Tabby’s Strange Star Just Got Stranger

It’s been a year since astronomer Tabetha Boyaijan found strange signals coming from a star called KIC 8462852, aka Tabby’s Star. Now, new research shows that it’s even stranger than we thought. Plus, good news from spaceflight company Blue Origin: your dream of going to space might be one step closer!
