Well, I hope the conference also gets u'tube'd, because I won't be able to watch it.
Scratch that: I followed the link to the NASA site and clicked the first link.

I bet the questions portion of the broadcast won't be in the week long repeat of the program.

There is no Planet X, that's just a bunch of psuedo-science garbage.

There is no Neptunian-sized planet beyond the orbit of Pluto, this has been confirmed by scientific data since the 1980s. The Dwarf planet Eris has been discovered and many similarly-sized objects will probably be discovered in the years to come, but the "Planet X" that internet psuedo-science buffs like to buzz about is just baloney.

Hang on here a minute. There is no announcement about any "Planet X". The announcement is about a supernova explosion that happened 400 years ago!

Space.com have the story on the front page also; http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/080514-galactic-hunt.html

It is exciting at the same time.

{EDIT} That was my 1000th post.....LOL :)

NOTE that NASA labeled the 10th Planet: 'planetx' in THEIR header . . .
