Star Citizen Hits $34 Million

The Roberts Space Industries website has a new letter from the chairman, as Chris Roberts reacts to Star Citizen's crowd-funding campaign surpassing the $34 million plateau and unlocking the thrills of the MISC Hull C (Discreet). Their $35 million stretch goal is a small, armored data-smuggling ship called The Drake Herald, and the new update also unveils their $36 million goal, the Tamsa System, a risky place to play, as it includes two planets orbiting a black hole.

For a cosmological instant, yes. The entire point of a black hole is that it doesn't allow for stable orbits. Everything eventually gets sucked in.

Admittedly, the blurb doesn't say that the planets have a stable orbit, so perhaps they are on a course to being sucked in.

This is absolutely not correct. A quick google search would have given you the correct answer. Any orbit stable for any large body is also stable for a black hole.

Here's a good starting point:

"Is there any stable orbit around a black hole?"
