    You don't need to tell people when you put them on your ignore list. That's traditionally seen as trolling on this forum. You also don't accuse others of trolling. There was some baiting going there, I'll admit, but read this as a very serious warning not to do this again.

    And @Crazy Eddie: If you don't want to contribute to this thread, just stay out of it. No need to bait him.

    Atmospheric Refraction

    Atmospheric refraction is the deviation of light or other electromagnetic wave from a straight line as it passes through the atmosphere due to the variation in air density as a function of height.[1] This refraction is due to the velocity of light through air decreasing (the index of refraction increases) with increased density.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_refraction

    Could it be possible that a gas, other than air which is obviously not in KIC 8462's atmosphere, be responsible for causing the light from KIC 8462 to deviate thus causing KIC 8462's light curve to decrease?

    What interactions, naturally occurring first and artificial second, within a Sun like KIC 8462 could create an atmosphere that would refract the light from KIC 8462 passing through it?

    Seriously, how many more random crap theories are you going to throw at the wall? Sooner or later, you may actually get one to stick by pure volume and dumb luck.

    This is BS. You let Dryson be an asshole and troll to everyone on on the Science and Technology forum all the time, and then when one of the posters who actually provides fairly regular and decent replies to scientific questions calls him out in a minor way you chastise him? Really? You should be thanking him for doing the job you should have done long ago here. I don't care what you say about my post or do to me because if it, I am speaking the truth. Dryson wrecks this forum and you don't care because people click on it for the drama. There is plenty of dram in TNZ if that is what people want. Why the fk do we need it here too?

    "Chastize"? Because I said he doesn't need to bait him?
    That wasn't even close to a friendly warning. :p Whereas I specifically said it's a serious warning for Dryson. ;)
    Anyway, comments to PM.

    If there is a post in the science forum that you have an issue with or a thread that you think needs locking, I suggest you hit the report button. I have locked Dryson's threads before.

    Theories are only crap to those who do not present them.

    RIK-210

    A young star has been seen having episodes of dimming. The star is RIK-210 and it is around 472 light-years away from the Earth. A star will sometimes dim whenever an object would pass by it. That is how some planets have been found, by the dimming to causes to the star as it passes in front of it.

    However, there is no planet near RIK-210 to explain for its dimming. It also doesn't have any nearby star that might cause it to be dim. RIK-210 is said to be around five to ten million years old and half as massive as the Sun.

    http://www.itechpost.com/articles/66535/20161219/astronomers-find-star-mysteriously-dims.htm

    https://arxiv.org/abs/1612.03907

    https://phys.org/news/2016-12-astronomers-mysterious-dimming-young-nearby.html

    RIK-210 is only 472 LY away from Earth and would be a better study to determine what is causing the light curve of KIC 8462.



    The light curve variations of KIC - 8462 could be attributed to the remnants of late stage planet formations or an enshrouded protoplanet with an extended tail which are also theories that surround RIK-210 as well.

    Not all alien mega structures would be neccessarily comprised of steel. An alien language could also be a mega structure.

    https://phys.org/news/2016-12-astronomers-mysterious-dimming-young-nearby.html

    I recently watched the movie Arrival very interesting movie if you know what you are looking for. This is an interesting theory to the light curves of several stars that have mysterious dims that cannot be explained.

    Why were Sheena Easton sites used?....See...She....He...across the distance of the sea.

    How an alien civilization might communicate with Earth.

    The very first sense that a newborn uses upon emerging from the womb is its eyes as it encounters light for the very first time. An alien civilization having discovered Earth but not wanting to disturb our natural evolution would understand that the simple sense of sight would be a common language foundation or speech through seeing.
    Hearing would be the second sense with touch and smell and taste to follow. But the two primary foundations of a language would be sight and hearing that like the letter A would form the legs of the letter A to a single point of understanding. The bar in the center of the letter A is to ensure that the rigidity of the foundation is remains connected at the simplest forms of communications and to not get to communicated with dual meanings of words.
    In 1977 the Voyager program launched into space to explore what we call Deep Space, or the space beyond Pluto. On both of those spacecraft were Golden Records that described humanity and Earth and where Earth was located thus achieving the first foundation of communication between an alien civilization through sight.
    An advanced alien civilization would know how sound is created based on a guide wavelength's, depth. width and length that would allow the aliens to understand what was on the record.
    Like I mentioned sight is the first sense that an infant uses when it comes from the void into the light. Humans looking from the Earth into space is much like the infant seeing for its first time. An alien race would design its language based on sight first as a mutual understanding as a formal base of communication.
    Because light travels very far and very fast through space and has a less likely chance to degrade across time and since sight is the first sense that we use an advanced civilization would use the largest source of light that we can see in space to communicate with.
    A sun.
    A sun emits light based on its own rhythm but there are several stars that are experiencing mysterious light curves or dims that cannot be explained as there is not any celestial objects interfering with the suns to cause the dims. The only explanation can be that something is manipulating the sun's light curve to create a language that humans can first see.
    Stars that have mysterious dims that cannot be explained are:

    RIK-210
    EPIC-2042
    KIC-8462

    The closest sun is RIK-210 at approx 470 light years from Earth.

    In all three mysteries the numbers, 0,1,2,4,6 and 8 are present in the first three and four numerical values.

