Giant gathering of galaxies discovered hiding on far side of Milky Way

SUPER FIND  The newly discovered Vela supercluster (VSC) of galaxies is partly obscured by the Milky Way, as shown in this map of the sky. Our galaxy stretches across the center of the map. Colors denote distances to other galaxies; green is closer, and yellow and then orange are farther away. ~~ T. Jarrett/University of Cape Town


Marlene Dumas - Born in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1953, Marlene Dumas was raised on her family’s vineyard just beyond the city limits in the semi-rural Kuils River region. As a student of painting at the University of Cape Town’s Michaelis School of Fine Arts during the early 1970s, Dumas gained exposure to the decade’s preoccupation with conceptualism and art theory.
