Study shows galaxy exists in a huge void

A scientific study which claims to show the Milky Way and its neighbouring galaxies exist in a celestial void, may have solved a problem that has puzzled scientists trying to establish the rate at which the universe is expanding.

The measurement of the rate at which the universe is expanding, described by a unit called the Hubble Constant, has been inconsistent between a technique which uses the light emitted from the explosion of a nearby supernovae at a known distance, compared with another based on cosmic microwave background — the leftover light from the Big Bang.

But Mr Hoscheit and Ms Barger argued it may be explained by the difference in gravitational pull being exerted between regions of low and high concentrations of matter inside and outside our galactic neighbourhood.
