Giant voids of the cosmos are helping scientists make more precise maps of the universe. This simulated view of the large-scale structure of the universe shows the vast cosmic web of galaxies, as well as the dark, empty expanses of the cosmic voids in between.

The Cosmic Web, or: What does the universe look like at a VERY large scale - Everything is connected

Cosmic Web“The concept of the cosmic web—viewing the universe as a set of discrete galaxies held together by gravity—is deeply ingrained in cosmology. Yet, little is known about architecture of this network or its characteristics. Our research used...

This stunning spherical image manages to cram in the entire universe, including our Solar System at the centre.  The mind-boggling image also packs in the outer planets, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Cetauri star and the cosmic web along with the Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy and other nearby galaxies

The Cosmic Web, or: What does the universe look like at a VERY large scale? The images at 1:36 or so, and then toward the end of the video, look so much like a neural network that it's a little bit scary...and amazing! It also makes you think about so many possibilities.Life is, indeed, a mystery!

This deep image shows the nebula (cyan) extending across 2 million light-years that was discovered around the bright quasar UM287 (at the center of the nebula). The energetic radiation of the quasar makes the surrounding intergalactic gas glow, revealing the morphology and physical properties of a cosmic web filament. The image was obtained at the W. M. Keck Observatory. (Credit: S. Cantalupo, UCSC)
