somethng that can be interesting to think about.
What if Kepler was on the verge of discovering a planet that is inhabited by a space faring race and they didn't take kindly to our voyeuristic ways
so "they" disabled Kepler just before it spotted their world?
I know I will probably be told to not encourage silliness... but I just can't help myself.
I think its a great theory.
For all we know they may have wormhole telescopes which view us through technology no one on Earth has yet even dreamed of...monitoring all our space
based scopes etc.
Maybe they have the ability to teleport matter,and if so to knock out the Kepler would be easy for them.
Or they could be nearby already,in a cloaked ship,hiding behind the moon.
Now,lets say that some alien race does have such tech,and we were about to point Kepler at it.
Would they wish to stop that happening?
If they were that high tech to be able to monitor us,they would probably have watched the last almost 100 years of war and attempted genocide on TV
news and deduced that Humans,even with our creative side,would be about as useful to their world as a trillion rabid mastiffs on PCP let loose on
So yes,I believe they would certainly wish to stop us locating them-its a no brainer,and I like you theory.
