Food For Thought

It has been announced that the, as yet unseen, Planet X does exist somewhere way out there past Pluto.

I was told it is somewhere around the size of Jupiter– one of our larger planets– with a diameter of roughly three-and-a-half times that of our Earth, though I don’t know how they can be sure if nobody has ever seen it.
