Quotes

...years that the rings were about 30 feet thick, but based on the new images, scientists now think that they're more than 2 miles deep in some spots. "Isn't that the most outrageous thing you could imagine? It truly is like something out of science fiction" said Carolyn Porco, leader of the Cassini imaging team
Lead author John Bochanski, of Haverford College in Pennsylvania, said the distance between the two stars is too big to explain. "To put it in perspective, when the light from ULAS J0015+01 left the star, our early human ancestors were just starting to make fires here on Earth" , affirmed Bochanski
...light-years from Earth, respectively, making them both about five times more distant than a satellite galaxy known as the Large Magellanic Cloud. "The distances to these two stars are almost too large to comprehend" study lead author John Bochanski, of Haverford
"Roughly speaking, the gravitational potential changes the energy of a virtual electron-positron pair, which in turn produces a small change in the energy of a photon,” Franson says. “This results in a small correction to the angular frequency of a photon and thus its velocity.” He describes the equivalent effects on neutrinos as “negligibly small in comparison”."
