By Julie Loar

“…feelings can’t be ignored, no matter how unjust or ungrateful they seem.” —Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl   CAPTIONS: For size comparison Earth is shown here next to Jupiter.   Twice as massive as all the other planets combined, Jupiter is so large that 11 Earths could fit side-by-side across its face.

Say Hello to Planet 9

By Julie Loar

CAPTIONS: A predicted consequence of Planet 9 is that a second set of confined objects should also exist.
