NOT A JOKE: Have Researchers Discovered an Alien Megastructure?
Researchers have revealed a ‘bizarre’ star they say could be surrounded by a huge alien mega structure.
KIC 8462852, located 1,480 light-years away, was monitored by the Kepler Space Telescope for more than four years, beginning in 2009.
Now researchers say they cannot explain strange fluctuations in the light it emits – leading some to claim it could have a huge alien megastructure in front of it.
‘We’d never seen anything like this star,’ Tabetha Boyajian, a postdoc at Yale, told The Atlantic.
