Hi Dimitri,
if you mean has CSL-1 been discussed here at PF before, the answer is yes.

But the confirmation that the seeming double image is NOT evidence of a cosmic string is a NEW RESULT. This has not been mentioned on PF as far as I know.

In case of interest, here are some links to last year's and also the recent discussion of CSL-1.

BTW it does seem to be called CSL, not some other permutation of the letters, although I don't think that matters very much at this point in the story

I was indeed referring to the new result.
Never mind the idiocy, it's exam time and I need to sleep more.
