There is a 330 million light-year hole near the earth, accounting for 1/280 of the diameter of the entire observable universe
Imagine our Milky Way galaxy, if there is almost no matter within the range of 165 million light years around, there are no galaxies, no stars, no planets, no dust and gas, some are nothingness and openness, humans have nothing to do with the universe What about cognition? Scientists believe that if this is the case, even with a more powerful telescope, we will see only endless darkness. At least until the 1960s, we will not know the existence of other galaxies in the universe. We may Always thought we were the center of the universe, even our galaxy is the universe itself.
However, in the universe, there really is such a The huge hole is in the direction of Pastel constellation, which is only 700 million light-years away, and its diameter reaches a horrible 330 million Light years-0.35%of the diameter of the entire observable universe. In such a huge hole, scientists have not found any material or galaxy in it for a long time. This is undoubtedly extremely frightening and creepy. Why is there such a hole in the universe, and it is not far away from us- —Compared to its size and the vastness of the universe. Scientists have named this hole the Big Void (or Big Void) or the Waffle Hole, and have been studying it for decades.
Until 1990 of the last century, as more and more With the emergence of powerful telescopes, scientists have discovered the first galaxy in this terrifying giant cosmic cavity. To date, scientists have discovered about 60 galaxies in total. Some people may have no idea about this. The matter in the universe should be evenly distributed. In other places in the universe, there should actually be about 10,000 galaxies in such a vast space; in such a huge space, there is only a little bit of matter, It is totally incredible.
Some scientists believe that there are actually more in this hole The galaxies have not yet been discovered by us. The total number may reach 2,000, but this hole is indeed the largest open area known in the universe. It may be formed by the merger of some small holes, just like some small soap bubbles merged into a large Soap bubbles. Other scientists believe that the hole may not be very empty, and it may be filled with dark matter.
Fortunately, our galaxy is not in such a hole Otherwise, the understanding of the universe by human civilization will be greatly delayed. The construction of advanced large telescopes may be shelved because there is nothing to see in the surrounding space. We may still be proud to believe that we are the center of the entire universe, there is no Big Bang, there is no singularity, the diameter of the universe It is 100,000 light years. What is outside of the universe? No one knows, maybe a dark wall. The next door is another galaxy enclosed by another dark room. It is a variety of toys placed in a drawer of some kind of giant creature.
