Check out models of the cosmic web that connects galaxies
Popular Science - 04/25/2016
Cosmologists have long thought that the universe is made up of galaxies tethered together by gravity. But what on earth does this ‘cosmic web’ actually look like?
That’s what researchers at Northeastern University’s Center For Complex Network Research have been working on. They created three computer models of possible links between 24,000 galaxies, and then compared them to the actual night sky. Their research was published in ArXiv earlier this month, but a more visually appealing product of their research is described on the lab’s website.
