However, the discovery of these extremely large structures is forcing the astronomers to re-think the popular theories of how the Universe got its current form, starting from a more-or-less uniform distribution of energy after the Big Bang , according to the IUCAA. Researchers have been referring to the (http://www.cosmotography.com/images/galaxy_formation_and_evolution.html) Dark Energy hypothesis since 1990s to indicate the expansion of the universe at an accelerating rate.
