In the fall of 2015, there was a lot of buzz around a star that’s located some 1,000 light-years away from us. Seemingly ordinary KIC 8462852 also known as Tabby’s Star had displayed some strange and dramatic dips in brightness.
There was plenty of speculation after astronomers announced this star and its up-and-down light patterns.
One possibility was that the distortions were caused by a megastructure that was built around the star, like a Dyson sphere. The idea is that a Dyson sphere would possibly be constructed by an advanced civilization to collect the energy emitted by a star. One of the speculative theories was that someone built this sort of megastructure around Tabby’s Star, which would explain the intermittent light signatures from that star.
Could this be the answer?
An announcement from a group of cloud-funded astronomers say that they all agree on a conclusion. Check out the video.
