Analysis of galaxies shows local supercluster to be 100 times larger than previously thought. 
Ellipticity, Its Origin and Progression in Comoving Galaxies
Conventional cosmology is based on (i) the Edwin Hubble discovery of the relationship between redshifted light and cosmic distance; (ii) the fact that "space" expansion causes spectral redshifting;Expand

The Laniakea supercluster of galaxies
TLDR
A map of structure made using a catalogue of peculiar velocities is reported, finding locations where peculiar velocity flows diverge, as water does at watershed divides, and defining a supercluster to be the volume within such a surface, which is the extent of their home superclusters, which the authors call Laniakea.
