Yes, nice. Dark matter is not evenly distributed?

I like it, very chaotic.

I like to look out over a lake on a windy summer day when there is an over cast of darkness looming and you know a storm is moving in. When you can see the lightning in the distance and the waves are splashing in I can only imagine one thing and that's the way the universe begins.  -barbarian

I've seen that image before a few times. I get the feeling it's just prettifying the article and not actually very related to anything.

Yes, so have I or at least one very similar, It is just a snapshot of the quasar within the nebula 10 billion light years away. Can anyone please do the mathematical calculation on how long it would take to get there in earth years traveling light speed?

At any rate, I think you are right as far as a visual aid. Here is one under simulation.

That image was from the millennium simulation.

Still an interesting article though.
