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.
