Mysterious 'Alien' Megastructure Might Be Blocking This Massive Star, Say Scientists
Scientists have been baffled by the unusual dimming of light of a distant star. According to astronomer Jason Wright from Penn State University, aliens should be the very last explanation, but this specific case somehow seems to point to that hypothesis. According to recent findings, the distant star KIC 8462852 has been having highly irregular dimming effects of light.
Ross Andersen believes that the primary explanation for this is that the star is being surrounded by a massive space junk, composed of various space debris, rotating around it. The problem, however, is that KIC 8462852 is likely a mature star. Thus, it should not have any mass of space debris circling it as that should only happen to young stars.
