As you may have heard already there is a new proposal to increase our solar system from 9 planets to 12. With the proposal the new planets in order from the sun would be Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Ceres, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Charon, and the provisionally named 2003 UB313 dubbed Xena by Michael Brown of the California Institute of Technology.
People have been talking about a 10th planet for some time. Remeber the whole Planet X thing? Is Xena Planet X?
Planet X is a large hypothetical planet with an orbit beyond that of Neptune. The X mentioned in the name represents an “unknown”, as opposed to the Roman numeral for ten; at the time of its conception there were only eight known planets in the solar system. Its existence, first as a ninth planet, then, after 1930, as a tenth, and once again a ninth planet after Pluto was reclassified in 2006, was postulated on the basis of apparent discrepancies in the orbits of the gas giants, especially those of Uranus and Neptune. Those discrepancies have largely been resolved by modern measurement, removing the basis for Planet X.
Although Pluto was discovered as a result of the search for Planet X, it is not considered Planet X. Nor is Scattered Disc Object object Eris, even though it was at one point considered for reclassification as a planet under a proposal outlined by the International Astronomical Union (see 2006 redefinition of planet). – Wikipedia
Is Xena Nibiru?
Some fringe authors believe that the obsevations of ancient astronomers provide proof that Niribu is an actual planet or brown dwarf in our solar system. These claims are for the most part dismissed as fringe or pseudoscience by the mainstream scientific communities of archaeology and astronomy.
According proponents such as Zecharia Sitchin and Burak Eldem, the Nibiru appearing in Sumerian records correctly referres to a large planetary body. Their research proposes that it possesses a highly elliptical, 3630-year orbit. Such a planet would be approximately in the same orbit as 2000 CR105.
According to his theories of Sumerian cosmology, Nibiru was the twelfth member in the solar system family of planets (which includes 10 planets, the Sun, and the Moon). Its catastrophic collision with Tiamat, a planet that was between Mars and Jupiter, would have formed the planet Earth and the asteroid belt and comets. It was the home of a technologically advanced human-like alien race Anunnaki of Sumerian myth, who, Sitchin claims, survived and later came to Earth, in keeping with the ancient astronaut theory, of which Sitchin was an ardent proponet. According to Sitchin, they subsequently genetically engineered our species, originally as slave animals to work in their gold mines, by crossing their genes with those of Homo erectus. His claims are roundly dismissed by the serious scientific community as bad science in light of the lack of inexplicable alien DNA in our genetic code.
Sitchin says some sources speak about the same planet, possibly being a brown dwarf star and still in a highly elliptic orbit around the Sun, with a perihelion passage some 3,600 years ago and assumed orbital period of about 3,600 to 3,760 years or 3,741 years. Sitchin attributes these figures to astronomers of the Maya civilization. However, scientists argue that a planet with such an orbit would eventually either develop a circular orbit or fly off into space and overwhelmingly consider Sitchin’s claims to be pseudoscience. A brown dwarf with a period of 3,760 years would be clearly evident through infrared and gravitational observations. – Wikipedia
According to Sitchin’s interpretation of Sumerian cosmology, there is a hypothetical planet which follows a long, elliptical orbit, reaching the inner solar system every 3,600 years, called Nibiru (the planet associated with Marduk in Babylonian cosmology). Nibiru collided catastrophically with Tiamat, a hypothetical planet that was between Mars and Jupiter, would have formed the planet Earth, the asteroid belt, and comets. Tiamat, as outlined in the EnÃ»ma Elish, is a goddess. According to Sitchin, however, Tiamat may have been what we now know as Earth that, when struck by one of planet Nibiru’s moons, broke it into two separate pieces. On a second pass Nibiru itself struck the broken pieces and one half of Tiamat became what is now known as the asteroid belt. The second half, being struck again by one of Nibiru’s moons, was pushed into a new orbit and created today’s planet Earth. Although most scientists argue that the scenario is impossible, Sitchin’s supporters argue that it would explain how the Earth’s continents were divided and would also explain why the Earth is layered in sediments.
According to Sitchin, Nibiru was the home of a technologically advanced human-like extraterrestrial race, called the Anunnaki in Sumerian myth who were called the Nephilim in the Bible. He claims that they first arrived on Earth probably 450,000 years ago, looking for minerals, especially gold, which they found and mined in Africa. These “gods” of the Anunnaki were the rank and file workers of the colonial expedition to earth from planet Nibiru, known later as Marduk by the Babylonians. Sitchin believes that the Anunnaki genetically engineered Homo sapiens as slave animals to work in their gold mines by crossing extraterrestrial genes with those of Homo erectus. Sitchin claims that ancient inscriptions report that human civilization in Sumer of Mesopotamia was set up under the tutelage of these “gods” and human kingship was inaugurated to serve as a go-betweens between the Anunnaki and man. Sitchin proposes that fallout from nuclear weapons used during a war between separate factions of the extraterrestrials is the “evil wind” that destroyed Ur around 2000 BCE, as recorded in the Lament for Ur. Sitchin claims that his research coincides with many biblical texts and that the biblical texts come originally from the Sumerian writings of their history.
In a recently published book, entitled 2012: Appointment With Marduk, Turkish researcher Burak Eldem presented a new theory suggesting an orbital period of 3,661 for the planet Nibiru and positing a “return date” in the year AD 2012. According to Eldem’s theory, 3,661 is one-seventh of 25,627, which is the total time span of “Five World Ages” according to the Mayan Long Count Calendar. The last orbital passage of Marduk, he adds, was in 1649 BCE and caused great catastrophes on earth, including the Thera eruption. Sitchin has recently put forth his own date for the next passage of Nibiru in the year 2085, but the date most talked about is 2012 which marks the end of the Maya calendar. – Wikipedia
