Alien civilisation may be farming solar energy

NASA’s Kepler space telescope has found a star that acts so strangely, they believe it may be due to a structure built around it to harness solar energy.

Senior SETI Institute astronomer Seth Shostak believes the stellar system KIC 8462852 might be home to an advanced civilization.

The star shows surprising behavior that’s odd even by the generous standards of cosmic phenomena. KIC 8462852 occasionally dims by as much as 20 percent, suggesting that there is some material in orbit around this star that blocks its light - and they don't believe it's a planet.

However, it could be other natural phenomena such as comet debris, but the SETI Institute isn't discounting the more exciting possibilities.

  1. With no imagery and no data to support this claim then this is most likely to be titled inconclusive along with every thing else NASA has thrown at us
