Repost-‘More On “Dark Flow” From’

“Patches of matter in the universe seem to be moving at very high speeds and in a uniform direction that can’t be explained by any of the known gravitational forces in the observable universe”

It seems to be caused by something more powerful than a black hole…a leftover bubble from the big bang, further away from us than we could ever see?…

“In fact there’s a fundamental limit to how much of the universe we could ever observe, no matter how advanced our visual instruments.”

“There may be parts of the universe that are farther away…but we can’t see farther than light could travel over the entire age of the universe”

How do you explain that many thousands of galaxies are moving rapidly away from us toward points unseen, seeming to contradict the general expansion of the universe?

More from Scientific American here.  The publication of the abstract here in the Astrophysical Journal Letters.
