erm I think zero.. I dont think people think it is a planet. If you ask what it is then (general public) they might not know, but they know it is not like the others.

Planet X was a theorized large planet that would explain a disparity in the orbital pattern of the outer gas giants--Uranus and Neptune. The search for Planet X resulted in the location of Pluto, Eris, and several other bodies now called dwarf planets outside Neptune's orbit, but Planet X was never found, as it does not exist. The variance in orbits were explained by more accurate size readings taken by Voyager 2.

Actually, within the past couple of years new evidence has come to light that seems to indicate that Planet X may actually exist. I believe the consensus among astronomers as of August 2016 is that it probably does.
+1
level 58
Apr 26, 2015
Ironically, one reason for calling it Planet X was that X is the roman numeral for 10. So now it would have to be called Planet IX ("Planet Ix", as in "icks"?)

I vote for "Planetix" sounds nice andretr-futuristic (but cant help thinking of callanetics, in english confusingly (so close yet so far) called callisthenics..)

I've also heard people refer to a fictional planet that will one day collide with Earth as either Nibiru or Planet X. But I think that's a different Planet X.

Would it be posible to accept "Nibiru" for "planet X"? It's a name given to it by a lot of "believers."

That's a totally different Planet X.

Not knowing much about Superman, never having been a huge fan of DC in general, all I could think was 'Notpyrk?' However, being a die-hard Whovian, all I can think is WHERE IS GALLIFREY? WHERE IS RAXACORICOFALLAPATORIUS, which would definitely be hilarious, WHERE IS ANYTHING? Come ON, people!

It really reassures my faith in education that 100% of people know that we live on Earth, when less than 20 years ago, 14% of Americans couldn't point to America on a map.

Well, if the question was "which round planet is inhabited by humans". I am sure the score would be muccch lower (actually by two factors, the belief of some that our planet is flat, and people thinking, ow we allready colonised other places, yea I think I heard something about that, where was it again..)

I don't know those planets from the movies, but I know the 8 planets in our solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune ... And I even know 9 Dwarf Planets in our solar system not just...: Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, Eris, Sedna, Quaoar and Orcus there's even another dwarf planet called 2007 or10. Sounds a little interesting. Right?
+1

Sedna, Quaoar, Orcus, and 2007 OR10 are only proposed dwarf planets. (Also, Salacia and 2002 MS4).

It's unknown where Yoda is actually from. Dagobah is just where he was hiding for about 20 years. But he's over 900 so not a very significant portion of his life.

Ganymede may also have a liquid water ocean under its icy outer shell, albeit at much deeper levels. Europa (potentially) has the most easily accessible (to us) liquid ocean.

Please do check out "Nibiru", it's basically the same as Planet X.
