Found an interesting article while browsing a science blog, detailing a star with a strange pattern of dimming only found in young stars. I'm curious, though. I think it could be possible, but it raises a few questions. Would we really find an alien species that built structures around a star before we found any evidence on life itself on planets? Should we give more focus on possible objects like this to signify alien life instead of focusing squarely on what life COULD need in space? (Such as looking for water when it's possible that aliens could not even need it to begin with.) I dunno. Opinions? SOURCE: How Long Would it take to get to the Star with "Alien Megastructures"?
