The theoretical Planet Nine was just announced this week. Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown worked out the orbital characteristics of Sedna, an "inner Oort cloud" object and other dwarf planet candidates and comets at that particular region of the sky. They all shared one characteristic: they all seemed to have the sameorbital inclination, and were bound to the same region of the sky.
 Something disturbed those worlds. Something big. Batygin and Brown set forth a paper in the Astronomical Journal which is a road map to finding a world larger than Earth, but smaller than Neptune, in the inner Oort Cloud. It could be a tough find, distant and cold. But Batygin and Brown have set forth a new Neptune-esque riddle: a math problem in search of a planet.
