The Kardashev Scale Type 0: Why Earth is a Level Zero Civilization
“Based on our energy use, in 1973 astronomer Carl Sagan estimated that Earth represented a Type 0.7 civilization, more current assessments put us at about 0.72. What does this mean? We’ve had 4.5 billion years and we still haven’t made it to a Type 1 civilization.”

“For the last two years, astronomers all over the world have been eagerly observing what is hailed as “the most mysterious star in the Universe,” a stellar object that wildly fluctuates in brightness with no discernible pattern — and now they may finally have an answer for its weird behavior.”

How to Build a Dyson Swarm
“While such a gargantuan undertaking is clearly unfeasible at the moment, it's never too early to start planning! Dr. Stuart Armstrong, a researcher at the University of Oxford's Future of Humanity Institute, has done just that, forecasting how humanity could one day build a Dyson swarm around the Sun.”

Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
