What in the name of the Holy Universe are they building over there?
On KIC 8462852.
Who are THEY?
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 get a job in Kurashiki Central Hospital, Japan, in addition to a written test, medical school students must pass three rather peculiar non-standard tests:
- Fold a miniature origami — no larger than five millimeters long;
- Correctly put together disjointed parts of a beetle;
- Cook a tiny sushi.

In 2013, Jake Weidmann has written himself into history books as he penned the preamble of Colorado’s Constitution in handwritten ink for the first time since it has been machine-printed in 1876. His work has a permanent home in the new Ralph L. Carr Colorado Judicial Center. Beyond that, Weidmann is the self-taught calligrapher, illustrator, painter, and sculptor.
