Gaping Hole In The Universe


#1

University of Minnesota astronomers have found an enormous hole in the Universe, nearly a billion light-years across, empty of both normal matter such as stars, galaxies and gas, as well as the mysterious, unseen �??dark matter.�?? While earlier studies have shown holes, or voids, in the large-scale structure of the Universe, this new discovery dwarfs them all.

The best part is one of the comments...Scroll down on the left hand side.

"Sir, I hate to correct you but this "gaping hole" that you're referring to has a name.

Dianna.

My ex girlfriend.

She also went by the title "Lincoln tunnel."

That's funny.

Only on T-Nation do some avatars make me completely forget about what the thread I clicked on is even about. Where am I again?

Most testosteronish place in the universe found!

"Stay the fuck out of Orion's southwest!"

The Eridanus Cosmic Gap seems to be too pissed of to allow galaxies or even stars to settle down near it. What a galactic stud!

If this thread were posted in the politics section, there would be a long debate on whether or not the hole was created by the United States.

Yeah. It's a conspiracy to confuse other scientists in the world.

It's a Dyson sphere. :wink:

Seriously, trying to make current models explain the universe is a mess. Scientists make up "dark matter" and "dark energy" to force them to work. There is still so much work to be done in science.
