For a planet to be inside a heliosphere it needs to be near (or preferably in orbit around) a star. So orphan planets are out of luck, but ALL of the exoplanets that we've found so far qualify.
Planets without a (or with a weak) magnetic field will slowly have their atmosphere stripped by the solar wind. So planets without a significant magnetic field either end up with little to no atmosphere (e.g. Mars) or have a deep, thick, boiling, crushing atmosphere (e.g. Venus) that will take billions of years to strip away.
So if you look for an atmosphere that's thick enough, but not too thick, and is gonna be around long enough for life to evolve then the heliosphere and magnetic field can pretty much be assumed.
I am of course discounting extremophiles, the likes of which we might just find living on Mars or in the clouds of Venus. But that's because we've not been able to find them on Mars or Venus, which are both in our own backyard. If there are extremophiles living on an exoplanet we have zero chance of finding them from here with our present (or near future) technology.
Before following that link ......
Your new theory should explain everything else that the old theory explained, it should also explain something that the old theory did not explain, and then should predict something that can then be tested.
I'm prepared to wait on the third item, but please outline how your wonderful new theory handles the first two requirements. If you're unable to do that then please stop typing such drivel into the comments sections of science stories.
Well, the thing about a black hole - its main distinguishing feature - is it's black. And the thing about space, the colour of space, your basic space colour, is black. So how are you supposed to see them?
And before anyone mentions it .... Yes! This is a copy & paste from my post for the last black hole story. But it actually fits better here!

The caster wheels for chairs are easy (and relatively cheap) to replace.
I figured this several months ago whilst battling HR for a chair that could be raised an extra inch to give me a comfortable working position. Unfortunately the monolithic HR department I was dealing with couldn't understand that someone wanted something that had never been asked for before, and which didn't fit their policies.
I had reached the point of reading the UK Gov document on seating at w**k (https://www.hse.gov.uk/pUbns/priced/hsg57.pdf) and listing all of the places where their policy fell short, when I discovered that larger than normal casters were easily available. I decided that rather than having a months long battle with a bunch of useless box-tickers (all while suffering aches and pains from a chair that wasn't high enough) that I'd buy a set of oversize caster and fit them to my chair during the quiet hours.
Looking back now I wonder why I let them off so easily. I think that when I'm back w**king in the orifice I'll bring it up again and see what I can do about forcing them to change their policies.
That would actually be quite interesting if it is true, as our current understanding of physics is that it would not have been the case. It would mean that there is something new for us to learn.
IIRC currently we believe that by the time (almost) all of the anti-matter had been eliminated, and the energy level had dropped far enough for an atomic nucleus to form, that the density/pressure had dropped to a level that Hydrogen (and a little Helium and Lithium) would be the only atoms to form.
It was only in the heart of the Population III stars that the density/pressure rose high enough to start making heavier elements.
As I say it would be quite interesting as it would require new physics, but is probably very unlikely for the same reason.
The other thing to consider for Leftpondians is that most of them suffer a virtual monopoly when it comes to telecom companies. Those AT&T customers probably don't have a viable alternative that they can go to, so AT&T can't be punished for this sort of behaviour by customers voting with their feet.
My thoughts were along the same lines as well. How long before a person can be forgiven for past actions? How long before they are rehabilitated?
The way he is being treated it seems that the answer is never. In which case wouldn't it just be kinder to euthanise all people convicted of crimes above a certain level, as this would be better than the cruel and unusual punishment of hanging the crime around their necks for the rest of their lives.
They might have just done a dictionary attack on their own users to get an idea of what percentage were vulnerable to such an attack. I know that if I were in such a business it would be something I would at least suggest to manglement.
I really hope this happens, and that the Usual Suspects are forced into being more open and honest about what they have on you and what they use it for. If it does happen then it'll be the thin end of the wedge, and other States/Countries will be able to say that they want what California are getting.
It won't destroy their business model cos so many will not care, but those of us that do will be able to go to the Usual Suspects every few months and tell them to delete everything that they have on us.
There is a phrase coined by Carl Sagan that "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence". And since the current cosmological thinking (and prevailing evidence) is that the Universe is flat to within 0.5% then this claim needs to be supported by some pretty extraordinary exidence, which doesn't appear to be there yet.
Summary of the current cosmological thinking:
If the Universe wasn't expanding evenly then that would suggest that it isn't flat (to within 0.5%) and I would have expected this to show up in the analysis of the CMB.
