FOR any­one who’s look­ing for­ward to the first dis­cov­ery of alien life, we’ve got bad news: sci­en­tists have con­firmed that KIC 8462852 (‘Tabby’s Star’) isn’t be­ing or­bited by “alien megas­truc­tures”. The star’s light was be­ing blocked at in­ter­vals, but new data has shown that this is most likely due to dust or changes in the star’s light.
