- 12. Where are we?
- Just to give you some idea of how the Great Galactic Wall relates to us, here you see it, 400 million light years away from the centre of the Virgo Super Cluster. In the Super Cluster in a tiny dot called the Milky Way. In this galaxy that is ONLY 100,000 light years across is a structure called the Orion Arm. In there is the Solar System, and a small planet called Earth. If you look very carefully you will see me waving.
- So we have a structure that is so large it cannot be formed in the lifetime of the universe. But guess what? In 1990 a structure was found that is 10 times larger.
