Space is a mysterious place and could contain  unknown massive structures that act like ‘giant vacuum cleaners that suck  galaxies towards them and tilt our universe’, according to one  expert.

He points out that cocooned on our relatively  comfortable planet, humans tend to think that we have quite a good notion of the  laws of the universe.

He claims that we believe we live on a small  planet orbiting the sun on the fringes of the Milky Way galaxy, which space  enthusiast David Glenn dubs a ‘thoroughly unremarkable galaxy’ in an infinite  universe.

Space is a mysterious place and could contain unknown  massive structures that act like ‘giant vacuum cleaners, titling our universe’,  according to space expert David Glenn. Pictured is a black hole, which is a  region of spacetime from which gravity prevents anything, including light, from  escaping

According to Glenn, most us us think ‘the  laws of physics do not change across the universe, even if what we are examining  is billions of light-years away.’

This theory is called the Copernican  Principle, upon which experts base most of their scientific knowledge about the  universe.

But, Glenn said it could be very  wrong.

 

Scientists have started to look more  carefully at the structure of the universe by analysing light from distant  galaxies to look at the speed and direction of moving objects like planets and  stars.

They have observed that rather than moving  apart as expected, some distant clusters of galaxies actually appear to be  caught in a space current, much like a river.

They have observed that rather than moving apart as expected, some  distant clusters of galaxies actually appear to be caught in a space current,  much like a river

And they are moving at incredibly fast  velocities or around two million miles an hour, along a certain path.

Scientists are unsure why but have labeled the  phenomenon ‘dark flow’.

To work out why this must be happening, Glenn  said scientists believe there must be ‘something huge out there.’

‘It would have to be so large that it is  bigger than anything scientists have seen in the known universe  before.’

Glenn added that it could be so massive it  could dwarf galactic clusters, which could be drawn towards it as if the huge  object were a giant space vacuum cleaner.

Scientists thinks that this mysterious  massive body is so large that is possibly titling our universe.

Scientists are unsure why galaxies are traveling in unusual directions but have labeled the phenomenon 'dark flow' 

Scientists are unsure why galaxies are traveling in  unusual directions but have labeled the phenomenon ‘dark flow’. It is a good job  there is not a giant unknown object close to the Milky Way or our neighbouring  Andromeda galaxy (pictured) or life as we know it would be changed

But it is currently impossible to explore the  theory, according to Glenn, because scientists have no technology capable of  seeing massive structures outside our observable universe, which has a radius of  around 45.7 billion light years.

He highlights the incredible idea that while  the universe has existed for 14 billion years, light from beyond the known  universe has not had enough time to reach our telescopes.

Some scientists have reportedly tried to  explain this phenomenon by suggesting that a neighbouring universe could be  causing the incredible pull and tilt.

While it might take several lifetimes for  scientists to develop the technology necessary to identify what these massive  objects are, they currently have the power to make experts question the  principle of universal uniformity, Glenn said
