A slice through the Universe

The positions in space of the galaxies identified by the VIPERS survey. This "slice" through the Universe shows where the galaxies lie as we look to ever greater distances in space — corresponding to looking further back in time. Data like these allow astronomers to study the evolution of galaxies as a constituent of the Universe, and tell us about how space itself evolves over time.
