Cosmic void

"Using data from large-scale telescope surveys that count galaxies, the [University of Wisconsin-Madison] researchers concluded that the Milky Way exists near the center of a region that has fewer galaxies than other parts of the universe. They estimated the size of this void to have a radius of about 1 billion light-years. If they’re right, humans are living in the middle of the largest known void in the observable universe."
