Large Quasar Group


The discovery in the deep Universe was made by a team led by Roger Clowes at the Jeremiah Horrocks Institute at Britain's University of Central Lancashire.

This object is 4 billion ly across. 

Amazing pictures that push physics beyond what we believe.
I wonder how close it is to the center of the known universe? If this thing took 4bly to get to this point. What was it before the explosion?

It also looks like a torus.

This is a huge magnetic field. I wonder if we can see any rotation on this because of its magnetic field needs tremendous rotation. They might be able to compare this to the next series of pictures.
