Large Scale Structure of the Universe
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 43

Description:
Galaxies are not uniformly distributed in space. On large scales the Universe displays coherent structure, with galaxies residing in groups and clusters, which lie at the intersections of long filaments of galaxies. Vast regions of relatively empty space, known as voids, contain very few galaxies and span the volume in between these structures.
