Astronomers have found a "deserted" region on the edge of the universe

A group of researchers from the University of California announced the discovery of a "desert" region on the border of the observable universe. It contains two to three times smaller galaxies than the current cosmological models predict. We see this region as it was 12 billion years ago.
Astronomers have found a “desert” region on the edge of the Universe of the Universe, radiation, after, dark, stars, galaxies.

The find was made during a study addressing the problem of "dark ages." Immediately after the Big Bang, there were no bright sources of light in the Universe, and the entire space was filled with clouds of neutral hydrogen that prevented ultraviolet radiation. The epoch of the dark ages ended after the formation of the first stars, Their powerful radiation gradually reionized the gas clouds surrounding them, making the Universe transparent to light.
The ultraviolet radiation of the brightest and hottest stars in the early Universe is distributed extremely unevenly.Scientists have two main versions explaining this phenomenon. According to the first, galaxies were not distributed as uniformly in the Universe as it is considered. According to the second, for some reason, the process of cooling individual regions was much faster than the theory predicts.

To find the answer, astronomers used the Subaru telescope to observe one of these dark regions with a diameter of about 500 million light years. After analyzing the data, the researchers concluded that it really is a cosmic desert containing a small number of galaxies. Therefore, the process of reionization in this region was much slower than in other parts of the Universe.
