The Shape of the Filament

This image shows the three-dimensional distribution of the observed LEGOs (the hexagons); the three space co-ordinates being determined by the position in the sky and the distance (from the measured redshift, see the text). They are clearly located along a rather narrow filament, here indicated by a hollow cylinder seen from the front (left) and from the side (right). The surrounding box is drawn to facilitate the 3-D comprehension - it measures approximately 8.8 x 8.8 x 13.3 million light-years.
