Aliens Could Reportedly Use Black Holes For Interstellar Travel

The world is hit by a brand new theory that might explain why we haven’t discovered aliens just yet.

Aliens might be traveling through black holes invisibly 

An astronomer from the Columbia University claims that it’s possible that aliens could be moving through space imperceptibly by shooting lasers at black holes that orbit each other. These are also known as binary black holes.

This mindblowing theory has been presented by David Kipping, and the new method has been called the Halo Drive method. Here’s what the astronomer has to say:

“The search for intelligence amongst the cosmos is often guided by considering the possible activities of hypothetical advanced civilizations and the associated technosignatures that would result. Along these lines, this work has considered how an advanced civilization might utilize the light sailing concept to conduct relativistic and extremely efficient propulsion.”

How it all works

Black holes could become sources of energy and researchers have found out that when photons are entering a gravitational mirror, and they’re shot back out, they also gain a type of kinetic energy. These kinds of photons are called boomerang photons.

Kipping believes that aliens could be harvesting energy in order to travel at speeds which are faster than the black hole by 133%.

This is a method that could indeed be really effective from more points of view. For instance, alien beings would be able to stay away from the gravitational void according to the researchers.

And what’s even more interesting is that the method would make them impossible to detect. That could reportedly be one of the reasons for which we haven’t found them yet.

“A civilization could exploit black holes as galactic waypoints but would be difficult to detect remotely, except for an elevated binary merger rate and excess binary eccentricity,” said Kipping.

No fuel needed 

What’s even more interesting is the fact that the Halo Drive method would be particularly efficient because it would remove the need for a fuel source.

In other words, no energy would be needed apart from the one which has been harvested from the black holes.
