Astronomers say a Neptune-sized planet lurks beyond Pluto
Science Magazine Article by Eric Hand | Jan. 20, 2016
The solar system appears to have a new ninth planet. Today, two scientists announced evidence that a body nearly the size of Neptune—but as yet unseen—orbits the sun every 15,000 years. During the solar system’s infancy 4.5 billion years ago, they say, the giant planet was knocked out of the planet-forming region near the sun. Slowed down by gas, the planet settled into a distant elliptical orbit, where it still lurks today.

The claim is the strongest yet in the centuries-long search for a “Planet X” beyond Neptune. The quest has been plagued by far-fetched claims and even outright quackery. But the new evidence comes from a pair of respected planetary scientists, Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, who prepared for the inevitable skepticism with detailed analyses of the orbits of other distant objects and months of computer simulations. “If you say, ‘We have evidence for Planet X,’ almost any astronomer will say, ‘This again? These guys are clearly crazy.’ I would, too,” Brown says. “Why is this different? This is different because this time we’re right...

Very clean for China and the cost (300 RMB/night). The best hotel for the price I've stayed at in Beijing. Everything worked...A/C, hot water, kettle, etc. Staff was quite friendly and helpful as well. Western level cleanliness isn't easy to find in China for this price. I'd definitely stay here again. The cons were: While it is a good over all location, the immediate surroundings are in tatters or under construction. The showers water is either very hot or very cold. The setting with the nozzle for warm is a difficult to get right. If the nozzle is hit while showering, which it easily is, the water temperature can chance very abruptly and unpleasantly.

Large excellent room with excellent staff. Loved the location. 15 min walk from the Seattle Center and the Space Needle. Also just 5 mins from the waterfront trails, which were easily visible from my room. Nicely equipped kitchen as well. Cons: Missing modern requirements. Very few electrical outlets. The only one in the bedroom was hidden behind the bed and hard to get at. Internet was VERY slow and needs to be constantly logged into.

Had to wear earplugs because of the ridiculously loud heaters. Also the internet is very slow. Otherwise clean and modern. For the price I expected better.
