This one is for the astronomy people out there. A few years ago, during a routine study of the night sky, astronomers stumbled into a big hole, literally. Finding a small void is nothing new, and several small ones have been recorded in the past.

What makes this extraordinary is the sheer size of it? Imagine an area over one billion light years across with no stars, planets, galaxies, black holes, dark matter, just absolutely nothing. It is over 1000 times bigger than anything previously seen or expected.

Astronomers have been researching this void since they first found it and are not much closer to an answer. What they can agree on is that a void this large is not normal, what is still unknown is why it is so big. Could the void be close enough to an area with more gravity and mass that over billions of years, the empty spot lost its mass to the stronger one? Could it be an anomaly that we just haven’t seen before? Is it possible that there is matter inside that we can’t see? So many questions, but no scientific answers which leaves this empty space in the unexplained mystery category.
