Universe Has An ENORMOUS Hole In It

An empty donut hole in the universe smacks of a cosmic wit. The hole is long, stretching like super spandex jeans one billion light years across. Imagine packing for a space tourist trip examining the void, traveling at the speed of light it would take a billion years to get to the other side. A rip in the universe lends itself to infinite questions with precious few details for answers. Like what's in the hole - nothing, no matter, it is a vast wasteland, just there.

Impassioned scientists are urgently discussing or dissing all theories dark - matter and energy. NASA gives an explanation in 101 terms. What would have the type of gravitational pull that would Hoover the space clean? Mysteries of the cosmos has the science world abuzz and awaiting Lawrence Rudnick's paper in Astrophysical Journal.
Not only has no one ever found a void this big, but we never even expected to find one this size," said study lead author Lawrence Rudnick of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
This is an exciting discovery dating the universe's incredible age to billions of years based on the CMB or Cosmic Microwave Background - the leftovers from the big bang. But there are those among us who fervently believe the Earth is a mere 6,000 years old. A focus on this science brings into sharp relief the universe's expansion, anomalies with the existence of the "ancient light" embedded in the CMB.

To find out more about the mysterious dark matter or what make mass in the universe we have books with a variety of theories. In Search of Dark Matter by Geoff McNamara and Ken Freeman is a book that describes the intricacies of our universe. There are some who believe we have multiverses.
