Astronomers have discovered in the sky a giant Wall to the South pole

Astronomers have discovered a supercluster of Laniakea giant filamentous structure known as the Wall of the South pole, reported in a paper in the journal Astrophysical Journal. In size it is comparable to the great wall Sloan — third the size of a set of superclusters of galaxies known in the Universe today.

Over the last 40 years, it became known that galaxies in the Universe are not Autonomous, and combined into larger structures. So, the milky way along with the Andromeda galaxy, the galaxy of the Triangle and their satellites are part of the Local group, and that, in turn, the Virgo supercluster, which is attracted to the gravitational anomaly in the centre of Laniakea called the Great attractor. The Great attractor is attracted much more massive will versoblend Chaplito which our galaxy is heading at a speed of 660 kilometers per second (more about the structures in the Universe can be read in the material “O great repulsive!”).

Now astronomer Daniel Pomarede (Daniel Pomarède) from the University Paris-Saclay announced the opening of another major structure, galactic filament , the Wall of the South pole. It is the most dense part of it lies in the direction of the South pole of the Earth — after which it got its name. Structure, the light from which it comes to us 500 million years, is located directly behind the supercluster of Laniakea and is on the Ecliptic about 200 degrees of arc greater than a semicircle, receding far into the Northern sky.
