A supercluster of IRAS galaxies behind the Great Attractor

Abstract:

THE dynamics of nearby galaxies support the existence of a large concentration of mass (the 'Great Attractor') in the Centaurus region at a redshift (z) between 0.012 and 0.015 (refs 1, 2). Scaramella et al.3 have suggested that a concentration of rich clusters of galaxies at z ≈ 0.05 in the Centaurus region may also have a significant role in perturbing the local Hubble flow. The existence of such overdense regions in the Universe would have a profound effect on ideas about the formation of ...
