New planet found on edge of solar system is named.
The recently discovered asteroid/planet orbiting the sun in our solar system has been given the unofficially name of Xena, after the TV series starring Lucy Lawless. The official name for Xena is 2003 UB313. It is still being debated whether or not this newly discovered planet is actually our 10th planet at all in our solar system because it’s still being debated whether or not Pluto should be our 9th planet or not.
