The Supermassive Vacuum Cleaner At the Edge of the Known Universe

As humans, we tend to think that we have a reasonably good idea of what the universe is all about. We live on a small blue planet orbiting a star on the fringes of a thoroughly unremarkable galaxy in a universe that extends basically forever. No matter how far out you go, you’ll always feel at home, because the universe is pretty much the same in every possible location. Because of this, it’s suggested that the laws of physics don’t change and that what we find in our galactic neighborhood we’d also find billions of light years away. This homogeneous theory is called the Copernican principle, and it’s an axiom on which much of our scientific knowledge about the universe is built. It is also, very possibly, wrong.
