1) Could planets orbit a Blackhole??(perhaps now you can see the thought process of my previous question "Sphere of influence"). 2) Blackholes emit a huge amount of x-rays/heat as matter collapses into the event horizon-could this energy support life on those planets?? 3) IF question 2 is possible then perhaps Blackholes are the best place to search for intelligent life because:- a) In 3-4 billion years the sun will engulf earth when it becomes a red giant. b) A Blackhole has a lifespan 10 to the power 73 years -stars only last a few billion years. I know this is highly speculative -however is this possible??
