Cosmic Voids: Vast Empty Spaces Between Galaxy | ScienceMonk

cosmic voids

Cosmic voids are vast empty spaces between galaxy filaments (galaxy filaments are the largest known structures in the universe) which contain few or no galaxies. The recent study in “Evidence for Large-scale Fluctuations in the Metagalactic Ionizing Background Near Redshift Six” revealed that the intergalactic space was loaded up with gas that was much less transparent than it presently is, with variations from place to place, about 12 billion years prior. 

Continental Drift | The Basic Theory Of Plate Tectonics | Geology

continental drift

Have you ever imagined, our Earth becoming a global village having no more different continents but just one? Alternatively, will you believe if I say that Antarctica was once a warm landmass with dense tropical rainforests growing on it? If the answer is no, then probably you should explore this fascinating theory of Continental drift because appearances can be deceptive in the field of geology.

On a starry night directing your telescope towards the south of Orion belt, will reveal a cloudy object which is nothing but a nebula. Probably from its appearance only, nebula got its name as, ‘Nebula’ is Latin for word cloud or mist. It will not be an exaggeration if we call it one of the spectacular objects holding many secrets of the universe.
