The Radcliffe Wave
The Radcliffe Wave is a gigantic structure that defines the shape of the Sun's local neighborhood in the Milky Way Galaxy. Its existence was first presented officially in a paper published in Nature on January 7, 2020. This website offers scientists, educators, and the interested public much more information about the "RadWave," as we like to call it. Please use this page to find publications and talks, visuals (images, interactives, and videos), history, team info, software, and data. And, if we forgot something, just let us know—and we'll try to include it in future updates!
