Perhaps they have discovered a Dyson sphere system.
A star system, completely enclosed in an artificially constructed technological shell, built from materials mined from asteroids and moons / planets
in the vacinity.
Doubt they'd announce it if they did, as it would mean a so-called 'type 1' civilisation being around (or were around) at some point to have been
able to build it in the first place.
Probably going to be an exoplanet that is made entirely of Marmite...some are going to love the announcement, some are going to hate it.
