Astronomers May Have Found Giant Alien ‘Megastructures’ Orbiting Star Near The Milky Way

Published on October 19, 2015 by   ·   No Comments



We recently came across an article published inThe Washington Post titled, “The strange star that has serious scientists talking about an alien megastructure.” It was referring to Tabetha Boyajian, a Yale University astronomer who recently wrote a paper on possible explanations for why KIC 8462852, a distant star, has unusual flickering habits and dims drastically every few years.(source)

As a result, Boyajian, along with Jason Wright, a Penn State University researcher who helped develop a protocol for seeking signs of extraterrestrial civilizations, and Andrew Siemion, the director of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Research Center at the University of California, is now working on getting access to the massive radio dishes she can point at the star to search for the kinds of radio waves that are usually remitted by technology. As The Washington Post post expresses, “if they find them – well, that would be very big and very, very unlikely news.” (source)

The star is over one thousand lightyears away, which means that if an intelligent extraterrestrial did create some sort of giant structure, they would have had to have done so in the 6th century.

Wright told the Atlantic that it could be something built by aliens, that it could be a “swarm of megastructures” that are likely fitted with solar panels to collect energy from the star.

“When (Boyajian) showed me the data, I was fascinated by how crazy it looked. Aliens should always be the very last hypothesis you consider, but this looked like something you would expect an alien civilization to build.” (source)

That being said, these scientists still believe that the possibility of these being alien structures is very remote, but it’s still worthy of a hypothesis.
