Physics Haters Rejoice

says Lumo. It seems that CSL-1 turned out not to be a Cosmic String.

The mighty eye of Hubble looked, and found a pair of faint elliptical galaxies.

My guess is that actual physics haters will probably never hear, or care about this news, but I'm a bit puzzled. I thought it was supposed to be a candidate superstring, grown to enormous size, rather than a plain old Cosmic String, which is much less exotic, if equally unobserved (so far).

Meanwhile, us non-haters of physics can take some comfort in the fact that we haven't yet landed at that bleak Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
