An enormous amoeba-like structure 200 million light-years
wide and made up of galaxies and large bubbles of gas is the
largest known object in the universe, scientists say.
The galaxies and gas bubbles, called Lyman alpha blobs, are
aligned along three curvy filaments that formed about 2 billion
years after the universe exploded into existence after the
theoretical Big Bang. The filaments were recently seen using the
Subaru and Keck telescopes on Mauna Kea.
The galaxies within the newly found structure are packed
together four times closer than the universe's average.
Here's something to ponder.
perhaps its just that technology allows us to...
or that the intellectual questioning has led to the mapping of
large structures of galaxy distribution.
What are they looking for?
Think that some scientists are looking for what might correspond to organs
developing in the different regions of the observable universe...?
