Scientists have discovered an “alien megastructure” in space.
That’s less cool than it sounds. Despite being SUPER COOL, this picture doesn’t help.
The video over at Business Insider (link) is very well made and definitely gets the point across in a short amount of time. That’s useful. And I’ll admit that the picture of what appears to be the Death Star got me to click.
BUT. Let’s calm down for a second. We don’t really know what this space thing is. And to be fair to Business Insider, the phrase “The peculiar dipping events in the disk-bearing young-stellar object EPIC 204278916” are not very exciting when you have no idea what they mean.
I kid. Sort of.
No one knows why these stars are acting so peculiar.
