Scientists Discover 10th Planet!

Isn't this amazing? This as-yet-unnamed planet (known for the moment as 2003 UB313) is the largest thing discovered in our solar system in over a hundred years and takes approximately 560 Earth years to travel around the sun. Wow.

Thought you all might like to take a look at the website of the primary discoverer of the new planet, Michael Brown of Cal Tech. It's http://www.gps.caltech.edu/%7Embrown/ and includes some other small planetoids circling the sun--what fun!
