A Hypothesis on Tabby’s Star – A Gyroscope

 

I think you can replicate the Kepler Light Curve of KIC 8462852 AKA Tabby’s Star using the Gyroscope below.

But the real reason this won’t work?   The Rotor and Center Axis have to be INSIDE the star.     This is more comical than anything else.

The Gyroscope above appears to be able to replicate the light curve.

Spinning a Gyroscope unbalanced would be a catastrophe. The object would HAVE to be balanced and complete. Not under construction.   Don’t worry about building rotors inside a star.    ha!

 

The Kickstarter for KIC 8462852 | Tabby’s Star is successful!

The Kickstarter is successful!    This means that the star will be observed for a full year for any dips.   It also means that we will finally know what the heck is this:

aliens4These dips are not normal!  However since the project is funded we can actually get some science done.

IF (capital IF)  the next dip shows up and it’s achromatic  shaped anything other than a sphere.  Blocking 22% of the light with no heat though it’s parked right up against a star.   the conspiracy theorists will be the ones that say it’s not aliens.

Here is a cut and paste from a recent AMA with Jason Wright and Tabby Boyajian.

Question :  Lets assume it is rigorously tested and confirmed without any doubt that the signal is achromatic. What then? Where will we go from there? I believe that was the intent of the OP to ask.

Answer :  Then it’s back to the theorists to invoke absorbers without dust or gas — I don’t know what’s left! It would rule out lots of items on our “bad ideas” list (keep in mind that our list of “good ideas” is empty!).

Pretty Cool!   Congrats to everyone that worked to make this project successful!

Hopefully we can get some answers.

 

 

8 Reasons why it could be Aliens at Tabby’s Star

30936

I personally think it could be an alien megastructure.     I’m not saying it is,  I’m just going to tell you why it could be.

The evidence is mounting that it actually is an artificial object the size of an entire solar system 1480 light years away.

Right now out of the theories we have left Aliens are the most likely.

I’m not saying it’s Aliens but to explain it we need another natural theory that fits.  We have none.

To do it by the book they should  get the funding and catch the star  dipping,  They can get more evidence  of it being an alien megastructure via observations while dipping..

Then you can say you discovered aliens.    You have multiple confirmations, multiple reasons, multiple methods that would be a multiple layered confirmation of Intelligent Alien Life.

But with what we know now,  why could it be life?

Here’s the 8 reasons:

1 –  The size of the object that is dipping the light from the star is roughly 70% the size of our sun,  but it’s not a sphere.   Gravity forces any object to become a sphere as it gains mass.     The objects we observed were not spheres.  They had non-sphere shapes, yet were 70% the size of our own sun.     These are all big and small have very oddly organized shapes , directions and orbits.

2 –  It cannot be a gas,  because any gas would show heat and we’d see IR.

3 –  It cannot be comets because that many comets would be an unrealistic number of unrealistic sizes.   We’re talking huge numbers.    Plus comets won’t explain all the dips or shapes of the dips.

4 – There is a 100+ year dimming trend with the star.    This means this star is steadily losing light.    This star was brighter in the past.    (Honestly we should be looking for other stars that appear to be dimmers though historic plates).   This has been verified by the Harvard Plates,  The Russian Ones,  the Kepler Data showing a dimming trend…  and rumor mills of more verification on the way.   Making it sound like aliens have been building these structures at an impressive rate.     Blocking percentages of big stars impressive.

5 –  This should have been number # if your rank it in importance.    There is zero natural way the star can behave this way.

6 – The people that discovered it were not looking for aliens.    They were looking for Planets.      This is more like the discovery of Penicillin than anything else.

7.   This one is interesting,  large numbers of people,  even Tabby in her Ted talk believe that the lack of IR could just mean that the Alien Megastructure is redirecting it not in Earth’s direction.     Since Natural objects don’t redirect like that.   The lack of IR increases it’s chances of being Alien rather than natural.    Others such as Dr. Bradley Schaefer believe that the law of Theromodynamics applies even to advanced alien tech.

8.  It’s provable…   if these structures are nonspheres and nontransparent then you most likely have aliens.     You could know by the next dip.

 

 

Did they find a Dyson Swarm at KIC 8462852 ?

30936There’s a star called KIC 8462852  ( Tabby’s Star ) that the light from the star isn’t doing what a normal star of that age is supposed to be doing.  It’s blinking, dipping and randomly getting brighter and dimmer.    Over the past 100 years (data was found going back to the year 1890) showing the star dimming over time.    As if something was slowly over the course of the past 100 some years blocking it’s light.

Due for a lack of reasonable explanation gives us the **remote** possibility of what appears to be a partially constructed Dyson Sphere or Dyson Swarm.

Several competing theories on why this is happening,  with the primary one being a huge mass of comets blocking the star.   This fell apart however due to the historical and recent data suggested it would need 648,000 giant state sized comets orbiting the star to cause these dips over the course of the 100 year period.    This is something that is deemed impossible.   The next possible solution would be a Dyson sphere or Swarm.  A hypothetical megastructure that completely or partially encompasses a star and hence captures most  of its power output (source Wikipedia).

The reason for someone to build such as massive structure would be to capture a huge portion of the output of a star. The energy production from a project like this would be massive.

It would be interesting to say the least that our first view of an extraterrestrial would be the construction of a type II Civilization. If that was the case (which is unlikely) it means that this object that we are seeing is at 1,500 light-years away means that this was built at least 1,500 years ago, for all we know we’re looking at ruins of a civilization a million years old or a bunch of dirty comets that just happened to make it look like it was artificially built.

Assume against all probability assume that this really is a Dyson Sphere. We are looking at a Dyson Sphere orbiting their star in the year 515 AD. I don’t know, I doubt we savages would have anything in common with them. To put something in Solar orbit like that, you’d assume it wasn’t put up overnight. This structure most likely was built (if it was built in the first place) at least thousands of years ago.

This really is a mystery.    If this proves to be true (and honestly I’m not sure if it will ever be proven in our lifetime)  it would be an amazing thing to know we are not alone in the universe.

Most likely the universe is teeming with life.    We already found evidence of ancient microbes from the planet next door (Mars, image below)

But the image above most likely isn’t like whatever built that Dyson Sphere .. .again if it’s proven to be true.   That is a huge jump from some random bacteria like alien compared to the engineering skills needed to build such a massive structure orbiting a star.

Who knows what is going on up there, but whatever it is it’s amazing.
