Galaxies Trapped in the Universe's Web


Recommended Posts

Although the galaxies we see in the night sky seem randomly strewn across the heavens, they're actually organized into large scale structures that look like cosmic filaments. These filaments and walls surround huge bubble-like voids that lack any large structures at all. European astronomers measured the orientation of thousands of galaxies, and found that many are oriented in the direction of these linear filaments.
