• New research into supermassive black holes suggest that intelligent extraterrestrial beings could feed off the black holes’ radiation, even powering photosynthesis, which can be used to fuel life.
• In order for life to exist as we know it, the presence of water is integral. The presence of liquid water depends a planet’s distance from its star, whether the planet is located within the Goldilocks Zone. Venus is closer to the Sun than the Earth, and it is therefore unable to host life because it is too hot. Other planets are too cold, so only water in the form of ice exists. Neptune and Uranus are inhabitable because they are made entirely of gas. Because liquid water can’t exist, life is unable to flourish. But a drifting “rogue planet” might find itself within this Goldilocks Zone, and suddenly alien life can bloom.
• Harvard University astronomer, Mansavi Lingham, author of a study published in the Astrophysical Journal, believes black holes could provide a light source for planets which have no nearby host star to create such a Goldilocks Zone. Says Lingham, “People have mostly been talking about the detrimental effects of black holes. We wanted to ask ourselves if there were any positives.”
• [Editor’s Note] It is comforting to know that we have Harvard’s ‘best and brightest’ working hard on these theories, because it serves a very important purpose: It keeps the public distracted from what is really going on.
Extraterrestrials from rogue planets could be feeding off go the radiation given off by supermassive black holes in what is known as the Goldilocks zone.
New research into the mysterious masses suggest beings of another world could feed off the radiation, even powering photosynthesis, which can be used to fuel life.
In order for life to exist as we know it, a few things need to be present, one of the most important being water.
The presence of water is integral for life to survive, and it is determined by a planet’s distance from its star.
Planets such as Venus, are closer to the sun than Earth, and it is therefore unable to host life because it is too hot.
Other planets, are too cold, so only water in the form of ice exists.
