I get it that they are excited about new space phenomenon, but they can't REALLY believe that that would be MORE exciting than evidence of intelligent aliens. :nope:

It's dimming! It's dimming!

Star that spurred alien megastructure theories dims again | Science | AAAS

“This is the first clear dip we have seen since [2013], and the first we have ever caught in real time,” says Jason Wright, an astronomer at Pennsylvania State University in State College. If they can rope in more telescopes, astronomers hope to gather enough data to finally figure out what’s going on. “This could be the first of several dips about to come,” says astronomer David Kipping of Columbia University. “Many observers will be closely watching.”

Hmm. Maybe the reason there's no infrared glow from this possible megastructure is because it's still under construction. :shrug:

Or it was under construction about 1300 years ago anyway.

Good point. Didn't consider the light speed lag. For all we know, it's now complete and they have an invasion fleet on the way to us. :scaredbaby:

How would they know that we are here, or do you credit them with some detection technology that can receive radio signals before the signals get there?

Ahhh! Efferent radio dishes, can detect radio transmissions instantly, and here I thought you were one of the "good guys" trying to tell Peacegirl how wrong she is.

You didn't know? There's a deep dark secret about rusty crowbars? They're capable of FTL communication. That's how the aliens know we're here. Unfortunately, the shiny new crowbars they're armed with lack this capability. :shrug:

That must be it, I don't have a rusty old crowbar, the police won't give it back.
