The World Magnetic Model governing modern navigation systems recently underwent an unscheduled update. This update, delayed because of the U.S. Government shutdown, is a vital component of almost every navigational system in use today. The current model set up in 2015 was expected to remain valid until 2020 but the magnetic pole is shifting so quickly that officials decided it needed to be adjusted.
“Some other astronomers, however, said the object might be too hot and massive to be called a planet in the usual sense.”
Eight years later, NASA confirmed they had discovered a new celestial body in space, yet revealed it was not a planet.
