Brad Tucker had has the leading role, by ANU Researcher, and team agreed with one of the four possibilities regardless of whether. The scientific value of the project was certainly verified.





Other researchers agree with the ANU team's sentiment: astronomer Mike Brown of Caltech tweeted his support for the project.For one, it is probably 1,000 times fainter than Pluto. The task for researchers, then, is to sift through old data and make new observations. Learn more in the video below:
