Bengaluru is the home of the company. With astrophysicists disclosing the details of the first 7.5 million galaxies out of 35 million, a group of international scientists has built the most accurate 3D model of the universe to date. The stunning image displays the cosmic network that has been present throughout the galaxy for billions of light-years.
And this is simply the beginning of the seven-month-long research. The research that will assist scientists to explain dark energy, which accounts for around 68 percent of our universe and is the force that drives its expansion, is expected to take five years to complete.
The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) has been used by scientists to carry out the experiment. They developed a component comprised of 5000 optical fibers that expand the telescope’s field of vision. Every month, the initiative adds approximately 1 million galaxies. Once completed with data spanning up to eleven billion years, the map is expected to help scientists better understand the origins of the universe and its future trajectory.
