Largest structure challenges Einstein’s smooth cosmos – space – 11 January 2013 – New Scientist.

Largest structure ever seen in the entire Universe which challenges the cosmological principle that states that at very large scale, the Universe is the same in all directions.

The cluster of distant quasars (very energetic, bright & distant galaxies) is appropriately known as the large quasar group (LQG) and extends some 4 billion light years across.
