A possible recent Kepler telescope discovery of aliens may change everything. While aliens have allegedly been public knowledge for decades, with alleged government cover-ups making them sound even more convincing, we still have yet to find other intelligent life on distant planets.
Some question whether the object found by the Kepler Space Telescope is actually a giant structure built by intelligent life forms or just mundane objects, as previously reported by the Inquisitr. The universe is known to have its rogue asteroids and comets as well, and that may be what astronomers saw, but it would be extremely difficult to see something like that.
The question of the existence of intelligent life on other planets has been thrown around for decades. This curiosity has spawned the hugely popular TV series Star Trek, its action-based rival Star Wars, and several other movies and shows featuring space travel. Technically, it could be argued that in the near-infinite expanse of the universe, with all of those stars and planets, it would be arrogant of us to believe humans are the only ones.
Recent discoveries on other celestial bodies have been relatively close to home, such as on Mars and the moon. The aliens possibly discovered by the Kepler telescope could easily be more advanced than we are. The object in question may just be a Dyson Sphere, a superstructure created to harness the power of the nearby star, much like a solar panel.
The Kepler telescope's discovery of possible aliens that astronomers and some volunteers have been giving a lot of attention to was made through highly scientific methods. According to BGR, they had searched for distinct dips in light from different stars and found one they've currently named KIC 8462852, nearly 1,500 light-years away near the Cygnus constellation, experiencing just that phenomenon. What Discovery calls a "lightcurve" discovered through this method was odd enough that if it is indeed a Dyson Sphere, it was placed there by a life form far more advanced than we are.
Penn State University astronomer Jason Wright has been searching for evidence of extraterrestrial intelligent life, and the discovery of a possible Dyson Sphere would explain what he saw.
"That was when I got interested in it because the light curve is so bizarre. It gets dimmer for days at a time. We haven't seen anything quite like this."
He even mentioned how the star is not only old but not where a star would usually form.
These possible aliens found with the Kepler telescope may have what could very well be a Dyson Sphere under construction, as suggested by the Atlantic.

What is a Dyson Sphere? Originally conceived by Olaf Stapledon in his science fiction novel Star Maker, it was then adopted by Freeman Dyson. He suggested that for a civilization with increasing need for energy due to technological necessities, a Dyson Sphere could be the ultimate solution. It is a series of objects in the formation of a sphere, much like the sides of an old-school role player's 20-sided die, surrounding a star.
The supposed alien life forms building it may even be the ones who allegedly visit us from time to time, fueling the controversial alien autopsy, flying saucer, and crop circle questions. The circle motif could be the basis behind the design of their superstructure as the alien scientists possibly planned out their solution to increasing need for energy.
It could easily be decades before the governments of the world admit to the existence of extraterrestrial life, as they are allegedly in the habit of denying any possible evidence as a hoax.
If the Kepler telescope did find aliens building a Dyson Sphere around KIC 8462852, the existence of extraterrestrial life could be that much closer to being proven. We may even have a planet to move to if global warming destroys this one.
