You Are Here, Part III: The Universe Dr Nicholas Tothill Leaving our own Galaxy behind, we travel out into the Universe, looking for the biggest objects of all. Clusters, superclusters, walls of galaxies and voids full of nothing, all pushed and pulled around by mysterious dark matter and even-more-mysterious dark energy. As we travel outwards, we travel back in time towards the beginning of the universe, and ask, 'what happens now...?'
