    Making a webcast or TV show into a sexy, streamlined production is something you learn as you go. With high altitude rocketry, you're at the mercy of the elements. This is the second daytime landing at LZ1 ever, and the tracking camera options they utilized for today's ascent aren't available in barge landings or bad weather. Today's coverage was brought to you by good fortune and daylight.

    Green light is toxic to the Anunnaki that's why their semi-complete dyson sphere dosen't collect it

    You don't need that large a structure to occlude a star if the occlusion target is another star a couple thousand lightyears away.

    Put something out in the kuiper-belt at the right spot ant very little energy is required to keep it in position.

    If that would be proven to be the "cause" wouldnt that be equally sensational?

    It would be evidence of an alien civ trying to communicate. It would literally be out of this world.

    My point is that you wouldn't require the extreme technomagical levels required to create a Dyson sphere'like, instead it is something that even we humans could achieve with current understanding of physics and limited resources.

    There appears to be periodicity in the dips at ~750 days. Interstellar medium solutions are probably not workable.

    What have we ruled out for the causes of tabbys star dips?

    The further you are away from a body of mass, the less orbital energy you have.

    So it is way cheaper in terms of dV to move an object that is far away back-and-forth than one that is close to the sun. So if you want to communicate by the means of occlusion you would put the object far out, and 750 days isn't really that weird if they've just recently spotted the changes in earth's atmosphere indicating civilization.

    Now if the weirdness keeps the 750 day periodicity then it is likely natural, if it becomes more frequent as the occlusion disk finds it's proper orbit then not.

    my mom has been ruled out, yours is still in the running though, alongside a Dyson swarm, disintegrating planet and so forth.

    1200 years has pretty clear changes in the atmospheric composition that would indicate civilizations are active.
