Astronomers on Wednesday announced that, through the European Southern Observatory near Munich, they have discovered the brightest galaxy in the early universe.
And that's cool. But this is a sports site, so why are we writing about it?
Because -- as the headline surely let you know -- they named the newly discovered galaxy CR7. And CR7 not only stands for Cosmos Redshift 7, but Cristiano Ronaldo and his No. 7.
No, this isn't a joke on our part; the astronomers really were inspired by the Portuguese Real Madrid star.
Here is an artist's impression of how it looks:
Take that, Lionel Messi! All Ronaldo's Argentina/Barcelona rival has -- based on a cursory search of the International Star Registry -- is one measly star!
That is, until a few more performances like this one cause us to rename our own galaxy the Messi Way.
