"The Local Void" by Johan Hidding
(Video 40 secs, 2014) The Local Void is a big expanse of empty space, right at our cosmic doorstep. The presence Earth, of our humble selves, is marked on the map with a BLUE sign ‘HOME’. The radius of the gray circle is 45 Mpc/h (Megaparsec per hour), that is approximately 150 million lightyears! This video shows only a part of the Local Void. The radius of this sphere (map) is ~50 Mpc, or ~160 million lightyears. The BLUE signs show the names of known (nearby) clusters of galaxies. The Local Void is notorious for its emptiness, there are almost no galaxies found inside. This rendering was created by Johan Hidding using the Adhesion model on reconstructed initial conditions by Francisco Kitaura & Steffen Hess.
