Lol its the "Nothing" from the never ending story! We just have to believe in our imagination and it will go away. make a wish! even two!
Great find as allways OP!
The hole is nearly a billion light-years across. It is not a black hole, which is a small sphere of densely packed matter. Rather, this one is mostly devoid of stars, gas and other normal matter, and it's also strangely empty of the mysterious "dark matter" that permeates the cosmos. Other space voids have been found before, but nothing on this scale.
