I spend the majority of my day at my desk, sat in front of a shaped box of plastic, metal, and light.

This is a question that has plagued astronomers, cosmologists, physicists and philosophers for years and we are no closer to a solid answer now than we were in the days of Aristotle. Keep in mind, though, that space isn’t necessarily empty. We call it a vacuum because there’s not a lot of…
Really makes you think. What is less than a vacuum that makes beyond the edge of the universe differ from the nothing that’s already there? If that makes sense …
