    seen first in october 2003, it took till now to actually recognise movement and plot it's physical location and size. larger than pluto, a possible victim of Neptunes forces flinging it out into such a far and strange orbit.

    scientists will be meeting to decide on the lowest viable size for a planets classification, once they've decided just how large this one actually is, due to fluctuating light reflected from it

    are we going to see a new scifi channel B movie about shaven headed sword and laser wielding monks fighting off a landing party or will this scientific discovery fade into the dusty filing cabinets of some nameless basement?
