New Planet

Astronomers Find a New Planet in Solar System - New York Times:
Add a 10th planet to the solar system - or possibly subtract one.

Astronomers announced today that they have found a lump of rock and ice that is larger than Pluto and the farthest known object in the solar system. The discovery will likely rekindle debate over the definition of "planet" and whether Pluto should still be regarded as one.
