Astronomers may have found giant alien 'megastructures' orbiting star near the Milky

Here's Anders Sandberg's take on the subject.

He thinks that the idea of a 'half-built' or partial Dyson swarm is unlikely; his argument seems to be that once you start building one, you will carry on until you use most available solid elements in the system. I can't really agree - not every civilisation would be desperate to maximise the utility of their system in this way- some will just use enough to power whatever temporary projects are deemed necessary.
