Astronomers have discovered a mysterious giant object that existed when the universe was only 800 million years old as this makes it one of the most distance objects ever found from planet earth. It's huge as it stretched for about 55 thousand light years and astronomers admit they are puzzled as to what it could have been.

It could possibly be one of several things i.e. ionized gas from a massive black hole, a primordial galaxy with a large gas accretion, collision of 2 large galaxies, super wind from extensive star formation or a single galaxy with a super mass equivalent to 40 billion suns.

Anyway interesting to read about the early universe.

Yeah, I saw that!

BTW, I saw another link from that location about a huge hydrogen cloud that will pass through the Milky Way in forty million years. I'd like to see that. I'm not sure I can last that long, but I'll try...

LOL, i read the link you posted and my thought is since it won't happen until 40 million years from now.....why do they (scientists) even tell us .

I was just reading this article. It suggests that dark matter was the cause of hydrogen ionization. If you see the image on the right, you'll see a link to another one that depicts the history of ionization and reionization.
