- 9. Across the Border-the Great Galactic Wall
- In 1989 Margaret J.Geller and John P.Huchra of the Harvard- Smithsonian Center for Astro-physics discovered something much larger than the Virgo Super Cluster. It was larger than any other Super Cluster. It was North of the Milky Way. It is 8 times wider than the Virgo Super Cluster. Remember the Virgo Super Cluster is 60 million light years. They called it the ‘Great Wall’, and it’s 500 million light years across.
- Each of the thousands of points represent a galaxy NOT A STAR! They are in a computer, and by adjusting up to eight different controls the wall can be viewed from any angle.
