Monster Galaxy Cluster Is Bigger Than Thought

Hubble Finds That Monster 'El Gordo' Galaxy Cluster Is Bigger Than Thought

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has weighed the largest known galaxy cluster in the distant universe and found that it definitely lives up to its nickname: El Gordo (Spanish for "the fat one").

By precisely measuring how much the gravity from the cluster's mass warps images of far-more-distant background galaxies, a team of astronomers has calculated the cluster's mass to be as much as 3 million billion times the mass of our Sun. The Hubble data show that the cluster is roughly 43 percent more massive than earlier estimates based on X-ray and dynamical studies of the unusual cluster.

Everything seems bigger the more we find out about the universe and so our thoughts will get bigger too.

As universal mysteries are deepening as quick as they are revealed I wonder how will we as a species also evolve? How will we move forward, will this greater understanding and knowledge lead us somewhere? Beyond even the truth? What is the greater purpose?

When we look through the rear view mirror of our car we see a scaled down picture of reality, in which time and space are compressed and bent out of shape. This is true of the universe when we observe it at great distance with giant telescopes. The past has been and gone but it is all that there is to see.

A bounty of dimensions await, its only a matter of time before they are unlocked.
