing objects and put them in this position.
Scientists, using computer modeling, were able to establish that controls this process is invisible planet giant.
To this day this hypothetical planet eludes astronomers, but there is nothing unusual. It is difficult to discern is so poorly illuminated object at a great distance, especially when we didn’t present it location.
It is worth mentioning that Neptune was the first planet open through mathematical calculations rather than through regular observations. Detection of unexpected changes in the orbit of Uranus gave rise to the hypothesis of an unknown planet gravitational perturbing influence of which they are due.
We will remind, scientists have found the unusual video from the ISS a few days ago. In the video, which soon appeared on the Internet, see the mysterious object.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” a group of astronomers, working in an international team of astrophysicists claims that the milky Way – our galaxy – not like a flat disk.
Also “Znayu” I wrote, astronomers using the Hubble space telescope reported on a sensational discovery. It was discovered on the outskirts of the milky Way dwarf galaxy, of which previously nothing was known.
