Activity Around Distant Star May be Alien Civilization
The Kepler telescope has discovered a mass that isn't a planet and may not be natural at all.

You're referring to a possible Dyson sphere around Tabbi's star. Scary stuff if it is. Any civilization that can build on that scale could wipe us out on a whim. I don't buy the notion that an advanced race would be benevolent. Neither does Steven Hawking. Just look at human history and what happened when a primitive society was introduced to an advanced one. See how that worked out for native Americans.

Insanely more advanced sounds less scary than rivalrous.

Yes its all relative but that wasn't an advanced society that wiped out the natives in USA. You have to imagine you learn a few things on the way to Dyson sphere generation.

Very cool, would I be too dumb for thinking something like this could be a gate that uses the power of the star to make a portal?

Are you talking about a wormhole? Creating it and keeping it stabilized would require a massive amount of energy. A star would be a great source, although it wouldn't be enough. It requires more energy than the sun will put out during its entire lifetime. One question: How do they determine where they'll end up if they go into the hole? That's the bigger issue.

That sounds like a great way to harvest energy from a star, maybe not for a portal but who the hell knows?
