An expert claims intelligent aliens could be hiding on Dyson Spheres orbiting white dwarf stars across the Milky Way.
Ben Zuckerman, who teaches physics and astronomy at the University of California Los Angeles, is co-author of a new study exploring these ideas and more.
According to Live Science, Zuckerman believes the search for aliens should focus on this.
Aliens have not yet been spotted anywhere else.
But the professor doesn’t think potential extraterrestrial civilizations would bother traveling to a new star just to build a Dyson Sphere.
He believes instead that the spheres would be built around a civilization’s home star – eventually becoming white dwarfs.
Dyson spheres are hypothetical constructions that completely encircle a star. The spheres also capture a large percentage of their solar energy.
The balls are named after the famous physicist Freeman Dyson.
A white dwarf is a small, dense star, usually the size of a planet.
Zuckerman believes that by searching for Dyson Spheres, astronomers may also be able to estimate the number of advanced civilizations in the galaxy.
