Interesting, and in a relatively high-impact journal here, but the caveat of "newest research is often the wrongest research" applies :)

The article said:

The newly-found ring-shaped feature is large enough to contradict the cosmological principle (CP), which sets a theoretical limit of 1.2 billion light years for the largest structures. The researchers assume that the ring could be a projection of a spheroidal structure and we see it nearly face-on because of the small variations of GRB distances around the object's center.


Could be an illusion, could be a larger structure due to a larger age of the universe, could be some other phenomenon. I await another exciting not-so-slow news day ;)
