Interesting. I've posted this before so you might have seen it.

Different links allow one to get a larger and larger perspective.

@Janechan,

You probably don't have Adobe Flash installed or have a problem with it. Be sure it is installed, and if so, try another browser, etc.

Apparently they still have no real idea of the scale. S.S.

Largest structure in universe discovered




Astronomers have spotted the largest structure ever seen in space. The object so massive that, in the words of one scientist, it will change astronomy's "current understanding of the scale of the universe."

The structure is a large quasar group, a collection of gigantic galactic cores held together by a supermassive black hole. The group, or LQG, stretches 4 billion light-years across.

"While it is difficult to fathom the scale of this LQG, we can say quite definitely it is the largest structure ever seen in the entire universe," Roger Clowes, lead author of the study and a professor at the University of Central Lancashire in the U.K., said in a statement. "This is hugely exciting, not least because it runs counter to our current understanding of the scale of the universe."

Indeed, it is hard to wrap one's head around the sheer scale of the LQC. For comparison, our galaxy - the Milky Way - measures roughly 100,000 light-years wide. The nearest galaxy to our own, the Andromeda galaxy, is 2.5 million light-years away - less than one-thousandth of the width of the LQG.

Dr. Clowers and his team observed the gigantic structure via data gathered by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. The discovery of the LQG runs counter to the prevailing theory that such massive objects should not exist. It would seem to violate the cosmological principle, the idea that the universe is more or less the same no matter when you are.

But the discovery of the massive LQG may call for a recalibrating of that theory.

"Our team has been looking at similar cases which add further weight to this challenge," Clowes said. "And we will be continuing to investigate these fascinating phenomena."

The study was published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Pi seems to go on and on. There is no smallest unit of time. Ages ago I was taught in school
that the atom was the smallest thing that existed. If 'strings', as in string theory, actually exist, the atom
would be truly huge in comparison. Maybe there is no smallest particle. Maybe the universe is infinite.

"Avalon Part 2"

[The ceiling of the chamber continues to lower. Daniel and Vala are crouched on opposite sides of the stone altar. Daniel is holding his P-90 in one hand, using its attached flashlight to illuminate the area.]

VALA
Think! You are the expert on all things Ancient.

DANIEL
(sarcastically)
Yeah, you didn't care about that two minutes ago. "Let's try this one. How about this one?"

VALA
(panicking)
So think!

DANIEL
I'm thinking!

VALA
Sorry, but could you possibly think a little bit faster!

DANIEL
"The universe is infinite."

VALA
No doubt it's deliberately ironic that we're in an ever decreasing space!
