Lecture Title: Mapping the Universe
Abstract: The structure of the Universe on the largest scales tells us a great deal about its composition, geometry, expansion and ultimate fate. I will review our progress on mapping the large-scale structure of the Universe over the last few decades, show some of the most complete and largest maps we have ever made, and discuss the mysterious cosmological model that these maps have revealed.
