Plan(et) 9 From Outer Space?

Scientists have done the math - and there's an intriguing possibility. The theorized (based off of disturbed objects) large planet in the far outreaches of the solar system may be a rogue planet.

The orbits allow for it - but don't require it. Common sense suggests that it would be strange for a planet to drift that far out during system formation or for such a large object to have the more elliptical object theorized.

First we have to find the thing, though...and prove that this time (unlike every other time it's been theorized) it really exists...
