MessageToEagle.com - A supermassive black hole is not the best place to live. However, there are physicists who consider the possibility of life
existing in such extreme places and probably already inhabited by some most advanced races - super aliens.
"Interiors of supermassive black holes may be inhabited by advanced civilizations living on planets with the third-kind orbits,"
Russian cosmologist Vyacheslav I. Dokuchaev at Moscow's Institute for Nuclear Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences writes
in his paper published in Cornell University's online journal arXiv.
"We could live inside a supermassive black hole eventually... but super-aliens may have already beaten us to it," claims
Dokuchaev. His exotic (from our point of view, of course) claim is not based on science-fiction but on Einstein's theory.
Supermassive black holes are considered the most destructive force in space and absolutely uninhabitable.
Their gravity affects its surrounding environment that not only matter, but even light cannot escape from
its surface (escape velocity is greater than the speed of light).
So, it means that all escape routes lead back - to the black hole's center.
Everything that crosses the black hole's 'event horizon' is immediately sucked in, crushed and never seen again.
How could these super aliens manage to make a supermassive black hole's environment - habitable?
Professor Vyacheslav I. Dokuchaev, a physicist at the Institute for Nuclear Research, Russian Academy of Sciences
in Moscow, graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology suggests that existing evidence along with
new research presents some intriguing possibilities for certain types of black holes and life in their interiors,
completely invisible from the outside.
Their gravity affects its surrounding environment that not only matter,
but even light cannot escape from its surface (escape velocity is greater than the speed of light).
Orbits beyond the black hole's the so-called event horizon (the point of no return) are not circular or elliptical
but resemble a complex rosetta-like orbit.
This is another realm, where time and space return to stable states and this is a place where life can exist,
Professor Dokuchaev explains.
These black holes can have a complex internal structure, which could allow planets to orbit the central singularity
Stable orbits as explained in Professor Dokuchaev's paper - the orbit of a photon stablising in a supermassive
black hole, with thin line indicating the start point and thicker line the end point.
"We hypothesize," the cosmologist explains in his paper, "that civilizations of the third type - according to Kardashev
scale may live safely inside the supermassive BHs in the galactic nuclei being invisible from the outside..."
According to the Kardashev Scale, the so-called Type III is reserved only for most advanced lifeforms
existing in the Universe. We, humans haven't even reached Type 1 on the scale.
According to the Russian cosmologist, who made a series of theoretical calculations, inside a rotating black hole,
there are certain regions where photons can survive in stable periodic orbits.
So, if there are stable orbits for photons, there is no reason why there could not be also present stable orbits
for larger astronomical objects, such as planets.
Thus, if an object hits one of such orbits, it will move around the central singularity of the black hole but it will not fall.
It's just like in Earth-Sun relationship. The earth revolves on a fixed orbit around the Sun at a distance safe
for the life on the planet.
However, one must remember that these stable orbits would only exist once you have crossed the threshold
of the event horizon, where time and space flow into one another.
Naturally, the larger the black hole, the better, because it has more room for such orbits, and in addition the
tidal forces are not as severe.
In the supermassive black holes that have masses of millions, sometimes billions of stars, a mass of
our sun, gravity of the singularity would be virtually undetectable for spaceships and their occupants.
Earlier, monstrous black holes existed only in theoretical calculations but recently, more and more astronomers
find them in the centers of galaxies, including our Milky Way.
Black Hole In Scorpius Seen Firing Fast Cosmic Bullets
Located about 28,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Scorpius, there is a black hole named H1742-322.
Racing outward at about one-quarter the speed of light, "bullets" of ionized gas are thought to arise from a region located
just outside the black hole's event horizon, the point beyond which nothing can escape.
"Bloatars" - Abnormal Stars Eating Planets
Scientists get to solve puzzles every day, so here is yet another puzzle to solve.
We known that brown dwarfs are dim objects that too large to be called planets and too small to be stars.
The "bloatars" observed in NGC 3603 should be far too faint to detect in the cluster NGC 3603 located at the distance of 20,000 light years from Earth...
Something New Spotted On The Sun
One day in the fall of 2011, Neil Sheeley, a solar scientist at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., did what he always does –
look through the daily images of the sun from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
But on this day he saw something he'd never noticed before: a pattern of cells with bright centers and dark boundaries occurring in the sun's atmosphere, the corona...
Hidden Misshapen Celestial "Wonder"
It is one of the brightest and strangest objects in the Milky Way - the corpse of a star that exploded around 1000 years ago.
Only a handful of such young supernova remnants are known.
The object named G350.1-0.3 is also incredibly small (only eight light years across) and young in astronomical terms.
Flat Pancake-Shaped Galaxy Harbors Three Black Holes
Universe is still a big mystery. The bright galaxy NGC 3621 is the so-called "flat galaxy" which appears to be just a classical spiral.
But it is rather unusual astronomical object
Bulgeless and therefore described as a pure-disc galaxy, NGC 3621 lies far beyond the local group of galaxies, some 22 million
light-years away in the constellation of Hydra (The Sea Snake)...
Mercury Surprises Scientists
On March 17, MESSENGER (MErcury Surface, Space Environment, GEochemistry, and Ranging) completed its one-year primary mission, orbiting Mercury, capturing nearly 100,000 images, and recording data
that reveals new information about the planet's core, topography, and the mysterious radar bright material in the permanently shadowed areas near the poles.
Weird Alien World Shrouded In Extreme Darkness
Found In The Draco Constellation
The Universe is full remarkable wonders that challenge our imagination and TrES-2b is one of them.
To say that TrES-2b is a dark planet is an understatement. Actually, TrES-2b is the darkest exoplanet ever discovered.
This extraordinary, mysterious alien world is blacker than coal! What exactly is causing this extreme darkness remeains unclear.
