What Is The Great Attractor?

The common idea is that we are being pulled towards a massive gravitational anomaly, known as the Great Attractor, and we were joined with Lister Staveley-Smith, Science Director at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) at the University of Western Australia, to learn more about this mysterious entity.
