It is an interesting discovery. Only further observation will tell the tale.
The friend who sent the link to me called it, "Mother".
Got to love a good blob.
"More formally, they named it Himiko, after a legendary ancient Japanese queen."
Drats, I don't like that name.
If this thing is so young, would there be any expectation of it "lining up with" an anisotropy in the CMB?
Now why dont they look a little further back in time to see the big bang :)
They do look further back, but there was an epoch in time when atoms were opaque to EM radiation. This is a cut off point. You can't see any further back than that (so you can't actually see the big bang).
The early universe was only opaque to em radiation, neutrinos could push the limit much further back, and gravity waves - perhaps all the way back.
