Thanks for taking our questions, Tabby :)

This may sound crazy, but I was wondering how you would react if it was discovered that the dimming starlight was actually an alien signal, intentionally aimed in our direction?

After all, an advanced species wanting to make contact with more primitive life would be well served to transmit by starlight: something even our ancestors studied and tracked.

Somewhere in the muddle of data, could there be an alien message, waiting to be decoded?

Is it a reach? You bet! But isn't this what makes this so fun?

ps. Stuff that is fun is good for raising money :)

What else do you think would be a smart thing to search for in the data?