    All of these stars have dims that have increase mysteriously that much like the wavelength of sound can converted into sight at the speed of light.

    Going back to the Golden Record and how a record is made. Each sound that is recorded on a record has left and right wave channel that the stylus travels across to create the desired the sound. If the light curves of the three suns listed above are treated like the wave channels where the length, depth and distance are converted into wave channels and a stylus then travels through both left and right wave channels then a message might be present that an advanced alien civilization is using to try and communicate with humanity.
    The link below shows a record and stylus at 1,000 times magnification. If you look close enough at the outside edges of the wave channels a 2D wavelength is formed that is very much similar to how a light curve of a sun would look in 2D.

    http://dangerousminds.net/comments/vinyl_and_stylus_at_1000x_magnification

    If the light curves of the above three mysterious suns are placed together in various combinations such as the right channel of RIK-210 and the left channel of EPIC-2042 for example then the Golden Record of the aliens trying to communicate with humans might be present.

    KIC 8462 does not have a wobble.

    A wobble is a sure sign that a large planet similar to Jupiter is orbiting the sun which causes the sun to wobble due to the gravitational interactions.

    With KIC 8462 having a wobble then a better determination of a Jupiter sized planet or larger planet being present could be used to suggest that the increase in the decrease of the light curve of KIC 8462 could be the result of a planet. But since there isn't a wobble in KIC 8462 then the solar system of KIC 8462 would most likely not contain any Jupiter sized planets in orbit around KIC 8462.

    However smaller planets the size of Earth to Neptune could still be present in orbit around KIC 8462.


    KIC 8462 also does present itself as YSO Dipper. However KIC 8462 is not a young stellar object but does have a similar dimming pattern to EPIC 204278916.

    https://arxiv.org/pdf/1608.07291.pdf - YSO Dipper
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EPIC_204278916 - EPIC 204278916

    http://www.americaspace.com/wp-cont...ar_alien_dips.png.CROP_.original-original.png - Day 1500

    If you look at page 5 of the EPIC Arxiv and the light curves starting at day 1500 on the KIC graph you can see that the dims are similar.

    What might be taking place place at KIC 8462 is that because the sun exhibits a similar dim in it's light curve to that of a YSO Dipper is that the star itself might be experiencing an age reduction to a YSO Dipper age star as well as possibly having planets orbiting it.

    Age reduction of a star to a YSO Dipper star could be the result of the sun's core producing elements that would cause the star to dim as if the star was a YSO.

    I recently watched a video discussing the Cold Atom Lab and how it will be possible to freeze an atom to the point of no energetic inter actions taking place from within the atom. Perhaps there is a region of space between Earth and KIC 8462 that is similar to the environment within CAL that causes atoms in the space around KIC 8462 to be frozen to a point of producing either almost no energy or a reduced amount of energy that could explain the light curve variances of KIC 8462.

    Ugh -- that should be "its stuff", not "it's stuff" -- sorry, pet peeve of mine.

    Is "And end the end" related to "Begin the Beguine"? :p

    Glass can bend over and over again on a nanoscale

    http://news.byu.edu/news/byu-researchers-make-flexible-glass-tiny-medical-devices


    Brigham Young University researchers have developed new glass technology that could add a new level of flexibility to the microscopic world of medical devices.

    Led by electrical engineering professor Aaron Hawkins, the researchers have found a way to make the normally brittle material of glass bend and flex. The research opens up the ability to create a new family of lab-on-a-chip devices based on flexing glass.

    How would Mormon Flexible Glass placed around KIC 8462 in a Dyson Sphere configuration effect the light curve of KIC 8462 as well as the flux?

    [SIZE=6]Wrong-Way, Daredevil Asteroid Plays 'Chicken' with Jupiter

    Astronomers have found a bizarre asteroid orbiting the sun in the wrong direction while playing a risky game of "chicken" with the largest planet in the solar system.

    The article was interesting but I was more interested in the 6,000 + asteroids in a co-orbit seen in the video link below.

    http://www.space.com/36263-wrong-wa...ication#ooid=I5dGNrYTE6cl2yLzKYxIThiE_qKysWLP

    If you were to put Kepler at the bottom of the page looking at our Sun, as Jupiter transits across the Sun the co-orbitals on either side would actually block the light from our Sun causing a dim in the light curve to take place.

    The larger the light curve would mean that a larger Jupiter like planet might be present that would capture more asteroids in a co-orbit.

    The light curve for such an event would be similar to the light curve of KIC 8462. Small variations starting out as the co-orbital asteroids began to transit across KIC 8462 then a massive increase in the light curve as the asteroids became more densely packed together then a sudden drop back to a normal light curve as the first group of co-orbitals passed. Then the planet itself would cause a decrease, that is if the planet is separate of the co-orbitals and then the second group would create another decrease.

    But since the the decrease of KIC 8462 has been taking place for a very long time I would have to say that a few super sized Jupiter gas planets are present that might even be tidally locked to KIC 8462 where each group of co-orbital asteroids are adding to the mystery of why KIC 8462 and other stars like KIC 8462 continue to dim.

    So I guess this forum is becoming your stomping grounds for your personal pet theories, most of which are pseudoscience at best? I remember when the mods said this kind of behavior would not be permitted here. LOL.

    Can we not have at least one BBS where we can talk about reasonable scientific ideas without an asshole like you determined to ruin it for everyone?
