Sorry, E.T. lovers, but the results of a new study make it far less likely that KIC 8462852, popularly known as Tabby's star, is the home of industrious aliens who are gradually enclosing it in a vast shell called a Dyson sphere. Public interest in the star, which sits about 1,480 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus, began last fall when Yale astronomer Tabetha ("Tabby") Boyajian and colleagues posted a paper on an astronomy preprint server reporting that "planet hunters" - a citizen science group formed to search data from the Kepler space telescope for evidence of exoplanets - had found unusual fluctuations in the light coming from the otherwise ordinary F-type star (slightly larger and hotter than the sun).

your lists might find this interesting.
The coverup continues.
Wonder if Scotty’s over there in an infinite transporter loop.
You have to train yourself to see through the coverup...
This is kind of meaningful for me because I knew Tabby growing up as her parents were friends with mine. I was surprised when my father recently told me about her accomplishments and I was glad to see she had done so well for herself.
It’s a vast Universe but still a small world.
Not for Them.
Hot times on the ringworld.
Thought the guy with the wild hair would have shown up by now.
Thanks rdl6989, will ping later.

You forgot the sarcasm tag.
You're one of them, right? One of the "Others"? YOU WILL NEVER GET TO USE MY BODY AS A HUMAN FLESH COSTUME.
