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!

The Cosmic Web: What does the Universe look like at a VERY large scale? The Millennium Simulation featured in this clip was run in 2005 by the Virgo Consortium, an international group of.

Artist's impression illustrating the technique of Lyman-alpha tomography: as light from distant background galaxies (yellow arrows) travel through the Universe towards Earth, they are imprinted by the absorption signatures from hydrogen gas tracing in the foreground cosmic web. By observing a number of background galaxies in a small patch of the sky, astronomers were able to create a 3D map of the cosmic web using a technique similar to medical computer tomography (CT) scans.

We've long thought that galaxies grew fat by devouring gas from a mesh of dark matter called the cosmic web – now we've seen it in action

New observations with ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile have revealed alignments over the largest structures ever discovered in the Universe. A European research team has found that the rotation axes of the central supermassive black holes in a sample of quasars are parallel to each other over distances of billions of light-years. The team has also found that the rotation axes of these quasars tend to be aligned with the vast structures in the cosmic web in which they reside. (ESO)

NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day 2016 November 8 The Cosmic Web of the Tarantula Nebula It is the largest and most complex star forming region in the entire galactic neighborhood. Located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite galaxy.

The biggest thing in the universe is not a star, a black hole or even a galaxy. It’s the cosmic web. This term is used to refer to an endless scaffolding of galaxy clusters surrounded by dark matter. Astronomers believe the star web to resemble a three dimensional spider web. The size of the cosmic web is so great that it can hardly be imagined. If you think of the Milky Way as a seed, then the cosmic web would be an entire football stadium filled with such seeds.

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

This Is A Map Of The Entire Universe, Squeezed Into One Mind-Boggling Image

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)
