The Dyson Sphere Theory

Okay, I’m not huge on wild conspiracy theories. But I like that some scientists think it is at least plausible that highly advanced aliens are building  megastructures around stars to capture their energy like a battery. 🀯 The cool thing is there would actually be a good reason for aliens to do this if they were capable enough. πŸŒŸπŸ”‹

I’m not saying I believe it, but I love that this is a theoretical possibility. And it’s influencing SETI.

πŸ‘‰ Missing stars could point to alien civilizations, scientists say

The idea here is that a very advanced alien civilization may be able to construct a hypothetical megastructure called a Dyson sphere that completely encompasses a star in order to capture a large portion of its energy. Think of it as converting a star into a gargantuan battery.

Texas

Blanco State Park

I’m excited about the European pool / spa tour, but you I don’t have to go that far away for a great swimming spot. Right here in Texas we have some more rustic and natural options. I’m officially starting a new series of Texas swimming holes for when summer rolls around again.

To kick things off, Blanco State Park. ☺️
