Kuiper belt planets hypothesized from simulations


Valued Senior Member
"After conducting approximately 100,000,000 simulations, the results indicate the potential for the existence of a Mars-sized, or even a Mercury-sized planetary body somewhere in the outer solar system approximately 1,400 AU from the Sun, with Siraj noting in the study the distance could range between 600 to 3,500 AU."

"...with some hypothesized to be pairs of rouge planets,"

Ah yes, those zany rouge planets again... Never a mention of the cerulean planets or the chartreuse planets...

That seems pretty far out to be in the Kuiper Belt but I guess some include the "scattered disk" region to be part of the Kuiper Belt.
