An Alien Construction Project?

Where? 

On KIC 8462852

Who are THEY? 

Aliens.

You are seriously kidding, right?

No. It’s all over the media…

Over the course of days, this star [KIC 8462852] can dim by more than 20%, something that ordinary stars never do. Then it will brighten, followed by a relapse of darkening weeks or months later. The amount of dimming is variable, and doesn’t occur with the regular cadence that would mark the presence of an orbiting planet.

When this odd behavior was first recognized, several possible explanations were offered by Boyajian’s team. The most favored was the presence of large clouds of dust from disintegrated comets around Tabby’s star. The orbiting detritus would occasionally mask its light.

But a more intriguing explanation was also proffered: perhaps this star shelters a planet boasting a civilization older and more technically adept than our own. And perhaps these advanced beings have embarked on a massive engineering project, building phalanxes of orbiting solar panels to supply the energy needs of their society. This space-borne construction could cause the dimming.

To Be Or… Not

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none… including the Bard himself.

The Prince, the Dame, Benedict Cumberbatch and David Tennant:

UPDATE: Well, this clip stopped working on YouTube after a day or so. BBC on its site shows it only to the Brits, and perhaps to a few other chosen one. Try it, perhaps you are the one, too.

There is a “clip of a clip” in The Telegraph   Prince Charles plays Hamlet in brilliant BBC sketch alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, Dame Judi Dench and Sir Ian McKellen.

On May 3rd of this year, the world will mark the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death.
