Impressive Visualization of the Universe

The cosmic web, the universe as a set of discrete galaxies held together by gravity, is deeply ingrained in cosmology.

Yet, little is known about architecture of this network or its characteristics.

These three interactive visualizations help us imagine the cosmic web, show us differences between the models, and give us insight into the fundamental structure of the universe.
