NASA KEPLER TELESCOPE
It has stumbled into one of the most fascinating discoveries so far, a colossal artificial megastructure believed to have been built by an advanced extraterrestrial civilization.
This time, however, Kepler has detected the signal of a supposedly large artificial structure in orbit around a star only 1,500 light-years away from the earth.
After finishing all possible explanations, scientists now believe that this complex structure could be an artificial construction made by an advanced extraterrestrial civilization up the kardashev scale of comparison.
This megasetructura works as an array of solar panels in orbit around its host star, storing the energy and sending it back to the source. The size of the structure is so large that it is blocking a considerable fraction of starlight as it revolves around its host.
Normally all the exoplanets discovered by Kepler have a typical planet shape, which means they are round. This time, however, the telescope detected something that is not round and behaves abnormally.
It has been presented to the magazine Monthly News of the Royal Society of Astronomy in which a certain star called KIC 8462852 is described.
Considering that our galaxy has existed for more than 13 billion years, it is not hard to imagine that an extraterrestrial civilization may be out there, that they possess a technology that allows them to build megastructures around stars.
“The aliens should always be the last hypothesis to be considered, but this seemed like something you would expect from an extraterrestrial civilization to build.” – Jason Wright, an astronomer at Pennsylvania State University told the Atlantic.
The scientists concluded that this strange anomaly could be the result of a group of inactive comets recently disturbed by a nearby star. Because this theory is not convincing, other researchers are already suggesting the hypothesis of the possibility of a mega-engineering project created by an extraterrestrial civilization type 2 on the kardashev scale.
