Summary
J. Richard Gott was among the first cosmologists to propose that the structure of our universe is like a sponge made up of clusters of galaxies intricately connected by filaments of galaxies. This magnificent structure is now called the Cosmic Web and has been mapped extensively by teams of astronomers. Here is his gripping insider account of how a generation of undaunted theorists and observers solved the mystery of the architecture of our cosmos
