Black holes in space, as we all know, ‘swallow’ anything found before them. All objects that fall into the trap of black holes get lost in the “eternal oblivion.” All? “No” replied Vyacheslav Dokuchaev, scientist of the Institute of Nuclear Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Russian scientist developed a new theory, which states that some black holes may have a more complex internal structure, which lets photons, particles and even planets rotate in orbits inside their core without getting lost in their abyss.
Astrophysicists have known for some time that there are charged and rotating areas within the black holes where objects like photons can survive in stable periodic orbits. Dokuchaev studied these orbits in detail and examined their dynamics.
One of the problems that initially seemed that would destroy any chance of the existence of planetary orbits within the black holes was the way the dimensions of space and time behave.
It is known that when an atom goes through a black hole, it reaches a region in which the radial dimension is converted into the “time dimension” but not into the “spatial” one. Conventional orbits are clearly not present in these areas.
However, when the object travels more “deeply”, there is another horizon where the dimensions change again. It is called the Cauchy horizon and it is the place where there may be planets, according to the Russian scientist.
Dokuchaev calculated that the stable orbits have a rich structure and will be additionally ‘lit’ by the gravitational anomaly and photons trapped in the same orbit.
And here arises a very interesting question: If so, can a planet in such an orbit support the complex chemical reactions that allow the existence and evolution of life?
Dokuchaev clearly says “yes”. “Developed civilizations could live safely inside a black hole without being seen by anyone,” says Russian scientist.
Of course, such a civilization would have to live in extreme conditions, such as massive energy density and huge tidal forces generated in these stable orbits as photons are trapped.
