Heaven

August 5, 2008

I stopped believing in heaven around the time I learned Santa Claus didn’t exist. You know, when I grew up. But damn if this doesn’t sound like heaven itself. And it’s actually up there, where we’ve been looking all along.

Specifically, what we’ve found is an expanse of absolutely fucking nothing far, far away from here.

WASHINGTON — Astronomers have stumbled upon a tremendous hole in the universe. That’s got them scratching their heads about what’s just not there. The cosmic blank spot has no stray stars, no galaxies, no sucking black holes, not even mysterious dark matter. It is 1 billion light years across of nothing. That’s an expanse of nearly 6 billion trillion miles of emptiness, a University of Minnesota team announced Thursday.
