The map of the universe that could help confirm Einstein’s theory of General Relativity: Stunning image reveals voids and superclusters in unprecedented detail

Astrophysicists have discovered the key to precisely measuring the ‘stretching’ effect of the universe’s dark energy, helping to solve a long-standing cosmological mystery.
Using the largest map ever created of these features, researchers have developed a new way to detect the imprints of the Sachs-Wolfe effect on the cosmic microwave background, the ‘relic radiation’ left behind from the Big Bang.
This phenomenon describes the temperature differences in CMB light based on where it came from, either voids or superclusters, but earlier analyses have found it to be much larger than expected.... read more
