The moons of failing planets can harbor alien life forms similar to those found on Earth in hydrothermal vents.
New research carried out by astronomer Patricico Javier Ávalia of the University of Concepción (Chile) has modeled the possibility of “exomoons” around “failing planets”.
Failing planets are worlds similar in nature to gas giants, but drift aimlessly through space without orbiting any planet. There are many theories surrounding this state of loneliness: they were unfortunately thrown out of their “solar system”, or once had a companion star that died. There is also a theory that
According to the Daily Mail, a new analysis shows that moons orbiting failed planets often receive a dose of cosmic radiation that can turn hydrogen and carbon dioxide into liquid water. The water up there would be 10,000 times less than the oceans on Earth, but 100 times more than the water in the atmosphere.
It’s still just enough for alien life to proliferate.
The failed planet often has a gravitational field large enough to cause tides for its moons, in the same way that Jupiter affects “life moons” such as Europe, Ganymede …, helping the planet to function properly to maintain life.
The planet is also not as hot as the stars, so even if the moons are close, they will not burn up like planets too close to their mother star.
Another obstacle, according to Science Alert, is light. However, in recent years, scientists have continually discovered strange worlds with creatures that exist without light on Earth: in hydrothermal vents on the seabed, underground, under permafrost. .
Alien beings on solar system exmoons such as Europe or Enceladus should also be of this type, as they exist under the subterranean ocean covered with permafrost.
So even though the moons of the planets were not “dark moons”, they were still viable.
