Jumping Jupiter! Scientists Find Evidence Of A Mystery Fifth
Giant Planet That Was Ejected From The Solar System
By Ted Thornhill

The consensus among astronomers is that the solar system has
always had four giant planets - Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and
Uranus. But now itís claimed that itís much more likely to have
been home to a mystery fifth giant planet that got knocked out.

Computer simulations by David Nesvorny at the Southwest Research
Institute in San Antonio, Texas, show that it is statistically
extremely unlikely that the solar system began with four giants.

By his calculations, it only had a 2.5 per cent chance of
reaching its current population and orbital layout with four
giants, but was 10 times more likely to have developed to its
present state if there was a fifth monster body in the mix.

To reach his conclusions Nesvorny ran 6,000 simulations of the
solar systemís birth and early development.
