The American Astronomical Society, meeting in Arlington, Virginia are intrigued by evidence of some kind of a "great attractor", an immense gravitational magnet, pulling powerfully at our milky way and at more than a hundred other galaxies. It is causing a dramatic distortion in the all expansion of the universe. It is tugging at galaxies from across more than a hundred million light years of space, pulling them toward a lump of something, something very dense, for which the scientists have no name except "The Great Attractor". Until now accepted theory has been that the universe is expanding. Now there is evidence it is falling inward toward "The Great Attractor." You and I know who "The Great Attractor" is.
