  • First observation of gas filaments, linking a cluster of galaxies 12bn light years away, provides new insights for theories about the formation of our universe.
  • This finding adds to the theory that, after the big bang, hydrogen gas creates huge threads across space, and galaxies form in clusters of these threads.
  • The observation proved this, as researchers noticed supermassive black holes and galaxies with active star formation at the intersections of hydrogen threads.
