Is the newly discovered ninth planet the deadly Nibiru? Time will tell, but in the meantime, here are ten amazing facts about planet nine.
In early January, the news that an immense ninth planet likely exists beyond Pluto set the scientific community ablaze. We still have a lot to learn about this potential new solar sibling, but we do know that it’s huge—at least 10 times as massive as the Earth. The astronomers who discovered it even nicknamed it “Fatty.” And the fact that such a huge body has gone undetected just goes to show how little we truly know about our own solar system and how much science has left to teach us.

Searching for extinct, undiscovered, or mythical creatures is difficult enough, but it is complicated by hoaxers. These are some of the greatest cryptozoology hoaxes of all time.
Even as cryptozoology, the search for undiscovered, mythical, or long thought to be extinct species, strives for acceptance and legitimacy with ever more scientific approaches and efforts to provide solid evidence, there has long been a specter that has cast a shadow over the whole field; that of the hoax. Indeed the history of cryptozoology is littered with hoaxes, from the simple to the truly elaborate, which have been annoying at the best of times and severely damaging to the field’s credibility at the worst. There are many reasons for why some people desire to construct hoaxes in cryptozoology. For some, it’s for financial gain, charging money to get a peek at a real monster. In other cases it is to make a name for oneself, for who wouldn’t want the accolades given for being the first to find good evidence for the existence of a mystery monster, even if that means having to fake it? Still others simply want their 15 minutes of fame, regardless of how they acquire it, and some hoaxers have names that still resonate within the field regardless of their trickery. In other cases, hoaxes are simply childish pranks, or the result of a joke that simply got out of control and took on a life of its own. Misinformation can also be the culprit, misunderstandings that spin out of control without any intentional aim to create a hoax. Then there are those with more insidious agendas, who wish to destabilize the credibility of the field, make fools of those within it, or get revenge or vent anger at researchers within it. Read more

The Central Intelligence Agency has published declassified UFO documents on its website..
Just as the new "X-Files" revival finds another generation of fans who want to believe in the existence of UFOs, the CIA has decided to give people a look into its own alien investigations from the 1940s and 1950s.
Granted, these UFO files were already released to the public via a Freedom of Information Act request way back in 1978, but this marks the first time the CIA has made many of them conveniently located online on its website. Read more
