Cool stuff, the kind of thing I've hoped for since I was knee high to a grasshopper.

QuoteAt least two planets larger than Earth likely lurk in the dark depths of space far beyond Pluto, just waiting to be discovered, a new analysis of the orbits of "extreme trans-Neptunian objects" (ETNOs) suggests.

Hmmm. Plenty more Pluto size objects but Earth size is unlikely I reckon.

I have to agree with you, Snowy. If there's something out there larger than Earth, it's likely to be a VERY long way out, maybe even as far as the Oort Cloud.

Is that the same cloud where all the data is kept ?  ;D
