Astrophysicists at the University of Waterloo have been able to capture the first composite image of a dark matter bridge that connects galaxies together.
The composite image, which combines a number of individual images, confirms predictions that galaxies across the universe are tied together through a cosmic web connected by dark matter that has until now remained unobservable.
