Description:

Is there a tenth planet orbiting our sun? This radio broadcast reports on object 2003 UB13, which is at least as big as Pluto, has an elliptic orbit outside the plane of the other large planets, a water and methane surface like Pluto, and other properties which fit the description of a planet. But whether it is actually recognized as such may be a matter of semantic debate; the broadcast also presents the view that many asteroids and other objects of the solar system could count as planets. The clip is 3 minutes and 43 seconds in length.
