Instructions and Help about Will Form 8815 Void

Our galaxy is in the middle of nowhere. We are regular Joe's rocking the boat at the redneck galaxy club. The universe seems chaotic, but it's not actually as bad as you think. There's quite a bit of order. 20% of our universe is made of filaments like these. The other 80% of it is voids of mostly empty space, super clusters, galaxies, planets, galactic dust. Everything is either densely packed into a filament or in a lonely void. Some researchers are saying our Milky Way galaxy might exist smack dab in the middle of one of the largest voids of them all. We could be living in the middle of nowhere, which is unusual for a galaxy. It's like we're living in the universal boonies. Most other galaxies are over there in the cities. So alone. As scary as this may sound, the researchers seem to think it's not that big of a deal. It sounds like because we're further away from the filaments, our night sky is a bit darker, but other than that, not much else is different. There is something big that could come from this study though. If it's proven, our universe is massive and it's constantly expanding. Just the observable cosmos reaches about 46 billion light-years, but astronomers have been struggling for decades to figure out the exact rate of universal expansion, also known as the Hubble constant. There are two methods to measure this: to look at nearby bright stars that are moving away from us or to look at the cosmic microwave background radiation left over from the Big Bang and see how fast that is moving. It's actually a pretty big debate because these two methods don't give you the same constant. This new research suggests that because we're in a...
