Comet halo theory for flickering 'alien megastructure' star fails • The Register

It's still not an alien megastructure, but the strangely-dimming sun known as Tabby's Star isn't being occasionally occluded by comets.


KIC 8462852, to use its formal designation, gave
UFO-spotters a veritable hypegasm last year, because the odd
fluctuations in its brightness were hard to explain.




When Penn State University boffins used Tabby's Star
as an example of the characteristics we might expect of a star
surrounded by a Ringworld*-like megastructure, the headlines went crazy. Killjoys at NASA damped that down in November, saying it's more likely that the start twinkles because it's orbited by a swarm of comets.

KIC 8462852 Information

KIC 8462852, la estrella que intriga a los científicos

KIC 8462852 at DuckDuckGo



Of the more than 150,000 stars under constant observation during the four years of NASA’s primary Kepler Mission
(2009-2013), this one stands alone for the inexplicable dips in its
light. While almost certainly naturally-caused, some have suggested we
consider other possibilities.

Physicists offer theories to explain mysterious collision at Large Hadron Collider -- ScienceDaily

Physicists around the world were puzzled recently when an unusual bump appeared in the signal of the Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator, causing them to wonder if it was a new particle previously unknown, or perhaps even two new particles. The collision cannot be explained by the Standard Model, the theoretical foundation of particle physics.

Some people thing they are trying to bring Demons! Lets hope this 'bump' isn't a demon.
