Science food for the writer’s mind : Superstructure around an exoplanet hints at ET civilization more advance than humankind

Earlier in the week, the news has been released that a superstructure may haven been fond around exoplanet KIC 8462852 , between Lyra and Swan constellation.
What stroke the researchers at first was a strange pattern in the light around the star, they flash. This pattern is so rare that researchers have come to the rarest conclusion : this might be because of an extra terrestrial civilization.

The hypothesis is that they have built a superstructure of solar panels around their planet. According to Kardashev scale (that estimates the technology advancement of a civilization based on its use of energy), this civilization is way more advanced than human kind. If this civilization doe exist, it is supposed to be at 1.9 on Kardashev. Humankind is at 0.7 on the same scale.

Now my friends, tell me you mind isn’t on fire.
First of all, Mulder was always right. 😀

Second, an extra terrestrial civilization more advanced than us ?

Wow.

Let’s stay humble, cute and not behave like garbage dumpers in the universe. Just think for one minute guys. What would we do if we discovered a new civilization we thought was less advanced than us ?

That would be ugly.

So, let’s behave well toward the universe friends, and write great fiction.

Please let me know what you think about it in the comments section.

Here’s the link to Atlantico’s article on the subject.

  1. Oh. I’ve ALWAYS believed that there were more civilizations out in space. I’ve believed this every since I was a child and I would look up at the stars on a clear night. I think it is incredibly arrogant and self-righteous to believe we are the only civilization–especially since we are regressing! Thank you for an enlightening post!!!!
