"Arthur C Clarke speculated that some supernovae could be the failed attempts by civilization to tap into the zero-point energy. We may never know if ASASSN-15lh was a natural event or just someone pressing the wrong button"

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Some supernovae may well be just the next civilisation ramping up the voltage on their CERN. Theoretical Physicists should be strictly supervised in the playground, not allowed to run amok ;)
