Dyson swarm?
Quote:Jason Wright, an astronomer from Penn State University, is set to publish an alternative interpretation of the light pattern. SETI researchers have long suggested that we might be able to detect distant extraterrestrial civilizations, by looking for enormous technological artifacts orbiting other stars. Wright and his co-authors say the unusual star’s light pattern is consistent with a “swarm of megastructures,” perhaps stellar-light collectors, technology designed to catch energy from the star.

The light from star KIC 8462852 has a variance that seemingly defies naturalistic considerations. Hmmm.... Big Grin

Naturalistic considerations and their problems are discussed in this arxiv pdf : http://arxiv.org/pdf/1509.03622v1.pdf

Omfg....here I thought this was about a vacuum cleaner.

Damn my housewife head....damn it to hell.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Not likely to be a familiar term to someone who doesn't read a lot of sci-fi. Wink

I saw something about this yesterday.
They speculated that if this was an intelligently built structure, who/whatever built it could be up to billions of years more advanced than us.
Definately an intriguing thought.

I shook the sources out of "physics-astronomy" facebook page. 'Cause that guy, he ain't English. Big Grin

I love this stuff, according to the Kardashev scale, they would be a type 2 civilization, a few millennia ahead of us.

Doubtful, if there was a type 2 civilization within 1500 light years of us, I think they would be right here and we would be part of their interstellar empire.

Maybe we're one of their 'farm' planets, they just haven't started to harvest here...yet. Consider
