Vulcan: The Famous Planet that Never Existed

In the 19th century, French mathematician Urbain Le Verrier hypothesized a planet that would have existed in an orbit between Mercury and the Sun. His proposal - supported by the knowledge of physics at the time, and multiple unexplained amateur "sightings" - was dispelled in 1915 when Einstein's theory of relativity provided a new understanding of gravity. Artists at the Glass Eye Studio have created this planet as Le Verrier may have imagined.
