UberDave: I thought this was established months ago.
ChrisDe: So aliens didn't build a megastructure on a giant burning ball of fire?
To The Escape Zeppelin!: UberDave: I thought this was established months ago.Some of the first stories about this argued that dust wasn't likely the cause because it wasn't heating up and giving off infrared. Don't know if that has been resolved.

Ashelth: frepnog: they actually have no farking clue. they are just guessing. period. is it aliens? probably not. is it dust? they really have no farking idea, they are just guessing.so. who cares?You realize that the data analysis that says "its dust morons" is exactly the same as "why is the sky blue".Less blue wavelength light is being radiated from the object, which means more is being scattered. This happens naturally from Rayleigh scattering from light striking small particles and is a wavelength dependent function. EXACTLY the same reason why our sky is blue and exactly what the data is showing.This is physics so basic even a molecular virologist understands it. And my education in physics is limited to "gravity is why I put foil on things in the autoclave so crud doesn't fall into my sterilized stuff".
Galileo's Daughter: Is it vaguely monolith-shaped?
