Planet X Could Kill All Life On Earth

Profile Status

Periodic mass extinctions on Earth, as indicated in the global fossil record, could be linked to a suspected ninth planet, according to research published by a faculty member of the University of Arkansas Department of Mathematical Sciences.

Daniel Whitmire, a retired professor of astrophysics now working as a math instructor, published findings in the January issue of Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, that the as yet undiscovered “Planet X” triggers comet showers linked to mass extinctions on Earth, at intervals of approximately 27 million years.

Though scientists have been looking for Planet X for 100 years, the possibility that it’s real got a big boost recently when researchers from Caltech inferred its existence based on orbital anomalies seen in objects in the Kuiper Belt, a disc-shaped region of comets and other larger bodies beyond Neptune.

If the Caltech researchers are correct, Planet X is about 10 times the mass of Earth and could currently be up to 1,000 times more distant from the sun.


Whitmire and his colleague, John Matese, first published research on the connection between Planet X and mass extinctions in the journal Nature in 1985 while working as astrophysicists at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

Their work was featured in a 1985 Time magazine cover story titled, “Did Comets Kill the Dinosaurs? A Bold New Theory About Mass Extinctions.”

At the time there were three explanations proposed to explain the regular comet showers: Planet X, the existence of a sister star to the sun, and vertical oscillations of the sun as it orbits the galaxy.

The last two ideas have subsequently been ruled out as inconsistent with the paleontological record. Only Planet X remained as a viable theory, and it is now gaining renewed attention.

Whitemire and Matese’s theory is that as Planet X orbits the sun, its tilted orbit slowly rotates and Planet X passes through the Kuiper belt of comets every 27 million years, knocking comets into the inner solar system.

The dislodged comets not only smash into the Earth, they also disintegrate in the inner solar system as they get nearer to the sun, reducing the amount of sunlight that reaches the Earth.


In 1985, a look at the paleontological record supported the idea of regular comet showers dating back 250 million years. Newer research shows evidence of such events dating as far back as 500 million years.

Whitmire and Matese published their own estimate on the size and orbit of Planet X in their original study. They believed it would be between one and five times the mass of Earth, and about 100 times more distant from the sun, much smaller numbers than Caltech’s estimates.

Matese has since retired and no longer publishes. Whitmire retired from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2012 and began teaching at the University of Arkansas in 2013.

Whitmire says what’s really exciting is the possibility that a distant planet may have had a significant influence on the evolution of life on Earth.

“I’ve been part of this story for 30 years,” he said. “If there is ever a final answer I’d love to write a book about it.”

      Elenin was a comet that came and went without incident. Named for the Asteonomer Leonid Elenin.. who found it. You may as well make an acronym for every other comet found by every other person who named it.
      Some postulate that Leonid Elenin is not a real person and doea not exist. However, he was and still is quite well known in the world of Amateur and Professional astronomy and had found other commets well before Comet Elenin.

    It would be unlikely that an object of that mass could escape notice. We are able to detect earth sized and smaller objects at distances of 100’s of light years. The Kepler missions have more than proven that.
    Saying that we cannot see or detect a 10x EM object in our own solar system.. esesentially our own celestial back yard .. is like saying that you cant see the Elephant in your own back yard just outside the kitchen window.
    A number of the orbital anomalies have already been disproven. Example: it was found that Neptunes orbital anomaly only existed on paper because its Mass was estimated wrongly. Once Neptunes actual mass is used (which we were able to obtain from more recent flybys.. data we previously didnt have) this orbital anomaly disappears. This is proven by a rather simple maths equation loosely known as the celestial equation. Fg=G over m1*m2*/r2
    Where the force of Gravity equals gravity over Mass divided by distance (of each object).
    This equation is the reason we can plot the rise and fall of all planets to within fractions of an arc second. It can plot the course of a commet to within meters of its travel and fractions of an arc second. Its the reason why we have Sun and Moon charts acurate to within fractions of an arc second. Its the reason that we can launch and interact and track sattelites for GPS and Television a d communications. IF there were a mass of that size.. the equation woild not work and we wouldnt be able to do any of that.

      So you are saying that I may not know those things (which are provable by science) yet you KNOW your thing which has no evidence at all?
      Thats hardly a logical.. or even healthy.. chain of thought.
      Yes.. i can tell you for sure what is at the planets core.
      Yes.. 10 years ago there was water on mars.. in fact there has been water on Mars for quite some time.
      Pluto has always just been a rock.. albeit a rather unique one.
      You are saying ”science doesn’t know these things that can be proven BUT you WILL be harvested”
      What makes your statement hold any weight so i can evaluate that evidence?

    We seem to hear about Planet X all the time, yet it appears to be wholly invisible. Is it some sort of rogue planet that periodically enters and leaves our dimension on a regular basis?

      Or is it a fanciful modern story made using historical events.
      This can be done with almost any story.
      I could sit here for the next few paragraphs showing that JRR Tolkeins Epic works of Middle Earth are our Real Histories.
      Doesnt make it correct though.
