I remember back in high school when astronomy was discussed. Our 1970s-era textbook openly talked about the theoretical Planet X with a highly elliptical orbit as if it were almost certain to exist; we just hadn't found it yet. Growing up in elementary/middle school, the topic never came up and this old text was the first I had ever heard of the theory.

I'm glad that issue is getting put to rest.
