    Exclamation IC 1101; Largest Galaxy Ever Discovered

    Diameter of Milky Way; 100,000 Light Years.


    ---and---

    Diameter of Galaxy IC 1101; 6 MILLION Light Years.


    IC 1101 is a supergiant lenticular galaxy at the center of the Abell 2029 galaxy cluster. It is 1.07 billion light years away in the constellation of Serpens and is classified as a cD class of galaxy.

    SIZE

    The galaxy has a diameter of approximately 6 million light years, which makes it currently (as of 2011) the largest known galaxy in terms of breadth. It is the central galaxy of a massive cluster containing a mass (mostly dark matter) of roughly 100 trillion Suns. Being more than 50 times the size of the Milky Way and 2000 times as massive, if it was in place of our galaxy, it would swallow up the Large Magellanic Cloud, Small Magellanic Cloud, Andromeda Galaxy, and Triangulum Galaxy. IC 1101 owes its size to many collisions of much smaller galaxies about the size of the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies.

    There is no proof that Dark Matter exists. Dark Matter is a hypothesis. It is brought in wherever extra gravity is required to clear up some discrepancy in the cosmological data. And it gets even worse. In some cases, gravitational lensing is used to prop up the theory behind an anomaly, but since lensing requires a lot of gravity, Dark Matter theory is used to provide the quantity of mass needed to explain the lensing effect which is only proposed to exist. So Dark Matter is a fantasy on top of a fantasy. I'm not saying that lensing doesn't exist, but it is sometimes used to explain why some intergalactic objects appear closer than they really are (as in the case of a highly red-shifted object that's just too close for comfort to us). It never occurs to cosmologists that perhaps, just perhaps, the objects really are that close, and no lensing explanation is required - and thus no so-called Dark Matter.

    You may say that I'm speculating, but so are they. It just so happens that once cosmologists start questioning their methods - these Copernican epicycles upon epicycles - then they are logically forced to question all the way down. They will have to question red-shift, and ultimately, the Big Bang.

    That's amazing! I love that kind of stuff.

    I wonder what it looks like now.

    True; there are various scientific fallacies being passed around, I would think.

    Modern cosmology begins with the absurd notion that something can come from nothing.

    Honestly; absolute rubbish. Those who'd originated theoretical nonsense like that should seriously die.

    I'm pretty sure they are dead by now.

    Then would you please enlighten me? Did the universe begin with a Big Bang or not?

    According to the current data, yes it did.
