You’ve probably heard the cliché that humans are just tiny specks in the universe. It might literally be true. A recent study gives more evidence to a theory that we’re actually tiny specks inside of a gigantic void of nothingness — and it’s the biggest known void of nothingness in the entire universe.

Here’s the theory: Imagine our entire universe as a block of Swiss cheese. The cheese itself is made of several “galactic filaments,” which are honeycomb-like network of multiple galaxies and stars. The holes in the block of cheese are cosmic voids, which literally are giant bubbles of near-nothingness — they might have a few galaxies in them, but they’re not dense.
