  • recent theories suggest that our Universe may just be one of countless bubbles of space-time.
  • no maximum possible temperature in the Universe.
  • accurate minimum possible temperature of -273ºc.
  • working in specialised laboratories, they cannot achieve this ultimate low temperature than -273ºc.
  • matter is not spread out evenly throughout the Universe.
  • on the largest-scale, the Universe lies up of thin filaments (fibre), each one made of millions galaxies that surround huge empty space that contain nothing but clouds of hydrogen (gas) between galaxies.
