'Alien Megastructure’ Claims False; Truth About Eccentric Dimming Of Star Revealed
Since it's discovery last 2015, astronomers and conspiracy theorists alike have constantly been perplexed about a star that's seemingly brightening and dimming at irregular intervals. Due to this discovery, various theories have emerged from dust rings covering the star to aliens harnessing its energy, however, no consensus has been reached so far. Until a new study have recently suggested an entirely different explanation for the mysterious dimming of this star. Researchers have found that the "alien megastructure" was in fact, orbiting a distant star.
The Truth About The Eccentric Dimming Of Star Finally Revealed
According to reports revealed by The Sun, scientists have suggested a new theory in order to explain why a distant star called KIC 8462852, or popularly known as Tabby's Star, was displaying a bizarre "blinking" behavior which might have caused its light to dim periodically. A team from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has recently suggested that this explanation is far-fetched and has claimed the unusual blinking of the star can be potentially explained through the use of "avalanche statistics".
Furthermore, as per Daily Mail, by the use of the said method, it was found that the smaller dimming events are the 'crackling noise' or small avalanches observed during the time intervals between the larger avalanches, the larger dimming events can be seen. Thus, with the constant dimming events, experts claim that the material in the star could most likely be the cause of its state to change, say for instance, from liquid to gas, or gas to plasma.
Meanwhile, experts have highly emphasized that avalanche models have already been previously used in explaining a number of occurrences in biology, physics and astronomy. Ultimately, it was also found that other scientists have already proposed that the behavior of Tabby's Star could be caused by a swarm of orbiting comets which periodically block out its light.
