The search for alien life in the universe usually focuses on exoplanets orbiting distant suns, but the new theory proposed by researchers in New York suggests that an extreme form of “nuclear life” might live inside stars.
While constantly scanning the sky in search of Earth-like planets inhabiting the “temperate zone” of their stars – not so hot but not too cold, allowing liquid water to exist on their surface – space hunting scientists may have overlooked a source of potential extreme creatures: the stars themselves.

As the name suggests, extreme organisms are organisms that grow optimally in extreme environments, in relation to carbon-based life, including various forms of bacteria that thrive in parts of the universe that are extremely hot, cold, acidic, alkaline, or radioactive.
new Research By physicists Luis Anchordoqui and Eugene Chudnovsky at the City University of New York proposing the existence of something called “Nuclear life.”
Their theory proposes that virtual particles form together to form cosmic chains, or “ decades, ” which could prove themselves to be the building blocks for this nuclear life within the same stars that illuminate the universe. This cosmic collar will be the stellar nuclear equivalent of DNA and RNA that forms the basis of organic life here on Earth.
“The information stored in RNA (or DNA) encodes the self-transcription mechanism,” Chudnovsky said.
Humanity has not yet discovered these one-dimensional cosmic strings and elementary particles with only one magnetic pole produced (unipolar), but the new study assumes that they can form into one-, two- and three-dimensional structures, in many of the same way that atoms combine through chemical bonds to form Organic molecules.
These “complex” cosmic structures would ultimately remain long enough in the extreme nuclear furnace at the core of the star to multiply as the fusion energy was harnessed, theoretically causing the star to darken.

Even more surprising is Chudnovsky’s idea of it Self-reproducing nuclear species It can develop intelligence, and potentially exceed our own.
“Since they will evolve very quickly, they can find a way to explore the universe behind their star, as we did,” Chudnovsky said. “They can establish contact and travel between the stars. Maybe we should look for their presence in space.”
For now, the researchers plan to develop a simulation of the behavior of the cosmic collar in stars to test their theory of nuclear life, while also examining stars such as EPIC 249706694, which fade sporadically and without explanation.
