The renderings of our Milky Way galaxy show a tiny speck in midst of other galaxies and colossal voids.
We know where everything is headed – at least in the cosmic sense.
- In Honolulu, a veteran cosmologist has meticulously charted the large-scale structure of our universe.
- We now have the most complete view ever of the universe.
- The 3-D maps are called Cosmicflows and the universe takes on a startling new appearance.
- The scale is so huge, galaxies all across are literally dots in the render.
- Literally, no stars are visible in this map. What pops out, in the end, is the master plan of our universe.
- A physical record of everything that has happened on a cosmic scale since the inception of BIG-BANG.
- The map has four main elements, clusters of galaxies; filaments, sheets, and voids.
- Voids are the empty spaces between everything in the universe.
- The map doesn’t only show where the galaxies have been but also where they are headed and how they move.
