We study the multiplicity and morphologies of large
underdense regions of the Universe (the so-called VOIDS) using a
differential geometry approach. Our results strongly suggest that
prolateness is the dominant morphological feature of voids in our
universe. We further compare our observational results with those
expected in different cosmological models and find that a flat low-Ù(m)
CDM model with ëow normalization ó(8)=0.83 performs best.
