EPFL researchers believe they've found a lost planet

National News // April 18, 2018

Researchers at the EPFL in Lausanne say they have found evidence of a lost planet in our solar system.

They examined a meteorite which landed in Sudan in 2008 and found micro diamonds. The gems can only be produced under intense pressure – finding them in a meteor suggests they were formed when two planets collided with each other while the solar system was forming.

It’s long been theorized there were far more plants in the early days of the solar system – which then collided with each other, leaving the ones we know today.

The rock also contains a unique structure which is not found on earth or the moon – which also points to the formation of another planet.
