SETI@home Science :
The Most Mysterious Star in the Galaxy

I like this reply. It seems very silly that a society powerful enough to harness solar energy in a dyson swarm would waste all that juicy heat energy.
They would re-convert it, then reconvert it...then reconvert it...
What we see would likely be many orders of magnitude colder then it should be.
Maybe even the star is actually larger or more active than it appears to us based on spectrum measurements ;)
Speculating is really fun, I can't wait to learn more.
Also this is my first post in 14 years, go figure. :P
