Gilmoure writes: "Submitted to Icarus: "A Bayesian statistical analysis suggests that the probability of the companion hypothesis is comparable to or greater than the probability of the null hypothesis of a statistical fluke. Such a companion could also have produced the detached Kuiper Belt object Sedna. The putative companion could be easily detected by the recently launched Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE)." --John J. Matese, Daniel P. Whitmire (Submitted on 26 Apr 2010)"
