The Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall is the largest known super-structure in the universe. It is a huge group of galaxies forming a sheet like pattern which is about 10 billion light-years long, 7.2 billion light-years wide, and almost 1billion light-years thick. It is about 10 billion light-years away in the constellations of Hercules and Corona Borealis, hence its name. For perspective the observable universe is about 93 billion light-years in diameter. It was discovered in November 2013 by mapping gamma-ray bursts. These are very luminous explosions of distant massive stars, the most powerful explosions in the universe. A typical burst releases more energy in less than a tenth of a second than the Sun will release in its entire life of 10 billion years. The Great Wall is a structure that contradicts theories about the evolution of the universe. The structure is 10 billion light-years away, which means that we see the Great Wall as it was 10 billion years ago. The universe itself is 13.8 billion years old. The 3.8 billion year span of time difference is too short for this mammoth structure to form. Even Ivan Horovath, the discoverer of the structure, says he has no idea how it formed in that amount of time. For now, the existence of the structure is still a mystery for cosmologists. Another concept says that the idea of the Big Bang might be proven false as a result of this incredible cosmic structure
