The visible universe
A critical assessment of the observed large scale structure will be presented, starting from the Local Group of galaxies within 5 Mpc, out to z~0.1. Traditional and new probes will be shown to support the standard paradigm of structure formation, but not without raising a few eyebrows. Mild tweaks will be discusses as well as potential constraints on alternative theories of gravity.
