Astronomers discover mega alien structure in space

Penn State University astronomer Jason Wright has evidence to publish a major discovery of a cluster of megastructures found in a star very close to the Milky Way called KIC 8462852.

In an interview with the renowned British newspaper,  The Independent,  Jason Wright said:  “I can’t understand it and that’s what makes the situation interesting, really cool. It’s like it doesn’t make sense.”

Already in a report for  The Atlantic website , Dr. Wright added that extraterrestrials should be the last hypothesis considered, but the constructions appear to be something built by beings from other planets. “I was fascinated by how crazy it appears to be,” said the astronomer.

Other astronomers involved in the research said that clusters of objects in space look like something you’d expect an extraterrestrial civilization to build.

“We’ve never seen anything like this star before,” said  Tabetha Boyajian of Yale University. “It’s very weird. We thought it could be a computer error or some movement on the spacecraft, but everything has been checked.”

KIC 8462852 is located between the constellations Cygnus and Lyra, just above the Milky Way. The first time it was noticed was in 2009, when the Kepler telescope identified it as similar to Earth, for having planets orbiting like those close to Planet Earth.

But KIC 8462852 was emitting a strange pattern of light, unlike any other star in Kepler’s search for inhabited planet

The Kepler telescope works by analyzing light from distant places in the Universe, looking for changes that occur when planets move in front of their stars, which has been seen in more than 150,000 stars, simultaneously. But the parameters of KIC 8462852 don’t seem to be normal for a planet.

After the Kepler telescope collected enough information, they needed human eyes, and human work that could not be done by current computer programs, and with that the astronomers of the project decided to create  Planet Hunters (Planet Hunters) , a program that allows amateur scientists to examine the patterns emitted by stars from the comfort of their own home. Since then many stars classified as ‘interesting’ and ‘bizarre’ have been found.

If you’re interested, you can join  Planet Hunters  too, and who knows how to revolutionize astronomy.
