‘Giant alien megastructure found in space’: What is a Dyson sphere, and what else could we have found?

Scientists have spotted strange changes in light deep in space — which some claim might be a huge alien power station.

The huge cluster of objects has been said by scientists to be so strange that they have very little idea what it is. And some have speculated that it could be a swarm of megastructures built by aliens, while others say it might be one of the biggest clouds of space dust ever seen.

    A dyson sphere would lower the property values in the neighbourhood. No one likes living that close to a huge power plant.

    Seriously though, a dyson sphete is inlikely to be the cause of the fluctiations if it is under construction.

    If it was aliens, you’d think they would have posted something on Facebook by now.

      The real reason the aliens don’t talk to us is that they can’t stand Liberalism either.

        No, that shit is why aliens won’t that to us.

    “…….since the star is 1400 lightyears away and so our current information about it is hundreds of years old.”

    This must be top secret information that some intrepid whistleblower has decided to risk his future over.

      If it is 1400 years old it must have been built by muslims…in the times of momammed.

    The idea of a Dyson sphere began as a thought experiment, based on the idea that technological civilisations gradually look to harness more energy.

    That was in the Before Time. Now.. not so much.

    scientists spouting space baloney
    to gullible journalists
    for consumption by the scientifically ignorant populace
    to pressure the monied establishment
    in order to get funding
    to keep spouting baloney

      There was a time that science was an amateur pastime.
      Now big science is about politics and entertainment.
