    Default Not-so-ancient aliens: Star Forge discovered

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...ypes=og.shares

    A star identified by the Kepler Space Telescope may harbour structures which could point to an adanced technological civilisation...A large cluster of objects in space look like something you would "expect an alien civilization to build", astronomers have said. Jason Wright, an astronomer from Penn State University, is set to publish a report on the “bizarre” star system suggesting the objects could be a “swarm of megastructures”, according to a new report...

    ...if they’re out there, Kepler may also detect the signature of artificial structures orbiting other stars. Imagine an advanced civilization that’s well up on the Kardashev scale and has the ability to harness energy directly from its star. This hypothetical alien civilization may want to construct vast megastructures, like supersized solar arrays in orbit around their host star, that could be so big that they blot out a sizable fraction of starlight as they pass in front.

    It will probably be debris left over from an advanced civilization that destroyed itself in internecine conflict

    Yeah saw this earlier, apparently they are now trying to see if there are any artificial electro-magnetic signals coming out of it.
