Alien megastructure found at Tabby’s Star? E.T. phone home, we’re parked here (science video).

The media led us to believe for a period of several years, posits our Angry, that the weird occurrences that were related with Tabby’s Star had been completely explained. But a new investigation shows that this puzzle is nowhere near being answered, and it is still possible that some manufactured explanation is to blame.

In a discovery that has left astronomers scratching their heads and science fiction fans cheering, a team of researchers has called back into being the potential detection of an alien megastructure around Tabby’s Star, also known as KIC 8462852. The structure, which could be a swarm of artificial objects blocking a significant amount of light from the star, has been dubbed “Tabby’s Dyson Sphere” after the hypothetical megastructure proposed by physicist Freeman Dyson in the 1960s.

The discovery has reignited debate and speculation among scientists and the public alike. Some were suggesting that the structure was a natural phenomenon, such as a swarm of comets or a cloud of dust, while others have proposed more exotic explanations, such as alien construction projects or interstellar highways.

However, the natural explanations now don’t fit the new data. If it were just dust, we would expect to see a certain pattern of light absorption and reflection that matches the properties of the dust particles. But what we see is a complex and irregular pattern that once more defies explanation.

The implications of this discovery are enormous. If the observed effect is indeed artificial, it would suggest the existence of a highly advanced civilization capable of harnessing the energy of an entire star. It would also raise questions about the motivations and goals of such a civilization, as well as the potential risks and benefits of contacting or encountering it.

Not surprisingly, the new research has been met with mixed reactions. Some have hailed it as a breakthrough that could revolutionize our understanding of the universe, while others have dismissed it as a misinterpretation of the data.

As for any aliens themselves, they have yet to respond to our attempts at communication. But if they are anything like the aliens depicted in science fiction, they are probably watching us right now, wondering if we are worthy of joining the intergalactic community or if we are better off left alone.

In the meantime, astronomers – and everyone here at SFcrowsnest – will continue to study Tabby’s Star and other puzzling objects in the universe, hoping to unlock the secrets of the cosmos and maybe even catch a glimpse of our extraterrestrial neighbors. As for the rest of us, we can only marvel at the wonders of the universe and imagine what other surprises await us in the vastness of space.
