A New Type of Dyson Sphere May Be Nearly Impossible to Detect

Over fifty years ago, physicist Freeman Dyson proposed an awesome, if slightly insane, idea: That an advanced alien civilization might construct a massive, energy-harvesting sphere around its star, and bunk up inside. » 3/28/15 7:30pm Saturday 7:30pm

This New Infrared Telescope Could Help Us Detect Dyson Spheres

The search for extraterrestrial intelligence just got a big boost, thanks to the introduction of a powerful new infrared telescope. In addition to scanning for pulses of infrared light, astronomers will use device to search for alien megastructures, such as Dyson Spheres. » 3/26/15 10:20am 3/26/15 10:20am

14 Intriguing Ways We Could Detect Signs Of An Alien Civilization

For the past 50 years, our efforts to detect extraterrestrial civilizations have largely focused on the search for radio emissions. But this is hardly the only strategy at our disposal. Here are 14 intriguing ways we could prove that aliens really exist. » 4/11/14 10:00am 4/11/14 10:00am

NASA Scientist to Scour Kepler Data in Search of Alien Technologies

The Kepler space telescope may be dead in the water, er space, but the data it has collected over the years lives on. A new initiative is set to use this data in an effort to locate alien spaceships, Dyson spheres, and a galactic laser internet — and they've been given $200,000 to make it happen. » 7/26/13 2:40pm 7/26/13 2:40pm

Want to find alien life? Search for Dyson spheres

We've been searching for alien intelligences out there for decades, and so far we haven't found a single blip. But maybe we're just going about it the wrong way? » 6/15/12 11:15am 6/15/12 11:15am
