Hi, I’m Jim Green, Director of Planetary Science at NASA. NASA works with the international science community to explore our solar system and beyond.
We look to unravel the mysteries that intrigue us all as we explore and answer big questions, like:
How did Earth originate and change over time, and how did the solar system begin and evolve, and what will be its destiny. What will be our destiny?
Last July 14th, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft flew past Pluto, capping a half century of exploration of our solar system. It piqued our interest about what lies beyond Pluto, and what can we learn about the origins of the solar system.
The idea of a new planet is certainly an exciting one for me as a planetary scientist and I think for all of us.
The January 20th paper in the Astronomical Journal is fueling our interest in planetary exploration and stimulating a healthy debate that’s part of the scientific process. I couldn’t be more please about what’s happening.
It’s the start of a process that could lead to an exciting result. It is not, however, the detection of a new planet. It’s too early to say with certainty there’s a so-called Planet X out there. What we’re seeing is an early prediction based on modeling from limited observations.
What’s exciting is that, like NASA’s journey to Mars or New Horizons’ flyby of Pluto, you will have a front row seat to see how the scientific process unfolds.
Theories like this serve to stimulate ideas and conversation. They tap into our innate curiosity. It’s important for us to continue the work, and we will.
Anytime we have an interesting idea like this, we always apply Carl Sagan’s rules for critical thinking, which include independent confirmation of the facts, looking for alternate explanations, and encouraging scientific debate.
If Planet X is out there, we’ll find it together. Or we’ll determine an alternate explanation for the data that we’ve received so far. Now let’s go explore.
