Planet X does some amazing things
in it's orbit according to Zetatalk.
Planet X supposedly stays deep in space, moving slowly between the
Sun and the Sun's dark twin for most of it's orbit. At 2 years before arrival,
Planet X is 361 AU from Earth or 9.27 times the Sun - Pluto distance a
ccording to Zetatalk.
Zetatalk: Table of Distances
We can calculate the average
speed with the simple formula
Velocity = Distance / Time
or Average Velocity = 361 AU / 24 Months`
This would mean that Planet X would need to average:
15 AU per month for 24 months
.49 AU per day or 45,990,411 miles per day
1,916,267 miles per hour (MPH)
532 miles per second average speed to arrive May 2003.
This is a basic average speed
based on the data from Zetatalk. Since it is
currently moving slowly it will need to attain a much higher speed to arrive
in 2003. The force of gravity would not speed Planet X to such speeds.
Planet X would also be well above
the escape velocity of the Sun. Even
at the average speed it would zoom through the solar system never to return.
There would be no orbit, just a phantom planet flying by.
The Sun's Escape Velocity
at surface of sun is 384 miles per second
at Earth orbit is 26 miles per second
at Saturn orbit is 9 miles per second
Zetatalk talks about a repulsion
force and the sun's sweeping arms as
the reason that Planet X slows after it's amazing acceleration to arrive.
This is just silly science. We have been observing planets, comets and
asteroids for hundreds of years and Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation
has always applied (with minor adjustments by Einstein) . Scientists have
recently proposed a repulsion force in the universe, however this theory
only applies over distances of billions of light years.
