∙ A similar process could be in play near supermassive black holes, where planets take shape inside the disc and eventually become blanets.

∙ Blanets would be able to grow and reach sizes up to 3,000 times the mass of Earth, because of the active galactic nucleus and will have to orbit the black hole at a distance of about 100 trillion km.
