There's been some question whether the structure of the universe shows any evidence of repeating fractal clusters at increasingly large scales, or whether its more randomly distributed. For example, stars clump together to form galaxies, galaxies clump together to form clusters and superclusters. A new study shows that at extremely large scales, the distribution of galaxies looks pretty smooth and evenly spread out throughout the universe with no sign of fractal patterns. While the universe may contain features that are fractal, the universe itself is not fractal.
