There’s a new addition to the neighborhood!
NASA researchers have discovered an object whose orbit is beyond the known edge of our solar system. The possible dwarf planet’s orbit stretches farther than Pluto and beyond Sedna, which was previously believed to be farthest object in the solar system.
This discovery shows scientists that the outer-limits of the solar system are not the “vast wasteland” they were once thought to be, and there is much more out there to explore.
