Universe’s largest magnetic fields discovered

The universe is a big place populated by big things. Galaxy clusters — massive structures formed over millions, or even billions of years, as smaller galaxies move closer due to gravitational attraction — are among the biggest objects in the observable universe. However, according to a study...
