[DailyMail UK]Have researchers discovered an alien MEGASTRUCTURE? 'Bizarre' star could be surrounded by a Dyson sphere built by extraterrestrials, researchers claim - Page 9

Dyson sphere ? advanced ET's probably have stuff like nuclear reactors working on clean energy with no pollution or wastes the size of a tennis ball why would they need the power of a Sun ? rofl.

At any given moment there is about 150 alien civilizations capable of this type of behavior. Which is 1 for every 2,000 light years.

N = R* x fs x fp x nE x fl x fi x fc x L

150=10x0.02x0.75x0.01x1.0x0.0001x1.0x1,000,000,000

Chances of finding it in 3,000 light years scan by kepler, is actually very high. Something to do the tune of 1 in 1,000,000,000. Remember once the structure is built, it would last hundreds of thousands of years.

Chances of seeing an planetary collision at a given time, very rare.

For one planet to hit another planet about the same is about 1 in 100,000 over 4 billion years.

For us to see that at the time it happened. 1 in 400,000,000,000,000,000

I would be less impressed if the media announced, "several stars could be surrounded by Dyson spheres," because that implies a greater likelihood of a natural explanation. There are lots of unexplained things in the universe but no other instance of of a singular "bizarre" astral body comes to my mind, for what it's worth.

I'll accept the advanced intelligence hypothesis until scientists create a less contestable model of the phenomenon or it is revealed not to be one of a kind. SETI will probably find nothing as usual, the excitement will dwindle, and everyone will forget it ever existed.

You can down load everything from kepler online.

There is only 150 per galaxy. It would be hard for it not to be one of kind.

Half of the variables you just gave are unknown at this time.

Yeah, see the problem here is that kepler has yet to look at anything for more than 2 years ever.

Bullcobble is easy to find, the entire mission parameters changed in 2013 due to failure of half of its attitude control systems and the data it now produces is of poorer precision than originally produced. It's looking at weaker stars that we normally investigate by telescope and finding interesting new things... So a star not strong enough to blow away gas clouds or with an odd orbit against a giant gas planet would produce odd results.

See, kepler can't see buff but "on" vs "off" and while you can tell a railcar is a flatbed or a boxcar by the lights of the vehicles facing you across the tracks, you can't tell who's flatcar it is or what was necessarily on it. So they've got unpredictable data from a star. Welcome to science. Its not a dyson sphere if we can see light through it.

Most reasonable and possibly best theory of this....
Some scientists want funding for a new telescope or something to do some deep space exploration and have found a slightly odd star and are making it a much bigger thing than it possibly is in order to secure the funding they desire.

might not be a dyson sphere if you can see light through it, could be a ring or net or other dyson form though.
Anyway, it's all confirmed now, it's definitely an alien structure. And reports say they [the aliens] are on their way for first contact as we speak.

I think there's life out there but the vast majority of it is basic forms. They seem to be finding anything as an excuse for the possibility of finding aliens now. In the future we are all going to be populated Mexican dust desert peoples scurrying for food while they build a megastructure spaceship and let it depart into deep space. Mankind at his pinnacle moment with his technology. tongue.gif

i would like for said aliens to have glowing yellow halos and white swan wings.
and coincidentally they'd announce their race as "heaven race" to mess up with all our religious beliefs.

i wonder if all those people who believed that angels and gods, or whatever, were aliens, would rejoice.
