The search for an alien MEGASTRUCTURE: Radio telescope starts analysing 'bizarre' star that could be surrounded by a Dyson sphere built by extraterrestrials
- KIC 8462852 is located 1480 light-years away from Earth
- Has produced a series of bizarre light fluctuations team cannot explain
- One theory is that a vast megastructure is obscuring the light from it
Researchers have begun an in depth study of a 'bizarre' star they say could be surrounded by a huge alien megastructure known as a Dyson sphere.KIC 8462852, located 1,480 light-years away, was monitored by the Kepler Space Telescope for more than four years, beginning in 2009.Now researchers have secured time to point the Allen Telescope Array at the star.
