    ​The Milky Way galaxy is currently racing through space at about 2 million km/h on a journey towards the Shapley Supercluster. But we’re not just being pulled in this direction: Astronomers have now discovered a huge extragalactic void, called the Dipole Repeller, that’s pushing us away.
  • A new study has revealed that the Milky Way is a member of a group of local galaxies interconnected within a larger supercluster made up of a myriad other galaxies, all interlinked within a tenuous web of filaments many thousands of light years long.
