    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.

    Kurzgesagt forgot to mention that these creatures will not only be able to come outside, they would die if they did so. A lifeform close to the ocean floor would be thriving under so much pressure. They would explode and die if they leave their habitat not unlike deep sea creatures we see in Earth.

    Given planets are named after planetae which means wanderer, rogue planets would be true planets.

    Really cool. Maybe there is life (under ice) in Enceladus or Europa satelites of Saturn and Jupiter ?

    Yknow... technically speaking, we could be in the same scenario. Like the edge of the universe seems impassable for us, but some other intelligent life form got lucky and avoided having whatever restriction we have, and they contemplate the possibility of life held back not knowing how much bigger the universe truly is.

    "Most rogues will share the same depressing fate, their surface will quickly cool down to -270 degrees celsius. If they have oceans they will freeze and become as hard as bedrock, their atmospheres will sink down to the surface and eventually freeze too"My brother in the background : Well damn.

    Isn't it possible that life doesn't exist in the universe as we know it to be... ?

    ...what if we’re like those Aliens and they’re so much more to the universe than we could ever imagine?

    What if our universe has much more to it and we just don't know, like how the beings on the rogue planet don't know of the wonders outside their small world.
