Rogue planets everywhere.
Scientific observations are indicating that rogue planets may be much more common than previously thought. These bodies are being classified as "sub–brown dwarfs". Evidence suggests that these bodies may form independent of star formation, from globules that break away from a nebula.

RE: Rogue planets everywhere.
I wonder if life or even intelligent life is possible on even a rogue planet?


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

The article in the link discusses it. In summary, they postulate that dark matter interactions may provide the energy necessary to fuel life.

Wouldn't you need some kind of constant energy source for any kind of life to develop? Consider

Edit: just saw the post above mine, interesting!

I don't see why life in general couldn't evolve in such a place. Assuming the conditions are there. Just need some energy and the right liquid I figure.
Of course this assumes that life exists elsewhere which seems likely but who knows. As for intelligent life.. I think if it exists elsewhere it is incredibly rare.

Perhaps it's core could supply such energy..
