Geoff Marcy has received a grant to look for Dyson spheres
Again, science melds with science fiction.
Interestingly, the grant of $200,000 goes beyond the Dyson sphere search to look into possible laser traffic among extraterrestrial civilizations.
Wouldn't it be fascinating if our first confirmation of artificial construction and therefore intelligent life came through Dyson spheres rather than alien radio signals?
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
