The lead researcher of the study Brent Tully says, "We live in something called 'the cosmic web,' where galaxies are connected in tendrils separated by giant voids. We have a new way of defining large-scale structures from the velocities of galaxies rather than just looking at their distribution in the sky. Tully is an astronomer at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.

The galaxies in the space are found in a clump in groups and even there are dozens of galaxies in it. Ultimately, all such groups together create a massive cluster and there may be hundreds of galaxies in such clusters. All those galaxies interconnected to one another like pearls in a necklace.
Now, according to the new 3D map of the cosmic web as developed by Tully and colleagues, the Milky Way galaxy resides in the outskirts of the Laniakea Supercluster and this distance is about 520 million light-years wide.
