Default Laniakea: Our home supercluster



For the first time, scientists have pinpointed where our galaxy stands amongst thousands of other galaxies in our home supercluster. The new map shows beautiful feathery strings linked together with the Milky Way galaxy placed on the edge of the newly named Laniakea supercluster, home to 100,000 other galaxies.


We've seen the Milky Way in superclusters before but not like this. The map of Laniakea, which means 'immeasurable heaven' in Hawaiian, shows which galaxies are being pulled by the same gravitational force thus revealing the galaxies that are tied to one another versus the galaxies that are just nearby one another.
