“Bizarre” star discovered
What is altering the light coming from this star?
Is this science or science show biz?
After 4 years of research, astronomers cannot explain a bizzare phenomenon: star KIC 8462852 shows dips in activity lasting 3-5 days at a time.
The irregular shape and volume of the dips in energy have led some scientists to believe that the star is surrounded by an alien megastructure.
The structure could be technology designed by an alien civilization to collect energy from the star.
Or, it could be hyped-up nonsense from astronomers seeking attention.
