(Undated) -- Those still mourning Pluto are in luck, there may be another planet in our solar system. Scientists announced the discovery today of an object orbiting the sun beyond what was thought to be the boundaries of our solar system. The possible dwarf planet doesn't have a catchy name like Pluto or Uranus, but instead is called 2012 VP113. It's about 80 times farther from the sun than Earth and orbits the sun about every 42-hundred years. Details of the finding will be published in the journal "Nature."
