The cosmic emptiness exists and we are close

Researchers in Hawaii manage to recreate a 3D map of the cosmic voids that we have closest to the Milky Way.

The universe is unimaginable, spatially speaking. A vast territory where all their bodies gravitate and orbit between them, as if it were a logical mechanism. All in due time and without deviating an iota of its proposed and defined path.

From a structural point of view, the universe contains both areas full of planetary and galactic life, and areas where there is nothing, absolute voids where darkness reigns in space. The most absolute nothing.

Nothing and everything, one step away
To get an idea of ​​how the universe is formed, we are going to give the example of the roads, the highways that take us from one place to another. These elements, the roads, would be all those points that make up the life of the universe itself. Where are the galaxies? While all the lands that are on both sides of the road, those voids, are those that comprise the universal nothingness. Where, in effect, the total absence of elements makes them desert territories, galactically speaking.

A researcher at the Institute of Astronomy of the University of Hawaii has managed to make a 3D map of the areas near the Milky Way with full detail of the places, and the non-places, that are around our galaxy.

This work is part of a recent publication in The Astrophysical Journal. This desert area was consecrated a few years ago with the name of Local Void, but it has not been until now when it has been possible to determine with exactitude its geographical place.

One of the most important points of the study is the one that speaks of the so-called gravitational pulls. This question is about the separation of galaxies, which in addition to moving away due to the expansion of the universe, also move thanks to these gravitational pulls that are caused by adjacent galaxies.

In turn, galaxies tend to move towards areas with large amounts of mass, therefore, it means that the empty areas of the universe are getting larger and larger.
