There’s more news on that weird sucking from outside the visible universe. This was first noted by Alexander Kashlinsky at Goddard Space Flight Center and I wrote about it here. The team has now tracked the flow to twice the distance reported back in 2008—to 2.5 billion light years away. This video shows the flow for different distances from the Earth. Unfortunately they don’t know yet for sure whether the flow is away from us or towards us. Everyone assumes it is away and there is some data to say that this assumption is true. At least if it is flowing away from us we can blame it on something outside our light horizon, something really really big. The galaxy clusters studied are travelling at a million miles per hour. Read about the new data here.
