In August of 2007, astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter such as galaxies, stars, and gas, and neither does it contain the strange and mysterious dark matter, which can be detected but not seen. The large void in the Constellation Eridanus appears to be improbable given current cosmological models. A radical and controversial theory proposes that it is a "universe-in-mass black hole"

The largest canyon in the Solar System cuts a wide swath across the face of Mars. Named Valles Marineris, the grand canyon extends over 3,000 kilometres long, spans as much as 600 kilometres across, and is as much as 8 kilometres deep. By comparison, Earth's Grand Canyon is 800 kilometres long, 30 kilometres across, and 1.8 kilometres deep. The origin of the Valles Marineris remains unknown, although a leading hypothesis holds that it started as a crack billions of years ago as the planet cooled. The above mosaic was created from over 100 images of Mars taken by Viking Orbiters in the 1970s.
