    Largest Structure in Universe Discovered

    "An international team led by academics from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has found the largest known structure in the universe. The team, led by Dr Roger Clowes from UCLan’s Jeremiah Horrocks Institute, has identified the LQG which is so significant in size it also challenges the Cosmological Principle."
