Dyson Sphere under construction?

RE: Dyson Sphere under construction?
It's a possibility and one the scientists looked at but it should be associated with an Infra-red signature, that is lacking according to the data from the Nordic Optical Telescope, Spitzer Space Telescope and Wide Field IR Survey Explorer.
It's too old to be a coalescing disc.
The next candidate is a swarm of comets several times larger than the entire mass of the Kuiper Belt.

My gut feeling is that the dimming of Tabby's star is too erratic to come from a Dyson swarm construction...

If only we could send somebody to find out. There are plenty of people I'd nominate for a one way trip to the star. Can't we send Donald Trump there? If there are aliens he can show them how to play golf and build a hotel there I guess.

Did you know that somebody born in space (e.g. on Mars) will NEVER be able to conduct Hajj or Umrah because the gravity of the Earth will be too much for their bodies to handle? You can forget about giving Dawah to Luke Skywalker, because he will never be able to visit Mecca. If you have to retrofit the Quran then that should be a clear a sign as any that your religion is not the right one. And that's the Quran debunked. Easy.

I think we need to consider the possibility that we are the elder race of this galaxy.

Are we really at a stage to consider anything when we haven't even actually stepped outside our own solar system?

We should consider that if we don't go out there, maybe no one will.

You really want the Trumpenführer to be Earth's first contact ambassador? We'd be turned into a hyperspace express route before you can say 42.

On the SETI front; Breakthrough Listen observations (Greenbank Observatory) carried out 8hrs per night for 2 Months from the end of October, (So Nov-Dec) data gathered aprox 1 petabyte, analysis expected to take a month, so results should show up in Feb.

I'm also seeing stuff regarding some sort of Phase Transition, though I'm not sure how that applies to a main sequence star.

If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.
