Lubos Motl post on his forum: ---quote--- David Goss pointed an article in New Scientist to me. http://www.newscientist.com/channel/fundamentals/mg18424781.400 Unfortunately I can't get the full version right now. But it seems that the article claims that someone has observed double images of galaxies that look like images from a fundamental string stretched to become a large cosmic string - and some strange quasar is another part of the evidence. I could not decode what's the rest. ;-) If you happen to have something more meaningful to say about this article than me ;-), don't hesitate to reply! I hope that you will forgive me that I chose a rather provoking subject for this posting. ;-) ---end quote--- Lubos is enjoying the New Scientist level of journalism and instead of getting serious he is saying wink a lot, this is a good guide. I will see what other people said about this. and add it. please do the same if you come across anything.
