Giant mystery blob
A strange giant space “blob” spotted when the universe was relatively young has got astronomers puzzled.
Maybe the universe spit up when it was a baby and this is like a giant regurgitated carrot.
Scientists don’t even know what to call it. So they just called it a radiation-emitting “blob.” They used that horror-film staple 34 times in their peer-reviewed study, which will be published in next month’s edition of the Astrophysical Journal. More formally, they named it Himiko, after a legendary ancient Japanese queen.
I’m sure the real Himiko is turning in her grave. How would you like to be compared to a blob?
