“If we are right, this structure contradicts the current models of the universe,” said Professor Lajos Balazs of Konkoly Observatory in Budapest, the lead author on the paper, in a statement. “It was a huge surprise to find something this big – and we still don’t quite understand how it came to exist at all.”
And it may not even be the biggest structure at all, even if it is confirmed. Another contender, the Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall, is a similar concentration of GRBs – in this case 19 – that could span more than 10 billion light-years in size.
