News: The dust clouds around supermassive black holes are the perfect breeding ground for Blanets.

• Blanets, a portmanteau of “black hole” and “planet”, are a hypothetical class of exoplanets that directly orbit black holes. They are fundamentally similar to other planets; they have enough mass to be rounded by their own gravity, but are not massive enough to start thermonuclear fusion and become stars.
• In 2019, a team of astronomers and exoplanetologists led by Keiichi Wada of Kagoshima University in Japan proposed a theory suggesting that blanets could form within massive dust and gas clouds surrounding supermassive black holes.
• They theorized that blanets could be approximately 3,000 times larger than Earth and must orbit the black hole at a distance of about 100 trillion km to avoid gravitational disruption during their formation.
