The darkness of the night sky is one of the pieces of evidence for a dynamic universe, such as the Big Bang model. If the universe is static, homogeneous at a large scale, and populated by an infinite number of stars, any sight line from Earth must end at the (very bright) surface of a star, so the night sky should be completely bright. This contradicts the observed darkness of the night.

Is it possible there is a real reason why Space is black?
What do you think?

This is an interesting topic though. To artists black is defined differently so it depends on who you ask.
