And, no, it’s not Al Gore. Astronomers at the University of Minnesota have discovered 6 billion trillion miles of emptiness…

AOL News – Astronomers Find Huge Hole in Universe
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 a giant expanse of nearly 6 billion trillion miles of emptiness, a University of Minnesota team announced Thursday.

Astronomers have known for many years that there are patches in the universe where nobody’s home. In fact, one such place is practically a neighbor, a mere 2 million light years away. But what the Minnesota team discovered, using two different types of astronomical observations, is a void that’s far bigger than scientists ever imagined.

The whole concept of nothingness and/or an infinite universe just blows my mind.

I wonder if this newly discovered cosmic void could be the source from which modern day liberalism draws all of its ideas and inspiration?

By the way, the above photo is not a photo of the giant hole. I just thought it looked cool…
