Largest 3-D Map Of The Universe To Date Unearthed

The largest three-dimensional map of the universe to date has been created through the work of more than 100 scientists from more than 30 institutions.

The map, revealed by the study called the extended baryon Oscillation spectroscopic survey (eBOSS), launched 20 years ago, offers detailed measurements of more than 2 million galaxies. Also, according to the map, the expansion of the universe begins to accelerate 6 billion years ago.

Astronomer Ashley Ross, from the research team, said: “one of the things we want to learn is the development of dark energy over time, which accelerates the expansion of the universe.”
