Most of the time, NASA spends its days searching for and studying things in space that resulted from natural phenomena — like creepy valleys on Mars and vast oceans on Europa — but its newest discovery is quite different. In a new paper published in Space Science Reviews, researchers reveal the existence of a man-made “bubble” created by a specific type of radio communication technology. However, unlike most of the things humans have accidentally created on Earth, this peculiar shield could actually prove to be beneficial, as long as we know how to control it…

After all, Proxima Centauri is only 4.24 light-years away, and according to some experimental methods that might make it reachable in just over 20 years, using probes. The only problem? To reach Proxima Centauri so quickly, those probes wouldn’t be able to slow down. So it would have to be a very brief fly-by mission, with barely more than a few seconds to study the star system up-close. For those who want to stick around for a while in an alien star system, it would take a different sort …
