Megastructures 1.1: Dyson Spheres

We return to the Megastructures series to examine the the concept of a Dyson Sphere, a means of enclosing a star to gather all of it energy. We will look at myths and misconceptions about Dyson Spheres, as well as a number of additional purposes they can be put to, from allowing interstellar travel to generating black holes or running computers large enough to simulate whole Universes.
