Hi I just joined this group. I do not have firm knowledge of Niburu, I do have belief, but I plan on sticking to facts, which might support the Niburu theory.
These are very recent articles based on scientist's statements, or written by the scientists themselves, at space.com and sciencedaily.com regarding Sedna's orbit and slow rotation. Both of these articles present the idea of a companion object at least as large as earth and probably much larger, yet to be discovered. The unusually slow rotation and odd orbit suggest to these scientists the strong gravitational pull of a larger object.

SEDNA MYSTERY DEEPENS WITH HUBBLE IMAGES OF FARTHEST PLANETOID
Astronomers studying 35 NASA Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images of the solar system's farthest known object, unofficially named Sedna, are surprised the object does not appear to have a companion moon of any substantial size.
This unexpected result might offer new clues to the origin and
evolution of objects on the far edge of the solar system.
Sedna's existence was announced on March 15. Its discoverer, Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif., was so convinced it had a satellite, that an artist's concept of Sedna released to t! he media included a hypothetical moon. Brown's prediction was based on the fact, Sedna appears to have a very slow rotation that could best be explained by the gravitational tug of a companion object. Almost all other solitary bodies in the solar system complete a spin in a matter of hours. "I'm completely baffled at the absence of a moon," Brown said. "This is outside the realm of expectation and makes Sedna even more interesting. But I simply don't know what it means." ....(article continues.)
