Astronomers may have underestimated the tally of galaxies in some parts of the universe by as much as 90 percent,according to study reported on wednesday in nature.survays of the cosmos are based on a signature of ultravoilet light that turns out to be a poor indicator of what's out there,its authors said. in the case of very distant old galaxies,the telltale light may not reach earth as it is blocked by interstellar clouds of dust and gas-and as result,these galaxies are missed by the map-makers.

That could be one of the aspects. There is a lot of missing mass that has not been accounted for, based on current scientific theories - they attribute that missing mass to dark matter. This could be one of the explanations. Also, there could be myriad of universes theoretically, each black hole a gateway to its own universe. There has been talk of parallel universes and multi-dimensional universes having more than the three spatial and one time dimension that our part of the universe has. These universes could be occupying the same space or overlapping the space occupied by our known part of the universe. There is a lot of conjecture, sometime backed by mathematical and scientific theories. We human are still new born babes as far as our presence in space time and the knowledge discovered and assimilated by us over the last 20 millennia or so. There is a lot to be learnt about the mysteries of nature and the cosmos.
