Abstract Assuming the possibility of existence of a supercivilization we extend the idea of Freeman Dyson considering pulsars instead of stars. It is shown that instead of a spherical shell the supercivilization must use ring-like constructions. We have found that a size of the ‘ring’ should be of the order of (10−4–10−1) AU with temperature interval (300–600) K for relatively slowly rotating pulsars and (10–350) AU with temperature interval (300–700) K for rapidly spinning neutron stars… 
On the possibility of the Dyson spheres observable beyond the infrared spectrum
Abstract In this paper, we revisit the Dysonian approach and assume that a superadvanced civilization is capable of building a cosmic megastructure located closer than the habitable zone (HZ). Then
On the Resolution of a Weak Fermi Paradox
In this paper we consider the Fermi’s paradox (FP) and propose a possible resolution in the context of super-advanced alien civilizations. In this sense it can be regarded as to be the weak Fermi
SETI with Gaia: The Observational Signatures of Nearly Complete Dyson Spheres
A star enshrouded in a Dyson sphere with high covering fraction may manifest itself as an optically subluminous object with a spectrophotometric distance estimate significantly in excess of its
Propulsion of Spacecraft to Relativistic Speeds Using Natural Astrophysical Sources
In this paper, we explore from a conceptual standpoint the possibility of using natural astrophysical sources to accelerate spacecrafts to relativistic speeds. We focus on light sails and electric

Abstract In this paper we consider efficiency of self-reproducing extraterrestrial Von-Neumann micro scale robots and analyse the observational characteristics. By examining the natural scenario of
Anomalous Variability of Dyson Megastructures
In the framework of the approach of Dyson megastructures, by assuming that a super-advanced civilization exists and is capable of constructing a ring-like megastructure around their host star, we

Abstract According to the Kardashev scale, likely extraterrestrial civilizations above Type-I might use natural energy sources of the Universe, which is also true for transmitting their signals out
A qualitative classification of extraterrestrial civilizations
TLDR
A basic taxonomic approach to ETCs is taken and the implications of the new classification on E TCs observational patterns are investigated, including the existence of a Kardashev Type III ETC in the Milky Way and the weakens the Fermi paradox.
On a spectral pattern of the Von-Neumann probes
In this paper we have extended our previous work \citep{probe1} and considered spectral characteristics of interstellar non-relativistic Type-II and Type-III Von-Neumann probes. It has been shown

In order to study constraints imposed on kinematics of the Crab pulsar’s jet we consider motion of particles along co-rotating field lines in the magnetosphere of the Crab pulsar. It is shown that

A search for Dyson spheres around late-type stars in the Iras catalog

In the search for extraterrestrial life
TLDR
The question of life in other parts of the galaxy is supported by a fundamental conclusion of living matter that all organisms have a common chemical ancestry and might be approached by considering life as an inevitable consequence of the evolution of matter.

TLDR
It is found that the maximum Galaxy colonization timescale is actually much shorter than previous work has found, and that many "sustainability" counter-arguments to Hart's thesis suffer from the monocultural fallacy.
