Theoretical Physicist Dr. Michio Kaku believes that the mysterious dimming of a star located 1,480 light years away from Earth could be the result of an alien megastructure built around it.

A star designated as KIC 8462852 has created great confusion among researchers around the globe. The mystery dimming of star KIC 8462852 has fueled intensive research as dozens of scientists have desperately tried explaining what causes the mysterious light fluctuations of the star.


And while scientists are debating whether we are looking at giant comet swarms, alien megastructures or mere data processing errors, Theoretical Physicist Michio Kaku believes that the potential megastructure around the mystery star could be “the biggest story in the past five-hundred years!”

According to Dr. Kaku, “this star is breaking all the rules” and “we would have to rewrite astronomy textbooks” to think anything different.

Media interest in the mystery star went viral when a group of astronomers from Pennsylvania State University published a study that stated KIC 8462852’s “bizarre light curve” was “consistent with” a swarm of alien-constructed megastructures.
