Against a dark background

An abyss in space has been discovered that is a billion light years wide: about 1,000 times the volume of what would be expected in typical cosmic gaps.

"In essence, this latest study gives us a very elegant demonstration of the existence of dark energy in a way which is very convincing," (Professor Carlos Frenk, the director of the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University)


“Perhaps I should not hope to convey in mere words the unutterable hideousness that can dwell in absolute silence and barren immensity“ (HP Lovecraft)
