An international team of astronomers led by the Hamburg Observatory made the most detailed images of the largest cosmic shock waves ever observed.

The observations are based on data from the MeerKAT radio telescope in South Africa and have been published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.

Cosmic shock waves are created when clusters of galaxies collide.

This image shows one of the two shock waves observed in the galaxy cluster Abell 3667.

It is about 60 times the size of the Milky Way.

The wave has been blasting through space at near-light-speed for 200 million years.

Located about 730 million light-years from Earth, Abell 3667 is a galaxy cluster in chaos.

Actually composed of two clusters (or groups) of galaxies colliding into one another, Abell 3667 contains more than 550 individual galaxies slowly stirring into one big cosmic gumbo.
