NSF Graduate Fellow Alex Teachey of the Cool Worlds Lab explains our new paper which devises a method to cloak entire planets from extraterrestrial civilizations! This was a really fun little paper which started out from the idea of how to broadcast or signal our presence, but as we worked on it we realized it could also be used a cloaking device too. As always, ask us your questions in the comments below and we'll get back to you!
