Description

J. Richard Gott was among the first cosmologists to propose that the structure of our universe is like a sponge made up of clusters of galaxies intricately connected by filaments of galaxies - a magnificent structure now called the "cosmic web" and mapped extensively by teams of astronomers. Here is his gripping insiders account of how a generation of undaunted theorists and observers solved the mystery of the architecture of our cosmos. Gott tells the stories of how his own path to a solution began with a high-school science project when he was eighteen, and how he and astronomer Mario Juri measured the Sloan Great Wall of Galaxies, a filament of galaxies that, at 1.37 billion light-years in length, is one of the largest structures in the universe.
