A new matter map of the universe reveals a possible hole in our understanding of the cosmos

Scientists have drawn up one of the most accurate matter maps of the universe, and it shows that there may be something missing in our best model of the cosmos.

Created by combining data from two telescopes that observe different types of light, the new map has revealed that the universe is less “lumpy” than previous models had predicted – a potential sign that the vast cosmic web that connects galaxies is less understood than scientists thought.
