i am linking to another thread here on ATS
Scientists have actually found a planet that has no parent star, which they've named PSO J318.5-2.
....from what I read they detected it via its heat signature, which means the planet -has- heat. Don't planets NEED their parent stars FOR heat?
let's see... if we use the Earth as a model..... we figure the Earth & solar system are ~4 billion years old...
the Earth has a hot core which also heats the thick layers of molton metals & elements that make up the mantle and the thin surface crust helps
retain all that heat being generated by the 4 billion year old 'inner-sun'
might just be such a inter-stellar Planet turned 'vehicle' because the planets' former Sun was going to go Nova & the population
just moved their planet from orbit.
the Earth could be put in a huge bubble and be piloted out of orbit if we geared up our technology to do so because the Earth molten interior would be
a source of heat...albiet with cities located way below the surface
80 light years away.... that would likely exclude the planet sized object being from OOrt cloud ice or Kuiper belt comets...thats way into
interstellar regions, out in the boonies
if it is a piloted bubble wrapped planet, that is on its voyage to a new younger Sun as a home place... i wonder what a billion years of searching
would be like to the travelers inside that 'mother ship'...
now that i've gone back & read the replies i have a theory
i have posted about small blackholes that wander between the Stars....
we might be looking at the 'hot' disintegrating Event-horizon that is enveloping a small wandering Black Hole and not a planet sized accumulation of
that 'heat signature' indicates something unique or Anamolous in nature...and if it ain't a product of intelligent design it must be something truly
