THE EARLY UNIVERSE WAS SPONGY
-------------------------

New observations are supporting the theory that the early universe
looked like the inside of a sponge, with galaxies forming in clumps
along filaments. Using the Paranal Observatory in South America,
astronomers determined the distances to very distant galaxies, and
then plotted their positions on a three-dimensional map. These
observations help to lend support to current Big Bang theories and
the possibility that some dark matter makes up 95% of the mass of
the universe.
