"It looks like something to be taken seriously," said Brent Tully, a University of Hawaii astronomer. Tully said "astronomers may eventually find a few cosmic structures in the void, but it would still be nearly empty."
Tully goes on to explain that "holes in the universe probably occur when the gravity from areas with bigger mass pull matter from less dense areas.

"I'd like to think this is the first of more ventures along the same line," said University of Hawaii astrophysicist R. Brent Tully, who was treated to a public presentation of the work for his 70th birthday, in Paris, a week ago. "I think we're learning how to do it. I think the next time around we'll do it better."
Tully worked with a team including Helene Courtois of the University of Lyon, who narrates, and whose son, Jules, accompanies her with an original piano composition.
"I don't know anybody else who's tried to put something on paper," Tully said.
(Tully is best known for the Tully-Fisher relation, which correlates a spiral galaxy's luminosity and rotational speed, and was published with J. Richard Fisher in 1977.
"We actually don't know how big the whole universe is," said Tully. "What we talk about is the universe within our horizon, the travel time of light, and that's been traveling to us since 14 billion years - actually, in that time the universe has expanded, so we have access to something like 40 billion light-years."
But that's just what we could potentially see with all our sophisticated space-based telescopes and massive terrestrial arrays. "We're still picking at the depths of space," said Tully.
So what Tully and his team have boxed is the local universe, represented in terms better suited for an expanding universe - velocities. "In the maps that you're seeing there, that's really only going out a little beyond 3,000 kilometers per second," he said.
Though that translates to about 120 million light-years, consider that the speed of light is 100 times that outermost velocity. "So we're only going 1% of the way out," said Tully.

Some of the data comes from Brent Tully, an Alliance Cosmology team member at the University of Hawaii.
In total, the NCSA team rendered about four minutes of visualizations from the data provided by Tully, Ostriker and Bode, utilizing more than 53,000 images at a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels.

R. Brent Tully (Executive Producer) is an astronomer at the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii. He is best known as the co-originator of the Tully-Fisher relation, which led to the current preferred estimate of the size and age of the universe. Dr Tully was also the Executive Producer on the recent PBS NOVA show "The Runaway Universe."
