The Universe ~ The Biggest Things in Space

Today on Far Future Horizons we are going to explore the superlatives of our grand Cosmos. Today we are proud to present the – “The Biggest Things in Space” featuring, well the biggest of the big: planets, stars, and galaxies, with a few gargantuan black holes thrown in for good measure.

A look at the biggest things in the universe, such as the cosmic web which connects galaxies together along threads of dark matter or the Lyman-alpha blob which is a bubble containing countless galaxies. Also we take a look at super-galaxies, super massive black holes, radio lobes, voids and  vast foam-like structure sometimes called the "cosmic web".

Then there are super galaxy clusters which are hundreds of galaxies merged together due to cosmic collisions.
