K3 in space as a Lyman alpha blob?

  1. Sep 3, 2006 #1
    Space.com 27 July 2006 discusses 'Newfound Blob is Biggest Thing in the Universe' as:
    "... The galaxies and gas bubbles, called Lyman alpha blobs, are aligned along three curvy filaments that formed about 2 billion years after the universe exploded into existence after the theoretical Big Bang. The filaments were recently seen using the Subaru and Keck telescopes on Mauna Kea ..." [Credit: National Astronomical Observatory of Japan]

    This structure looks remarkably like a K3.

    Is it a K3?
    If it is a K3, would this be evidence supprting string theory?
