  • Exhibition Text

    • If the Hayden Sphere is the size of the Virgo Supercluster of galaxies, then this model is the relative size of the Local Group of galaxies.

      Our Local Group is a collection of a few dozen galaxies, bound together by their mutual gravity, located near the outskirts of the Virgo Supercluster.
