Scientists capture first ever image of dark matter web that connects galaxies
For the first time ever, scientists have captured an image of a dark matter bridge that connects galaxies, confirming the theory that galaxies are held together by a cosmic web.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo have been able to capture the first composite image of a dark matter bridge that connects galaxies together. The composite image, which combines a number of individual images, confirms predictions that galaxies across the universe are tied together through a cosmic web connected by dark matter that has until …

The intergalactic medium unveiled: Cosmic Web Imager directly observes 'dim matter'
Astronomers have taken unprecedented images of the intergalactic medium -- the diffuse gas that connects galaxies throughout the universe -- with the Cosmic Web Imager. Until now, the structure of the IGM has mostly been a matter for theoretical speculation. However, with observations from the Cosmic Web Imager, deployed on the Hale 200-inch telescope at Palomar Observatory, astronomers are obtaining our first three-dimensional pictures of the IGM.
