    Out in the vast coldness of outer space, there are planets that travel alone through darkness without the boundaries of a system. Here’s how this can happen – and why these frozen deserts might secretly harbor alien life.

    What if it was possible to get liquid water on a rogue planet and put a quart of it in some container and drink it, would it be like regular earth water or something else.

    So if a planet like Jupiter or bigger was a rogue planet and it had a moon with lots of ice, could that moon sustain life pretty much indefinitely? I think orbits like that decay, but very slowly.

    Is it possible for a rogue planet to join our solar system in the goldilock zone, and have the ice melt?

    life finds a way, so they are less likely to trap forever under ice.

    You know... since years are the time a planet revolves around the sun, do rogue planets have no years? Or does the time of the year stay the same time as when it still had a star to revolve around?

    Is there any chance a rouge planet can be caught or trapped in a new solar system and eventually the ice sheet would melt?

    It's a weird thing to think about, a civilization of creatures unaware of the large universe around them. I think Plato covered something similar, but this is on a much bigger scale. What do you suppose their culture would be like? Would they be a theocracy, worshiping the vents that give their towns heat? Or would they be scientific, slowly finding out that theirs is not the only world?

    It’s my absolute fantasy to be able to walk on either a rouge planet or a super earth, just walk about and see what might be.

    Is it possible that the moon was a rogue planet but it surface got and there's life beneath it trying to get out and that's what causes tidal waves.

    When we are talking about life on other planets.. why do we only consider it possible when it follows laws of earth life? That seems stupid to me. I’m sure there is life that doesn’t need the sun, doesn’t need water or any of that. Probably just feeds off of space gas lol. Idfk. That’s the point.
